    Like most of the fork manufacturers, Suntour does everything from really low end forks to some serious competition forks.

    Whether their competition forks are a match for the big names is a different debate. But they do exist.

    The problem is that only the budget forks show up on bikes in the US. I think part of that is that Fox and RockShox are smart enough not to offer a product that low on the totem pole. It would dilute their brand image too much. Although some of the old RS forks make me wonder how front suspension took off. Maybe 'cuz they paid people to use them?

    I'm curious enough that if it didn't cost me anything, I'd at least try some of the high-end Suntour stuff.

    But let's keep it linear: So the sum total (E) of all possible bikes: (E) 3*(N+1)

    Where 3 is the minimum needed quantity, and N can be any non-negative number.

    Don't continue a discussion on your thread that's developed a little differently from your original question, start a new thread. Preferably in another forum. Ask everyone on the old thread to follow you to the new thread.

    Want to get answers fast?

    Make sure to cross-post.

    Cyclocross questions?

    Be sure to post to both the MTBR forum and the RBR forum.

    Been riding and working on your bikes for a few years, with a specific question about a minor distinction in two cross-compatible maintenance parts?

    Yeah. Beginners' Corner is definitely the right place to post it.

    As always wise words.

    The Suntour rep posted this reply to a thread. Got me thinking.

    Why don't you offer to do a review of a higher end fork for them?

    I mean Andrew not Bad Cat BTW.

    maybe
    Number of bikes needed E = N + 1 where N is the current number of bikes owned and N > = 2

    you sure about that? RS and Marz offers plenty of entry level crap on stock bikes. Fox not so much...but they have to maintain their image that their forks are somehow worth $500 more than the competition...
