    I have a Raleigh Summit MTB approx. 20 year old which is in v.good condition having not been used for many years. All works apart from the Rock Shox which no longer seem to pump up to pressure and are very soft. I am told that since this bike was made that headstock / fork sizes have all changed and mine is obsolete. My local Rock Shox dealer was very dismissive and unhelpful suggesting I should buy a new bike and scrap my old one (so much for bikers being environmentally freindly!). Can anyone tell me how I can either get these forks repaired or if I can get a replacement set from somewhere. I only want the bike for general purpose use and the odd easy trail ride.

    At that age, they’d probably be 1-inch steerer rather than the now accepted norm of 1 1/8-inch. If it has threaded headset, probably 1-inch.

    There are some 1-inch about on eBay but these tend to be low market ones. Personally, I’d go to a better dealer for repair and/or consider a rigid pair for general use and easy trail.

    Just gone back to retro-rigid myself! 8)
