    Question frozen fork

    my front fork gets stiff in the cold weather and when i bring my bike back inside the fork seems to warm up. what could be my problem.

    what brand of fork is it and what brand of bike? also, what year is the bike and fork?

    it's possible you have an older for that uses MCU (micro cellular urythane) rather than a metal spring. in the cold the MCU will harden that could be the cause of the problems.

    also, if the fork is that old, the seals are possibly dry and as hard as a Goodie Comb. in which case it's probably time for a new fork.

    look on line at places like

    supergo.com
    performancebike.com
    jensonusa.com
    pricepoint.com

    for deals on forks....

    also, do you know if you have a threadless or threaded headset?

    do you knwo if you have a 1" or 1 1/8" headtube?

    if not, i can post some photos that will help you indentify.
