Air is always worth it. If people tell you that a spring fork is fine, they’ve never ridden a well tuned air fork.Air or Coil Suspension Fork for 20mph on Road Only e-Commuter ?
Curious in general if its worth going from coil to air on an on road only 20mph e-commuter ?
As I understand it , Air would be lighter , easier to adjust , and ride smoother ?
There is a big difference between AIR suspension used on hybrid/commuter bikes with 65 mm travel compared to 120mm travel suspensions on eMTBs.Air or Coil Suspension Fork for 20mph on Road Only e-Commuter ?
In a previous life, I spent a LOT of times messing with motorcycle, quad, and snowmobile suspensions, to the point I was taking them apart and modifying the internal valving to take care of whatever issue was at hand. Even though there were no bicycles involved, I do have a good idea of what goes on internally with both air and hydraulic systems.... although , I recall riding a Trek SuperCommuter 8 at an e-Bike Expo ; the ride was a bit harsh compared to a similar Haibike Trekking 9.0 that had a suspension fork vs. the Trek's Carbon fork .
