I have survived BB hell with minor bruising to be greeted with another challenge replacing forks.
I have a 1996 TREK 8000 SHX (yellow) and a 2002 TREK 4300 (silver/blue) MTB bikes. Both bikes have 21" frames. I want to get my wife and I into trail riding and I am looking to replace the suspension forks.
As beginners, I do not want to break the bank buying these forks. I know a crucial point is getting the steerer tube length and diameter correct. What are my considerations? Is there a way to look up the lengths of the tubes for 21" frame? I do not have the physical old parts.
Thanks in advance.
