- Replacing suspension with a solid fork 3 answers
I'm looking to do a bit of light touring and want to outfit an old mountain bike to be up to the task. But most of the bikes I'm looking at have some crappy/mid-range suspension on them, which – to my understanding – only adds weight and an additional point of failure (at least from the perspective of touring).
What I'm wondering about is, is it possible to buy a fixed fork for a bike and replace the suspension?
If so, what sort of things should I watch out for?
