Recently acquired a FSR (98/99) Ground control frame.

Which fork to go for ? was looking at SR Suntour XCR Lo - will it be ok?

Doing the bike up on the budget - would love to have Rock Shox or Fox but they are £££

Keep your eyes on ebay and for a set of Manitou Triple Clamp X-Vert. good value and great fork for the FSR, Cheaper than RS Junior T's.

Here is my FSR Extreme currently being built up.

:D

Look good - have they got front disc mount ? I'm swapping bit from my old broken hard tail MTB over to FSR.

Was thinking of this - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SR-SUNTOUR-XC ... 1347152339

They do have a disc mount, to be honest FSR's will accomodate a selection of forks as you can see from this thread, however they seem to be better with a longer forks, like Triple Clamp RS or Manitou etc, but I see no reason why you cant go down another route, I did try a set of RST's on my FSR but wasnt happy as the front end seemed to sit very low, the position and handling now seems more comfortable, It does come down to personal choice so what may be good for me may not be good for you.

Look forward to hearing how you get on with your search :)

I may be wrong - triple clamp more suited to D/H ride ? As I normally ride at Cannock Chase (and Sherwood Pines) and want the bike to be good at all rounder i.e. climbing and decent.

Would be difficult to say as I never rode FSR !

the clearance between that front wheel and the down tube is just ridiculous.
