    Hello...I just picked up this new from my LBS for almost nothing...anyone know what year it is? I thought it was a 2005 but the 5th Element book says 2002. Also...assuming I get any ride time with the rear shock which seems to break constantly...what mildly affordable fork would ya,ll recommend? image.jpg

    Look at the serial number on the BB, date of manufacture is typically coded into the number.

    Thanks. I'll look up how to decode it...cuz it looks like it would be an 02,04, or 06.

    Did some more searching and I'm confident it's an 04.

    Not an 02, the decals and the head tube gusset are from some time later. At least 04.
