I have a 2001 yellow Schwinn Homegrown; believe it is an 18” frame. Been trying to update parts but having trouble finding a speck sheet or an owner’s manual. “Tomato” needs some loven; a new fork is needed badly. I have been looking at a Manitou R7 Pro. Not shur what size I need? I would love if someone could email me an owner’s manual, or tell me where to find one?
You’ll need a standard 1-1/8″ (straight) steerer tube fork. The fork on the bike originally was 80mm travel but that’s pretty tough to find these days. You can go to a 100mm travel fork without altering the handling too much.
