1995 Diamondback vertex front fork replacement
#1
Hi all, I'm new here and need a little assistance if possible. I've been out of the MTB scene for about ten years now and am trying to get back into it. I used to ride a Cannondale super v900 back in the late 90's and sold it in 2001. Recently I purchased a 1995 diamondback vertex with a bad front fork(manitou x-vert) for cheap$$$. What size fork is needed to get this bike functional and trail worthy again? I'm pretty certain it needs a threaded fork, but what size? (1 1/8)?? The components are all in good working order...... Would it be a waste of money to invest in this as a re-starter bike just to get going until I can afford a better bike?

thanks for any help and advice
