    1995 Trek 950 Singletrack - Measuring for rigid fork ?

    Hi all,

    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 ???

    Thanks !

    Joe

    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

    I used to ride to Win ... Now I ride to Grin

    While my guitar gently weeps, my bike sits there mocking me

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