That NCX-E has elastomer ("mcu") damping, which is out of question for most people looking for an aftermarket fork.

The NRX-9100 is stock on Scott's hybrid Sportster P1 (www.scottusa.com/product.php?UID=4886), in 60 mm version. I saw it in a bike shop and noticed the big clearance to the 700x35c tires. The earlier NRX-9000 was stock on an 03 Peak MTB, with 29x2.1 tires. The lack of rebound adjustment would probably be one thing that disqualifies it for most off-road riders, and from SR Suntour's own description it doesn't sound like it was designed for MTB:

"NRX - A suspension fork that you can:
- ride to the dinner party in a tuxedo
- commute to work in a suit and tie
- cruise to the city park with the family for a picnic
- and hop on for a long weekend of forest trails."
