    Fork Question

    Hey guys, I have a 05 Fuji Nevada with a SR Suntour XC 60 fork (crappy elastomer). Anyways I was riding yesterday, and noticed a very faint squeaking sound every few minutes or so. By the end of the ride (~1 hour) it was squeaking over every bump, root, rock, etc. The ride was typical XC singletrack, nothing extreme. I will be getting a new bike in about a month so I donít want to upgrade this one.

    So my question is will lubing the stations alleviate the problem? If so what should I lube them with? I know most people donít use (or probably maintain) elastomer forks, but I need to use this bike for a little while longer.


    Thanks,

    -AWD_Tiger

    It works, Mine doesn't squeak much at all, if any, and it hasn't gone out on me, and It seems I'm a bit rough on bikes.
