eto sabi sakin ng suntour:

"Thanks for your interest in our product. This is a very popular fork for our team here at SR Suntour and no one has personally come across what you are describing.



What I may recommend is to check the negative coil spring that is in the air chamber to make sure it is lubricated with a light weight grease as it is the only moving part inside the fork that could cause any type of mechanical clunking.

Yup! pareho ang mga naririnig ko, and I just ask someone to buy it for me, it is annoying but from what I heard here, it doesn't affect the performance. Anyone here manage to get rid of that clunking noise, if it is, can you please inform us to what you did or further more post a pic as well. TIA

Default Re: SR Suntour Epicon Fork

I have a question with all other epicon users here. How does the lock-out work? Coming off from XCR, I can lock the fork at any travel I prefer. But on my epicon sa max travel lang sya pwede malock, ganito po ba talaga ang epicon? Need info kasi I was thinking na defective ang epicon ko, unless it is designed to work that way. Any help is appreciated.

Default Re: SR Suntour Epicon Fork

(paumanhin admins/mods, i've already posted this dun sa "other" na forum. naghahanap lang ako ng mas madaming input. at me kinalaman din naman sa epicon na fork e. :) tnx )

hi guys. tulong naman please.:)

ganito po kasi yun.

my frame is a cannondale SL4, with 1.5 headtube. ito po yung headtube, na 1.5 staright, from top to bottom. i recently bought a 2012 x1 epicon na tapered, para kako magfit sa bottom part ng headtube, at hindi na ako bumili ng adaptor (1.5 to 1 1/8 ). ang siste, nung nandun na ako sa lbs, wala kaming makita sa stocks nila na compatible headset, kundi yung murang "KRISTEL" lang. no choice kami, so kinabit na namin. ang problema, hindi lumalapat yung top seal, may space na mga 1 o 1.5 mm dun sa upper headtube race. nung nagbike ako pauwi, though hindi naman gumagalaw yung fork, may naririnig mga tunog, feeling ko, naglalaro sa loob ng headset.

in this regard, could you guys recommend kung anong headset ang mas fit para sa headtube ko?

thanks.

:)

Pinatingin ko sa cycle art ung x1 ko regarding dun sa clunking sound... inadjust nya ung negative coil spring dapat daw kasi magkadikit yun and naka extend yung travel adjustment rod (di ako sure sa tawag a) all the way out. nung una kasi binuksan kita ko na nakapalob yung rod na yun... nawala yung tunog for a while pero bumalik ulit pero this time di na ganon ka ingay and at least 1/2 of the stachons na ung lumulubog bago tumong, ( di katulad nung una konting lubog lang nakakairita na) :D

Para sa mga naka Epicon TAD
TA is for travel adjust di ba...how does this actually work?

Does it limit the lower end or the higher end of travel? Or does it shift also the travel..lets say from 80 to 120...does it shift the travel to 100 to 140mm.

Does the TAD model has lock out function also? i assume it has the pre-load and dampening function still.
