    Where does the Suntour XCE fit in the hierchy of Suntour suspension forks?
    Nothing is coming up on the web searches.
    Low end is XCT then its XCM then XCR is the "Higher" end still not that great XCR, but better then XCT.

    I'd go with Merida Big Seven 20MD 2020 because it has XCM, thats only if XCE is at the same level as XCT. Plus you get an extra speed in the back.
