Bike came with Rockshox Judy front suspension fort. The cantilever brake hanger is broken. What front suspension should I use to replace the old Rockshox (no disc brake).

Thanks!

If the fork works, and isn't otherwise structurally unsound, just swap out the brake and lever for V brakes. No hanger required, and you can likely get it rolling for under $30.....

If the fork is badly rotted or damaged, most replacements of any quality will no longer have a hanger on them, so you'd need to run V's anyway.

Just need to run cantis? About the only choice that I know of is base level RST stuff, or get lucky with eBay and an old Marzocchi or something.

Thanks for the response! I should have noted that the shocks aren't holding air so likely a full replace rather than trying to rebuild. So RST would be best? For my uses I thought about a regular fork on this ride.

For a squishy fork, new, yep, RST.

Or, like I said, try eBay, you never know.


"Regular" fork? As in rigid? Sure, a possibility too, but you'd still need to solve the hanger issue by purchasing one kind or another....
