    Hi - having written off the front of my subway 2 I need to either replace like for like the front forks, wheel and rotor or upgrade. As I have to work on a budget does anyone have any advice with regards whats avialble by way of upgrading and how to go about it, or is it best to go with the std setup?

    Depends on what you want to do and if you were happy with the old setup. If you're working to a budget you're options are a little limited. Try asking yourself these questions 1 - was the old set up OK, do I need to upgrade ?
    or do I just want a new toy [nothing wrong with that, we all love new gadgets, just be honest with yourself]. 2 - do I need new bits or will used ones do ? 3 - how much can I spend ?
    You may find it's cheaper to buy a second hand carrera and strip it for the forks then keep / sell on the rest as spares or sell yours for spares and put the cash to a higher spec bike.

    Cracking off the peg wheels for £150 (full set) are Mavic Crossrides. Worthy upgrade, poss out of budget though.
