Replacing an elastomer spring?

  1. Hi,

    I have a very nice 10-year-old Proflex bike, still overall in good shape except for the rear
    elastomer spring. It seems the company no longer exists, so I am looking for alternatives, either
    buying such elastomer springs from some other source, or using something else that works as well.
    For the time being, I am actually using a stack of rubber gaskets, but of course that does not work
    nearly as well as the real thing.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Ingo

    Thanks a lot! I just looked it up on the Web, and it seems there is a dealer near me.

    Wonderful information!

    Most dealers don't stock them, you probably will have to special order them unless you get lucky or order over the internet. Best bet for stocking among LBS is one that focusses on competition MTB or possibly bents.
