    Raleigh m600 Fork Help

    WazUp

    I've had this Raleigh m600 for a very long time.
    Bought it new in 2002.
    It's served me well over the years but the Manitou Spyder R fork is SHOT and needs to be replaced. 17 years old !!! GEEZ... Ya Think!!!

    Looking for suggestions on a straight up replacement for around $100.


    Thanks,
    -Matt-

    you'd probably be better off getting this moved to 26er, shocks/suspension, or vintage.

    I've got a similar Raleigh as my trainer/shed bike. There are some older shocks still available, plus going rigid is an option. I recently replaced my totally wore-out manitou SX-E. I think you can find something that will work for cheap, but it will take a little digging around. I seem to remember there's a guy who specializes in rebuilding and selling the older shocks, if you dig around in the forums mentioned above you should be able to find him.
    skidding is the signature of the novice; learn how to use your brakes.

    Thanks Jim,

    I moved it into the 26er per your suggestion...

    I was looking through the selection of 26" forks at thebikeshopstore.com and there were a few in the price range I mentioned. I'm not sure I could get mine rebuilt for less.

    I will look for the fella you mentioned who does rebuilds in any case.
