    Can you out a suspension fork on an Outcast?

    I tried to put a Tora 318 on my Outcast and simply could not get it seated with the stock headset. I didn't want to try to remove it and replace it with another headset if it's not going to work. Anyone running the Outcast ss with a suspension fork?

    Outcast 29

    I was wondering the same thing. I have been riding this bike for the last month here in N.E. because of all the rain. Let me tell you I really enjoy it but my wrists can't take too many more of these rigid rides. I am scanning the web for a good deal on a fork but want to make sure it is do-able first. I don't see a reason you can't unless the geometry isn't right for a squishy fork.

    Those Alex rims are sweet I am 6'6 265 and they have held true no matter what I throw at them. For a back up bike it's nice I have a total of 450.00 invested in it. It's better than beating my Dos Niner up in this slick S%$#. I do miss disc brakes though. Good luck.

    You ought to be able to change the fork out. Go ahead and replace the headset as well. The stock HS leaves a lot to be desired. I have plans to overhaul mine ASAC (convenient). Like others, my Moto is my mid-day greenway bike so I am not spending any more money on it than necessary. Although I did replace the stem and handle bars like everyone else. Still its a cool bike and I am enjoying it and my lunch time rides everyday.

    Baja and Pitch have both put a Reba fork on their Outcast frames with good results. Go for it and have fun!
