    1" SID for Bonty?

    Does anybody have one of these they want to sell? I just picked up a NOS Bontrager Race and I'd like to put on a nice suspension fork. Not so excited about a Judy - so it looks like either a SID or a rigid fork.
    Anybody?

    I can build you a Judy with Total Air or White Bro's cartridge, even factory Judy internals. I have a few sets of new bushings & seals collecting dust, lowers with and w/o disc tabs, even long castings with canti-hangers! Also have a 1'' Bonty Mag 21 crown and MAG 21 lowers to make a fork. Anything to trade? -John Y.

    I highly recommend you try rigid, i have a 98 sid i use from time to time on my racelite, but i find the handling and control is infinitely better with a rigid fork - i got walt at waltworks to put me something together to reflect the length of a sagged 63mm judy/with bontrager offset. i totally rate it.

    i've got one inch, who needs more?

    (wanted small or medium 93 or earlier race lite, must have bonded TT cable guides)

    You know...I'm leaning toward rigid front now. Maybe a Blacksheep Ti fork?

    95Bonty: Why did you decide to go disc up front?

    If you have a Bontrager, put a Bontrager Race or Comp fork on it. Or is yours suspension corrected?

    i put a disk on it as my 1998 SID came stock with an iso disk mount, so I just ended up moving to a disk front/vbrake rear setup. no particular "reason"
