Felt QX85 - Want to change my forks.
Have a 2011 Felt QX85 with the following stock forks....
Felt Alloy Unicrown Fork: 1 1/8th Cromo Steerer tube, Alloy Crown and Legs, Disc Brake Specific w/Fender eyelets.
I am considering changing them to suspension forks, with lockout facility. Main reason being that I got a new MTB delivered for my wife today with suspension forks and I love them, first time I ever used them - Now sort of wishing I had bought the Felt QX90 which comes with the sus forks as standard - Anyway, I didnīt, and I really donīt fancy buying a new bike so fork upgrade is the only option for me.
I have found these forks, which are very similar to the model which is actually on the QX90, but how can I be sure that these will be compatible ?
Suntour NRX S RL Air 700c Forks
So. 1. How do I know they are compatible ?
2. Do I have to change the "Headset Cups" ?
I donīt mind looking at other makes of forks, loads of options by the seems of it at the bike shops, but need to know what is compatible, and what is not... if it is 700c, will it always be compatible for instance ? Any recommendations for forks, donīt mind spending up-to 250, iīm sure thatīs enough given the bikes worth....
