    Luna Cycles Lander Suspension Fork

    This should be in the reviews, but there are none... SO Questions:
    Do you own it?
    Would you consider it?
    If you own it:
    How many miles is on it?
    What type of riding do you do?
    How is it holding up?
    Do you like it?

    These are the same folks that have a Bluto knock off with a carbon crown and steerer.
    At the Euro show a few years ago....they had a table set up with a set of these.
    The cheaper alloy version had a 1 1/8 to 1 1/2 steerer pressed into the crown's 1 1/8 hole....meaning the wrong steerer was pressed in backwards ( and impossible to use!)

    No information on the damping or cut-aways showing it, most likely crap that will work worse the faster you go.

    Looks better than the $99 china special with no dampers, Suntour internals. Straight steerer for those that need it and probably fine for the cruiser style fat e-bikes it is intended for.
    No-thru axle means it is useless for any semi-agressive riding. I will wait for a good deal on a complete bike with a Mastadon, "buy once cry once" and I want to run 2xl tread in the future.

    Buy once, cry once is a good way to look at it. That's what I will do, too. Usually the low end forks are coils, so I was curious if anyone had actually tried one of these. Every once in a while something inexpensive is not a piece of crap. So I figured I would inquire. I love my fat bike but with a straight head tube on my frame there are not a lot of options for suspension.

    "32mm stanchions for firm feel when riding trail"

    Well, i guess this fork's not quite noodly - sorta more al dente?

    Lefty will work far better if you're looking for performance options with a straight steerer.

    More than 2 bills though....

    Bump...anyone had one of these for awhile? Looking at tossing one on a pugs, and it ticks a lot of boxes right out of the gate - QR, 135 spacing, straight steerer.

    I got the whole bike for $500, so I'm not spending $800+ to get a lefty, plus have a separate hub. Mastodon looks like it'll hit the frame, and Bluto doesn't do straight steerer.

    Thanks

    Why would you put one of those forks on a nice bike like a Pugsley?

    The Lefty is tried and true for your application.

    Well, if adding a 6 pound pile of junk onto the front of what is a great bike (especially for what you paid for it) is worth it, cool beans.
