You won't find this in any big box store.

You will find it from your LBS.

Entire noodle kits can also be purchased from Jef Bezos.

Just an update, ( and need to get my post #'s up so i can post pics)
I used tin foil to make a mold of the spring, and used black epoxy gasket material to form the boot with the mold,
looked like a chunk of fudge? Well put it in and it works great...

There are plenty of shops still in business despite a billionaires best efforts and the Trek trying to buy them all out and turn then into pure Trek stores.

We are out there and we would love to see you and your bike and see what we can do to help you out.
