    Front Sus Help - EST1000

    Greetings to all..

    Pretty new to the forum here, though i've been reading (and lovin) the large amount of information + ppl here on the threads...

    Happened to find my old bike from whence i cycled around college in 1994: A cannondale EST1000.

    After a complete tuning, the bike works wonderfully. Only trouble is, i'm now 30 pounds heavier then before, and would really looove a better front fork, one with at least some travel, vs the @!$#@ pepperoni it came with.

    Does anyone have any idea what fork, or recommendations as to the forks this particular bike would take? I went around my neighborhood bike shops, and all they said were that such forks are not made anymore

    And if you do have a fork that would fit this bike, and would like to sell it, pleasssse feel free to drop me a PM.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Trevor

    Check ebay for an old Rockshox MAG21 (As parts for it are still available).
    A 'modern" fork won't fit as the E.S.T. uses a flex stem with a 1 1/4 steerer tube I believe....

    Thnks so much for the advice..

    hmm.. MAG21.. wow, doesn't come up quite often.. even those that are on Ebay are all 1 1/8.

    What about the older Judys? Would they work?

    As long as the steerer tube diameter is the same any fork will fit.
    Oh, and another thing is that your fork uses a threaded steerer tube with the Girvin stem being a quill stem so you have to look out for that too.
    Instead of upgrading your aged EST I would strip it, sell it in parts and check the classifieds for a newer bike like a Super V , 1st Gen Jekyll etc......
