SR Suntour provides control of the Evo’s 150mm of rear wheel movement and upfront David also runs an SR Suntour Auron 160mm fork. We’ve even been told his settings with the TriAir rear shock set at 190psi and the Auron fitted with 4 volume spacers 90psi, 2 clicks of high and 8 of low-speed compression.
