- has anyone fitted a softer spring to their kids suntour xtc jr 20 forks?
if so where did you source a spring? or have you modded one for another fork?
oldest kid is only 3 stone and a bit, and not getting much travel out of them (i know they’re crap) so would like to (if its a cheap fix) put a softer spring in them) the youngest will be moving up to a 20″ anytime now and I will have to do the same to his….
and(before we get into whether they “need” them) they ‘want’ sus forks for the rooty trails as they say the rigids are too bumpy and hurt their hands, and to be fair they ride some pretty rooty trails which I wouldn’t want to ride rigid either!Posted 5 years agocarlphillipsMember
@matzzz wouldn’t stretching it make the spring stiffer due to coils being altered.
@sp the tyres aren’t rock hard, but they ride rocks/roots so can’t run them that soft.
@tj (lol remember him) only one spring fitted…thats the 1st thing i went to do and was surprised that one side was empty..Posted 5 years agoJunkyardMember
Can you remove one spring and try that? No different to having an air chamber in one leg and damping in the other IYSWIM.
Did this to my kids and made no difference except tp male the forks drop not evenly and wedge at an an angle – never even ridden like this just me testing itPosted 5 years ago
I went for removal to rigid tbh to save weight
