With there being limited options in the 1⅛/ 9mm-QR axel variety for my older hardtail. This has been great so far. While I still need to zone in on making it perfect for me it is still way better then the Suntour fork i replaced. I used the 120mm, 27.5" version on my 26" hardtail with no issues. This being my first air fork, I had to get a pump, but it was already aired up with about 100psi.
I bought this fork to replace the damaged Suntour XCM on my Specialized Pitch. Transformed the whole feel of the bike. I'm 240lbs, ride mostly technical trails with lots of roots and I was able to get the sag and dampening dialed in to my liking with no trouble at all. I would buy again without hesitation.
Was worried that I overpaid for an entry level air fork, but I have to say.. it's a damn good fork. Simple, yet effective.
This thing is awesome. Light, responsive, and a looker with all the red decals. The gloss black stanchions look great too! There's not a lot to select from for QR 1 1/8 steerer forks. Very thankful that this is available. For the quality and performance you're getting. It's worth the price. I wish they continue to do make more as I will buy this fork again in case my current one gets wasted.
takes me awhile to get things dialed in--I,m liking this fork but have questions.
1) is the rebound knob only suppose to rotate 90 degrees?
2)only able to get 100mm travel-suppose to be 120mm?
