I dont know where this thread should go as I have an electric folding bike,and I
am a clydsdale.
I have a generic chinese electric folding bike with zoom suspension forks.the forks seem to bottom out easily and make a large banging noise when returning
to the unloaded position.
Is the any fix such as some sort of rubber bumper that can be placed inside the fork,or should I find a solid fork for v brakes.I am on a budget and I dont
want to spend a fortune.I assume the fork is 1" threaded.
If zoom has an upgraded suspension fork I may go that way.
I love the look of the mek suspension fork for 20" wheels but at $300 us my pocket book say's no.
You could get a Zoom upgrade HERE .. $60 won't break the bank and it does have adjustable pre-load... whether or not it will handle your weight would be a good question for Dr. Yan .. beyond that, a solid fork and fat tire would be a popular recommendation ..
Thanks for the replies,the zoom fork suggested has a 1,1/8 steerer mine is one inch threaded, and no lockout.Where is that site? I already have the schawbe 20x2 big apples and so far I really like them.
Does anybody know where to get a solid fork for v brakes and 20" wheels in montreal????? Another newbie question, would it be better to get a fork with some rake or just inline with the headset. Aluminum or steel?
I paid 700 for this bike and despite rear wheel problems with spoke breakage
I love it.Gonna get a double walled rim with 12 gauge spokes for rear.The electric assist flattens out hills.
