You may end up getting a different axle size forks which wouldn't be compatible with wheels and so on...

Nice work so far!

Ye was just thinking that

It's true what people say, once you start you just can't stop lol

Why not just choose QR front and rear?

I'd still buy forks though.

I used to have that bike - loved it and regret selling it, but a mate was desperate so I sold it him for bigger all :(

A little up date on the bike

Been debating now for a long time on what wheels to buy? And after the ride up snowdon what killed the bearings on the rear hub! It was time to choose a set. I didn't want to spend a fortune on they with the plan to upgrade the forks with a bigger quick release so I will have to change the hubs at somepoint. So I found some Halo Freedoms on eBay for a good price.
I think they look pretty smart, well built and strong.

Hi everyone,

I've got a little question I'm hoping someone can answer for me?

As you will know I've got some rock shox xc32 tk which are abit too soft for me and I've heard you can swap the damping units for this: RockShox Compression Damper Assy Argyle MoCo w/Internal Gate?

Does anyone know if they do fit my forks? And if so is it a straight swap or is there abit of modding needed?

I know there not the best forks to start off with but with a baby on the way in 6 months time I can't afford to be buying new forks and just want my xc32's to perform abit better to keep me going for longer!!

Thanks in advance
Paul

Added some decals and a firmer coil spring in the forks. Ready for the weekend in Scotland

Fantastic project. And a great looking bike. Good to see your still using your frame this far on.

Most others seem to spends thousands.

Is the rear mudguard a replacement for a standard crud guard type that hangs over the rear wheel?

I'm looking for a rear mud guard and that looks neat.

Hi there,
Thanks for the feedback
The mudguard is a Bender Fender XL modded to fit on the rear.

It's been a long time since an update but that's because I've not done anything to the bike but ride it.

Decided to treat myself to a slx dual crank tho this year.

Not at the moment since I fitted a harder coil spring they will do me. Plus I can't decide which forks to get as I'm restricted on the qr size and the head tube size. Don't want to pay a small fortune for them too lol

Time for a long awaited for update:

Decided to do something a little different, going to wrap most if not all my bike in carbon fibre vinyl.
Already started on my guards:

Also bought myself some air forks finally. Not fit them yet but there a bargain for what I payed for them and with a 140mm travel should be a lot better then my rock shox's

Should be nice those.

Out of interest, does that rear mud guard do anything aside from keeping the seat tube clean?...
