Ricochet fork size
Hey, all. This is my first post, so please bear with me.
I have a '95 GT Ricochet (purple monster) that I want to use around town. I need to get the old elastomer Rock Shox fork off so I can put a hard fork on. How do I figure out what size (tube diameter and length) hard fork to replace it with? Any thoughts?
According to Bikepedia it came with an industry standard 1 1/8" threadless headset.
So you need a 1 1/8" threadless fork to go on, similar in overall length to the fork on it now - simply measure from the top of the fork crown to the axle to find that out. To work out how long a steerer you need, measure from the top of the fork crown to the top of the stem.
