    Giant Roam XR1 Suntour Suspension Fork

    Hi Guys,

    I have a Giant Roam XR1 Hybrid bike that i use to go to the work. I change almost everything and now the bike is awesome, i love it!! ...But, i hate the Suntour suspension fork that came with the bike. The problem is that there is no a single "good" suspension fork for a 700c bike and the sustour is a piece of crap. It weights more than 4 pounds and it's so bad that i'm looking for a radical change, like the carbon rigid 29" fork from Niner...what do you think?? it comes with pm disc mount, so i can mount my new shimano's xt

    Do you know another solution or alternative?? maybe a less expensive one

    Good question. I'm pondering buying a Roam XR1, something a little more aggressive than my Giant FCR3700 hybrid, but am concerned about the performance and weight of the Suntour NCX-D front forks.
