How to work out which fork offset is right for me

wkkie

Does my arse look big on this saddle?
Because they're rather underwhelming once the cute price honeymoon is over. Less than satisfactory air spring sealing, and heavy-handed damping with poor adjustment. Ironically, the damping is better-suited to heavier riders, while the air piston seal blow-by definitely isn't!
Is that based on the newer EQ system or previous versions?

I'm also interested to hear about this as I have not had either of these issues with my previous Auron or current Durolux and I'm a relatively light rider.

Because I want it to look how it would look if I’d bought it, of course.
Your correct, Suntour need to take a leaf out of Tektros TRP book and release their high end stuff under a different name for the brand snobs. I think an online poll is in order similar to the one that got us the legendary Boaty McBoat face.

Maybe SRF? They could say it's Suntour Racing Forks but we would all know it stands for Suck it Rockshox and Fox.

Funny thing is, Suntour used to be a quality brand a long time ago.
They invented the angled parallelogram derailleur that followed the shape of the cassette. In the early 80's I swapped out my campag pedals for Suntour pedals. Back then it was a significant upgrade. A lot has happened since then.

But SRF is already a Swiss tv station

FFS, only Mezzers I can find in stock are 51mm offsets.

Might have to pull the trigger on a Lyrik if I can't find the appropriate mezzer today.
Does the frames specs say what offset it was designed with? Sometimes this is noted. Given you’ve never ridden the bike I’m betting you won’t notice any difference from 42-51 or at the very least it won’t make any difference to your experience on the bike.
With the price being so good on the Mezzers I’d be pushing the buy now button on those.

I looked around Pyga's (pretty crap) website and unfortunately couldn't find anything regards whether the bike had been designed for any particular offset.

Pretty set on 42-44mm, given some of the testimonies listed in this thread.

Pushys on eBay has a black 42mm offset 170 Ultimate for $1330 delivered (including discount if you are an eBay plus member). Even with buying the 150 air shaft on top is the cheapest I could find.

Shame you missed out on the Mezzer.
