    Anyone know where I can get some old school Rock Shox SIDs????

    Love the new bikes! However, I am very happy with my 15 year old rigs... but man, finding parts for them is tough!

    I have been shopping for a short travel (80mm or less) fork with V-Brake posts and can't seem to find any.

    I am pretty much set on Rock Shock SIDs Hydra-Air because of the low weight, anyone know where I can get some?

    mtbforksbymark.com is a hobbiest fork geek from Central California that seems to have a great selection of stuff (mostly Marzhochi) for older frames and v brakes. Looks pretty legit but I have not bought anything there.

    Much Thanks! I am going to give them a call to see what they have, I am in no hurry, I am just looking for a spare fork.

    The fork I have on my bike now was just rebuilt and working great.

    I just want a spare on hand since we all know we can't just go to the local LBS and get these when needed.

    If that's an 1" SID, they are tough to find! But those look like 1 1/8" so ebay or CL. Or you could luck into them laying around in shops, you'll have to scour around like the rest of us. I got mine on ebay last year? Had to pay more than I wanted but I love them so it was worth it to me.

    1 and 1/8 SID. Yeah I have looked on Ebay, and it seems rebuild kits are plentiful, so I have to problems with a bad one... I just want the externels to be straight and true with a decent original paint condition.

    Yours look clean. You can't just rebuild and overhaul them?

    I can, I have about 3 pairs of seals and 1 rebuild kit, and that should be enough, however... you never know. Also it's nice to have a fork ready to go when I need it since I just can't go down to the local LBS and pick one up.

    true true and I thought about that too... I don't like clutter. However, I got a place on the wall in the garage a spare fork.
