I don't think it's because of the air pressure. Kahit pa gaano kataas ang pressure na ilagay mo dyan, as long as naka set sa 100mm yan...hindi lalampas sa 100mm yan. 110 psi is already too stiff for my weight at naka 85psi lang yung fork ko and I weigh 70 kilos.

Nung bilhin ko ang X1 ko...halos lahat ng X1 na nakita ko sa Cycle Art eh naka set sa 120mm. Kahit yung X2 na binili ng ka-officemate ko eh naka set din sa 120mm. Bakit sa iyo eh naka 110mm? Lumampas ng 10mm? Yun ang pinagtataka ko. :)

no issues naman yung X1 ko, or hindi ko lang naririnig. pag ba non-tapered fork, pwede pa rin sa tapered frame? may adapter ba para mag-fit siya?

Ang alam ko, default setting ng 2012 26" X1 eh 120mm talaga. Pero di naman dapat magkakaproblema yan kahit papalitan ng travel at ipa adjust to 100mm. :)

@uckhet. Matsala sir. Baka nga Sticker lang yun.
Best travel ba Epicon 2012 26" X1 ang 120mm? Disregard sa frame size tulad ng akin 19".

Default Re: Epicon Suntour Suspension Fork

ang alam ko, dapat fit yung travel ng fork sa design ng geometry ng frame. if your frame is designed to have a 100 mm fork travel, then it's safe to say na dapat, 100 mm din yung fork na ilalagay mo. if you put a 120 fork on a 100 mm designed frame, sooner or later, baka bumigay yung frame mo. though it seems na walang kaso yung 10 mm na difference, magkakaroon naman malaking difference dun sa angle ng fork mo sa pagkakalagay sa headtube, and sempre, magkakaroon din ng stress sa headtube na baka in the long run, maging cause ng accident.

I got one of these forks and it didn't last for 15mins on my bike. Pag daan ko ng hump "pop!", angat na yung seal ng stanchion and nawalan na ng hangin. Pumped it up again and replaced the seal ganun ulit. It's now back at the shop and I'm waiting for a replacement. Hassle! :(

Guys, 8.7k ba talaga ang ongoing price ng 2012 x1 manual lock lockout? Yun na pinaka murang nakita ko sa cartimar.

^ sa quiapo globalcraze and cycleart 7.6k ang X1 manual lock-out, current prices yan bumili kasi ako kahapon ng sf11 epicon lod 6.2k.

btw pina timbang ko both forks X1(1.6kg) and sf11 epicon(1.68kg) both manual lock-outs, sf11 kinuha ko kasi parang hindi worth it yung extra 1.4k dun sa konting weight savings. imho

^ thanks sa info bro, buti pala hindi ako nagmadaling bumili, sayang din yung 1k na difference kahit magkalayo ang Quiapo and Cartimar.

Napa-isip din tuloy ako sa 2011 & 2012, hardly noticeable naman kasi yung weight difference..

Guys, confirmed ba na 2012 lang ang may clunking sound? if this is the case, i might settle for the 2011 na lang.. more practical :)
