Susp. Forks for commuting.....

Postby BlueRider » 12 Feb 2020, 8:27pm

I recently acquired a bike with front suspension (Suntour NEX).

Not a fork for downhill MTB-ing but decent for commuting and the like.

After using it for a few weeks, I have grown rather fond it. No more bone shaking vibration or teeth jaring pot holes.

I don't mind the small weight penalty either as I am not racing and my commute is reasonable.

I can see why trekking bikes are so popular in Europe for commuting!
