That is fantastic ... if I had an 'ideal' route/surface, what you have available is as close to it as I could imagine. A bit envious!

Trek Dual Sport 4 (2019)

Hello,
I'm new here and I need your help. I'm waiting for a new bike, but still don't know what model of fork is fitted. Could anybody can tell me what I can expect in ds4?
Thank you,
Irek.

Welcome, Irek. As noted on Trek's website, the DS4 comes with an SR Suntour NRX fork with remote lockout and 63mm of travel.

Thank you, but info on the web is not really exact. I don't know if this is fork with oil or air.

From Trek's website: "SR Suntour NRX, ATB rated, coil spring, preload, hydraulic remote lockout, 63mm travel". So, hydraulic (oil) damping/lock out; coil spring (not air).

Yes you right about specification on the Trek web but on the suntour page I have not found the NRX oil fork. All NRX are air and that's why I'm confused.

Details - SR SUNTOUR Cycling

The line "Left side" means that the left side (leg) contains either an air spring or a coil spring w/preload adjust. The right side (leg) contains Suntour's hydraulic damping/rebound cartridge.

Trek has specc'd the coil spring version of this fork for the 2019 DS4.

Sorry, best I can do. Link above works perfectly for me -- goes straight to Suntour's 2019 spec sheet for the NRX model.

The link works for me as well. The full URL is:

[url]http://www.srsuntour-cycling.com/components/fork/NRX-D-5895.html[url]

Edit: the forum software recognizes the URL and won't seem to let me paste it in full without converting it to a link. Copy and paste the text between the two [url] flags and it should work.

@badger1
I found this catalogue for 2019 and you 100% right
There are 2 forks disc NRX for trekking bikes

NRX-D-COIL RL DS 700C

They looks like good forks
Any users have any experience with DS4 ?
Any review about fork work culture

My 2016 fork is a bit pony to be honest, it’s 2 years old and I’m not sure how hard it’s been riden but, I have excessive play in the fork, the travel is notchy and no LBS can service them. I’m looking to upgrade to Rockshox paragon disc shocks in the new year.

Pulled the trigger on the Schwalbe Hurricane 29 x 2.0. I'm going to find out if they fit 😏

I hope they do; they're nice tires. I've got my Schwalbe Little Big Bens (40mm) back on my Roam due to the fenders I installed, and the Hurricane has a quieter roll (dead silent, in fact) due to the completely solid center rib. The Little Big Bens are certainly smooth tires, but they have a punctuated center tread section, so they produce a tiny bit of a buzz feel and noise.

Hi,
I'm after few ride and I have to tighten fork srew to maximum and now feels much better. Before was to soft, I'm very interested how much better is rock shock paragon air fork.
Also I think about second set of the tyres for off-road track's but I'm afraid what size will be the best. Needs some gap between frame and tyres for mud moving.

​​​​​​​Happy New Year !

The Schwalbe Hurricane tires finally arrived after dark today Only had time to get one on as it's getting time for me to head to bed. Anyway they are the 29 x 2.0s, got the front changed out with no trouble nice fit actually. There's plenty of room on the sides and the top of the fork With some quick measurements the back is going to fit just fine also Don't know what I was thinking when I ordered them, thought they were going to only be 50 mm wide, they measure 57 mm at the widest with 48 psi of air.

​​​​​​​ Happy New Year to all. Jerry

Happy new year, Jerry, and I'm glad to hear those tires will work on your bike. 57mm definitely sounds wide for those tires -- what is the width of your rims? My rims have a 19mm internal width and mine were about 48mm wide at the casing itself (not measuring at the side lugs), and about 51mm total width at the widest point of the side lug. They are marked 50-622 (meaning 50mm wide) and Schwalbes are usually pretty close to size...57mm is wider than I would expect for those.

I stand corrected I confused myself converting inches to mm. They're just under two inches at the lugs. For some reason I thought two inches was 58mm. The rims are 17 mm internal..... I think 😏
