Wtd: Cheap Seatpost, forks, headset and rear wheel – HT 2nd bike build
Thanks for looking
I am trying to learn how to maintain my bikes properly and also want a decent yet low-key bike to go out with my kids locally and can leave chained up without attracting unwanted attention.
With this in mind I have bought a well used Cotic Soul frame and am going to build it from the frame up with spare parts that i have lying around and also can source on here.
Right now, I need;
Forks – cheap as possible. rigid or suspension. can look tatty – QR & disc mount.
Headset – I believe the cotic soul is 1.125″ (correct me if I’m wrong but that is 1 1/8?)
Possibly a rear wheel? 26″ qr for disc brakes.
As mentioned, cheap cheap is the order of the day so not looking for super shiny fox forks or a chris king headset. Rather good quality used and older kit that is gathering dust but doesnt deserve to be chucked away. I’m not bothered by scratches as long as they don’t impede performance
please either drop me a line here or on firstname.lastname@example.org

back in the land of the living. Johnny, as per email i’ll let you know about the wheels.
Having discussed the forks with a trusted friend of mine he has convinced me to spend a little more on the forks so will re-visit that. so Injured and rob, thanks for the offers but think i will pass on this for now.
Tom, please can I have a pic of the headset and the seatpost pls? How long is the seatpost?
cheers all, and thanks again for replying!
