Does anyone have a source for finding replacement parts to older bikes? In my case a 2002 Enduro.
I purchased the bike brand new back in July 2002, but that was so long ago I cannot find any of my original paperwork, I have all my original manuals, even the Fox Float RL user Manual, but no proof of purchase. I spoke to my Local Specialized dealer and to Specialized directly and there is nothing they will do for me without some sort of record, so no point in barking up that tree.
I really need a new bike, I love the Specialized brand, this is my second of four Specialized bikes, and the only one I purchased new, but with a huge tax bill this year I am on a major budget. I found a crack on the seat post stem a few rides ago, but have fixed it with a Hose clamp for now... yeah, not the best, but cheaper than getting it welded, and it works.
I noticed a few rides ago that the bolt that holds the bottom of the rear shock in the FSR linkage was spinning in place, but I did not notice until last week there there was a crack in the linkage bracket itself. I took it apart and found it was done for.
I emailed Specialized and whoever answers the emails says they do not have any replacement parts for my bike.
So, long story short, does anyone know if there is a good source for finding old parts, or should I throw in the towel and start saving again for a new bike? I plan to head back to my local specialized dealer and see if they have any sources, but I have my doubts.
Here are some pictures to show you the fun I have been having this year:
I figure this is a long shot, but you never know.
