Strengths:    Price, durability, and adjustable travel, rebound, & preload.
Great upgrade for old mountain bikes.

Weaknesses:    Weight. My fork has coil spring, V-brake mounts, and steel steerer tube.

Bottom Line:   
Got this fork to replace my old 60mm fork on my 1996 chromoly hardtail GT. This fork’s spring assembly has 3 settings (holes) on the spring rod. Top hole is for 120mm travel, middle for 100mm, and bottom for 80mm. I had it adjusted to 120mm travel at my local bike shop with the stock medium spring.

At first the fork felt a little stiff (I weigh less than 150 lb). After taking small jumps and riding more aggressive, the fork feels good because the stiffness keeps you from bottoming out and gives better feedback on what the front wheel is doing.

My GT headtube angle is now 67 degrees with 120mm travel spring setting, which is similar to today’s all-mountain/enduro bikes. My old bike is now faster and a lot more fun. I liked this fork so much I bought one for my dad's 1999 Specialized FSR.

Upgrading Rock Shox XC 32 TK Coil?

Hello, I am mechanically fairly adept, but new to suspension forks. Got this fork and wanted to check out which coil I had. Took off the preload cap and unscrewed the cover. This exposed the coil and I see that it is red meaning a medium coil. Good enough. Looking at the charts I see that my ... Read More »

Suntour XCT V.4 vs. Rockshox XC 32 TK for 29er

Just getting back into mtnbking after a long hiatus. I recently purchased a Marin Pioneer Trail 29er which came with Suntour XCT shocks. I am wanting to upgrade the forks but not break the bank doing so. Would the Rock Shox XC 32's be an upgrade? I was hoping to stay under $200 but do not want to sp ... Read More »

RockShox XC 32 TK Coil to Solo Air Conversion

I looked at the parts diagram and it looked like a drop in replacement. I purchased the RockShox XC32 Spring Internals Left 26/29 120 Solo Air replacement part, but have encountered an issue with the install. When I install the Solo Air it doesn't fully seat so I can't engage the threads on the top ... Read More »

Recon Silver TK Coil OR XC 32 TK?

Facing a bit of a crossroad with purchasing a new front fork. My existing RS Pilots gave up the ghost on the weekend after landing too heavily on the front of the bike - not a bad run considering their age. Now I am looking at upgrading from that pogo slush feeling to something that performs bett ... Read More »
