Front fork sieze help
#1
Hi, I have a Hooligan supercycle and it has been sitting in my basement for a year, the back shock works fine but the front moves about an inch. It has Pure suspension shocks. I don't think I would be able to afford new bike or shocks and am looking for an easy fix but don't know how or what to do, advice/tutorials/instructions would be nice Smile


Ps: I know it's not the best bike, please don't talk trash about it in the replies. Thanks Smile

Just to let you know the shocks on department bikes in that price range aren't really shocks.. basically just springs... It just gives a look that the masses buy into. Those bikes are not meant to go off road or do stunts. There should be a sticker on that bike on the frame or fork that says that. I wouldn't invest to much in fixing the bike besides keep it running. Is the bike still ridable?

What kind of riding do you do? Do you ride on pavement? or off road? commuter to work or to school?

yes it is still rideable I was just wondering if there was a way to fix the shocks. And a bit of all of what you said. More commuting and trails though. Is there a good bike that can hit jumps that you would suggest for the future?
