Seen some Suntour Epicon RLD 120mm for £189. Was gonna buy some rebas as I thought my bike ( Carrera Vulcan was heavy) I must be weighing it on my scales wrong as its saying 2.4 stone after taking my weight off. Even though claimed weight was 14kg in standard SPEC for a 2009 Carrera Vulcan v spec.
I’ve binned the suntour xct and standard wheels and got Rockshox Tora coils and shimano xm317 on slx hubs and deore brakes.Posted 4 years agob rMember
I’d look first at whatever RS you could get at that price from Merlin/On-One.

I’ve got Epicons, and know a couple of other people who have them too, and I can’t say a word against them. Good fork, the feel doesn’t seem any less sophisticated than say Fox Floats, and they’re reasonable light for a fork which does up to 140mm travel. Good customer service from their repairs and service department as well.Posted 4 years agoclubberMember
I had some. I thought they were pretty good esp for the moneyPosted 4 years agooccamsrazorMember
Just FYI, the issue with the axles locking in the middle of convertible hubs (as mentioned at the end of clubber’s review from a couple years ago) is no longer an issue as all the new forks come with the 2nd-version QLOC2 axle (identifiable by a gold band at the end). This allows you to lock the springy red aluminium bit before you pull out the axle so it doesn’t get stuck midway. It’s a really nice axle system in my opinion. The v2 axles are also backwards-compatible and can be ordered separately if you wish. There’s also a more expensive Ti version.Posted 3 years agoveedubdaveSubscriber
I have some on one of my bikes. Do all the things I need! Loads of them on ebay at bargain prices (direct from Taiwan) – http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_trksid=p2050601.m570.l1313.TR7.TRC1.A0.H0.Xepicon&_nkw=epicon&_sacat=0&_from=R40 I expect that you will probably have to pay import duty at about £20.00Posted 3 years ago
