    Replacing the fork on my 2000 Schwinn Moab 1

    Im looking at possibly replacing the fork on my moab to something thats a little less bouncy. Alot of the time I feel like jumping on a water bed when Im trying to pedal with some power behind it lol. Heres a link to the bike if your curious.

    http://www.bikepedia.com/Quickbike/B...Disc&Type=bike

    I know alot of modern bikes have longer travel and that would change my head tube angle, effecting the way the bike steers. Are there forks that are worth getting that wont effect that, or would it be better to try to rebuild my fork?

    Also will the disk mounts on a new fork match up to my old Hayes brakes?

    A bike that new, there should be decent suspension fork options.
    An older Fox Float 80 that was PUSH'ed would be killer.
    If you wanted, send your fork to Jerry at Hippietech Suspension and he can rebuild it to however you want. A SID or a Bomber. Lots of decent performing forks to choose from.

    Disc brake mounts shouldn't be an issue. I'm assuming its IS and not Post Mount?

    In reading the stickies, I believe 1995 or older. On the other hand, "classic" doesn't always have an age requirement. And retro is technically something new that's made to reflect the styling of an older item.

    No, posting about a 2000 Schwinn Moab in the VRC forum is probably not appropriate unless it was decked out with some cool VRC components.

    Oops, I posted it here because when I did a search on the bike most of the hits were in this form.

    Mods, could you move this to the appropriate form?

    You can post it here, you just might not get the replies or info you need.

    Not sure where this would technically go. Suspension forum or maybe General?

    Get a new Fox fork, then get a bike as nice as the fork.
