    Was looking at cheap-ish straight steerer 26″ air forks with lockout (stealth ad if anyone’s got any Rebas etc for sale?!) for an old school build, and came across Air Bike Forks via eBay – anyone used/heard of them?

    Dirt cheap, low weight.. anyone had a go on a pair? Basically £100 for 100mm air fork with lockout weighing about 1.6kg..

    They’re widely recommended by dentists and cosmetic surgeons nation wide.

    In all seriousness, at that price point and weight, they’re likely to be at the very least horrid if not out right dangerous so would fit a retro build perfect.

    I’ve not followed the link but there are plenty of “fox alike” forks from Ali express etc at lower prices than that if you’re willing to gamble.

    That’s (supposedly) a 26″ sid, carbon crown and steerer at 1595g

    Draw your conclusions.

    Aren’t these effectively rebranded suntour epicon / epicon copies with gold stanchions and funky lockout design added. Chassis, wheel size, steer options & weight all look the same and the 100-140mm travel variants as the epicons were internally adjustable.
