    suspension fat bike fork on LunaCycle

    Does anyone have experience with this fork? I'm looking for a suspension fork for the Gravity Bullseye Monster. Not a whole lot of choices. I'd like to stay with the 135mm front hub. The RST Renegade uses a 150mm front hub.

        I have never tested this fork. Hopefully somebody who has will weigh in.

          That's the one. They are back in stock. I'd be interested for street use.

              I have that fork on a Mongoose fatty. I have had no problems with it. For street use and cruising it is a great upgrade. Don't expect it to be as plush as the higher end forks. It will definitely smooth out your ride. Have ridden it through some fields with no issue. Forrest trails have been fun. Would not use this as a downhill fork or any other extreme usage. For the money, it is a great upgrade. If you are a weight weanie, this is not for you. There is also this fork, an air fork. Not for extreme use. Appears to be well made. Have it, just haven't installed it on any thing yet. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Snow-beach-a...MAAOSwawpXt8Bi

                Harold calfee20 is correct. most of those cheap ones are 1/1/8 straight steerers. Making something for the cheap fatties like i have.

                    I"m using that fork right now. I've only had it on for a week, but I've learned a few things. The springs are real soft. I had to screw in the preload, (left knob), adjuster several turns to take up the slack. I bought it from Luna, and I'm glad to have it. It even has IS, (International Standard), disk brake mounts. Much better than the 1st fork I bought off ebay. I learned an important lesson. Find out what the spec's are before buying. It was 150mm OLD, (Over Locknut Dimension). My front hub is 135mm. The absolutely worst part was that the brake mount was a Post mount. No room for a spacer, and no adapters worth a &*%#. I wasn't going to slide a shim on the right side and retorque the spokes to "dish" the wheel back to center. Lesson learned, I DO NOT BUY ANYTHING WITH POST MOUNTS FOR THE BRAKES ANYMORE! I will only buy frames and forks with IS, (International Standard) disk brake mounts. I can extend an IS mount out to go from a 135mm OLD hub to a 150mm OLD fork, or a 170mm OLD rear hub to a 197mm OLD frame. IS mounts allow the use of spacers, post mounts are just ###$%^&*.

                      Thanks for the information. I think the RST Renegade would be the way to go. I was wondering if I could machine a spacer so I could retain the 135mm wheel.

                        The RST in that listing is 135mm OLD.You wouldn't need any spacers, but if the brakes don't line up right you're screwed. Because it's a Post type disk brake mount, instead of an IS mount, and I HATE Post type brake mounts. Plus, if you buy that from ebay, you're not going to have a warranty like you'd have with Luna

                          I was looking at the new fat bike rst with the 150 mm spacing.

                            For the same price you could have a serious, downhill, fat bike suspension. http://www.ebay.com/itm/fat-fork-sno...DhrBnlXz6U9T1g It also has the IS disk brake mounts, so disk brake spacing is not an issue. I didn't even know Zoom made a triple tree downhill fork with fat bike spacing. I'd buy it right now if I had the money.
