View Full Version : Replacing front shocks

Hey cycleheads :D

I've noticed this season so far that my front shocks on my McKinley are pretty much done. I'm getting only a half inch, if that, total deflection when hitting bumps, potholes, etc, so it's pretty much like riding with a solid front fork.

I was wondering what suggestions you guys would have for a good, but affordable, set of replacement shocks that are good for street and pathway riding. The McKinley does NOT touch gravel or specific offroad, only pavement. The back spring is still fine and is taking impacts well, so it's just the front shocks that need replacing.

Best fork you'll find for that price.
