1995 Trek 950 Singletrack - Measuring for rigid fork ?
I have an old 1995 Trek 950 Singletrack that has a mushy old Answer Manitou Spyder fork with no lockout. I would like to just pick up a cheap steel rigid fork since I mostly just use the bike to ride for exercise. I'm pretty sure it's a 1" headset but rigid forks seem to come in all different lengths and I'm not sure which one to order from Modern Bike. I see 140x50, 170x50, 200x50....what does it all mean ???
the first number is how long the steer tube is and the second number means that the top 2 inches are threaded ... measure your fork from the the bottom race for the bearings to the top of the steer tube ... thats the length you need

Trek went to 1 1/8" steerer tubes in 1991. One inch won't work.
