I was wondering if you knew if the Diamondback line (27.5) would fit the SR Suntour raidon, I was looking to upgrade to an air fork. Please ask questions if I didn't get enough information.:)

You need to determine which headset is on your bike. Is it a straight 1.125", or a 1.5" to 1.125" tapered? This assumes it's threadless.

Fork offset?

Brake type: disk, V, cantilever?

Axle type in hub? 9mm QR or 15mm or 15mm boost or?

Gather all that info and start looking. If you don't know, post pictures of what you have.

Using the links you provided, it appears the fork on eBay is tapered, the bike is not. Also, the fork is boost. Not sure the bike is.

Assuming that's not a counterfeit China fork, that's a really good deal on an air fork.

Regarding the REI website, the OP really needs to check the bike. This week (Monday) I bought a co-op DRT 1.2 to replace my 25 year old Klein, the REI website says the DRT 1.2 comes with Altus components, but the bikes actually had Deore / Acera components.

I need to go measure my own hubs because if my bike is actually a 15mm boost, I may buy one of those air forks.
