thanks for the tips.. she is rigid,, now we will see how well it works. I will keep an eye out for an used rigid fork, but that will be my back up plan.. for those who are wondering. simply just gorilla tape. no more boing... and it's reversible. as to how long it lasts,, who knows.

yes, yes, yes,, a rigid would be less weight,, but it's only my training bike,, plus gives me a nice excuse in group rides as to why I am so stinkin' slow...

next project. for those who wish to chime in....

who out there has tried "ghetto tubless"? experiences??? air pressure pretty stable, or are you always adding more air.

Our insurance company has "strongly suggested" that we tell you that Mountain Biking can be dangerous. If you're visiting this site it's very likely that you're already aware that if you insist on having a good time by riding your mountain bike, eventually you will almost certainly fall down and collect any number of boo-boos, dings and injuries, serious or otherwise, but we have to tell you anyway.

Mountain Biking is a potentially hazardous activity carrying a significant risk of bodily injury and even death. Mountain biking should only be undertaken if you have a complete awareness of these risks. You can reduce the level of risk by wearing a helmet and by riding within your own skill level.
