Fitting suspension forks to a Specialized Sirrus Sports ?

Postby Maleyale » 6 Jul 2020, 8:21pm

Hi there this is my first question/post.
I would like to fit suspension forks to my specialised sirrus sports. I just wondered if anyone could tell me if this is possible. If so where's good place to look at getting some. TIA. Dave....

there are lots of different versions of this bike and no-one can advise you unless you say which yours is and/or show a picture of it. However (IIRC) all versions share one common feature; they do not have 'suspension corrected' geometry, so fitting a suspension fork will raise the front end and (in the simplest terms) mess the steering geometry up.

cheers

Way less hassle to just sell it and buy a bike with suspension if that is what you want. Another case of bought the wrong bike?
