SR Suntour Epixon fork info share

Postby Highspeedgt » Sun Jan 14, 2018 1:12 pm

I wanted to share about the Epixon fork. I've put about 400 miles on this fork over the past season, only about 45 miles at 100mm, then I bumped it up to 120mm and it's been there for the remainder.

I gotta say that I'm impressed with it's performance for the price. I really like that SR Suntour offers a decent air fork for some in between-er frames (straight steerer with 27.5 wheels), and that it's really easy to work on. They also offer a 26 inch, and a 29er version of the fork. I think this could be a major upgrade for a lot of big box bikes. I'm currently using it on my REI CO-OP DRT 1.1.

Here are some vids covering the fork itself, as well as changing the fork travel to a different length.

Play with your fluid levels to get that fox 32 feel because it changes your epixons dramatically. I have epicons and that chatter goes away with adding slightly more fluid.

Just curious, by fluid are you talking air pressures?

He's talking about the oil damper that controls your rebound. The fluid level can drop (blow-by) when you ride hard. It's a good idea to keep some handy, it might work better than the grease you used in the video.

Here's one brand, I suppose motorcycle shock fluid would work fine.
