    Quadra 21R top cap
    I'm replacing the old elastomers in my Quadra 21R fork with coil springs. It seems like the thread on one of the top caps has stripped as it just pops up and out after I screw it in. Any ideas of where to get replacements? Any alternate options (i.e. are there any other rock shox top caps that would fit this fork)? Thanks!

    Do they have plastic threads? If they do, they were recalled in about 1995, because under compression the spring can pop out and hit you in the chest.

    Thanks, dthomp325 - I ended up finding a bike store on ebay that happened to have some of the re-issued top cap kits left from after the recall (actually only one left). Can't believe I found one!
