    Fork Recommendations - ParkPre Pro Elite Ti w Judy

    I own an old XC ParkPre Pro Elite titanium frame bike with the original RockShox Judy. I use the bike mostly on XCountry trails and some mountain trails. I'm 6' and weight just over 220 lbs. Here's the real catch....I'd like to keep the old brakes and not have to switch to discs. Remote lock-out would be good.

    A friend recommended the RockShox SID Race....what do you think?

    You can keep the original brakes if they are V-brakes...but cantilever brakes will not work with forks since about 1998 as forks do not include a hanger. As long as it is a 1 1/8" headtube, a SID Race (still available with brake studs) will work. Manitou R7 Super would be another option for an XC fork available with brake studs.
