    Old frame Old Fork lil upgrade.

    Hi all folks, bike fans and passionate drivers...I have a little perplexity so i need an advice.
    I have an old frame Trek, i think it's from '99, with almost destroyed rock shox pilot fork. So, could i change old fork with some fork like SR Sountor XCM-lo from '07, '08, without additional parts and problems.
    This is a picture of Frame "head".
    Thanks a lot.

    While not quite the appropriate forum, you should be fine. You will have to move the headset crown race from the Rock Shox fork to the Suntour fork - it's the little circle of metal at the bottom of the steer tube on the fork. Once you pull the fork out, you will see what I'm talking about.

    Google "crown race removal" and find out how to do it yourself. Some shops may do it for you for $5. Or, you have to get a new headset.
