Hello all ! I recently got my Stromer ST1X and I love it ! I would like to know if there are any options for a front fork suspension ? I cant seem to find any Stromer brand front suspension forks anywhere ! Does anyone know of other options ? or perhaps where I can order some Stromer brand Suspension forks ? Thanks!

Thanks for the suggestion. I'm having a hard time finding the specs on my ST1X. As far as measurements of what will fit.

If epixon fits then I would expect raidon,xcr, or similar fox rockshox offerings to fit too. Is that right @bluecat ? It seems the front fork has quite a standard geometry and the headset is tapered.

Wish it would take 27.5 front 26 rear which will make it closer to the newer offerings (sure the geometry will change but still I think 27.5 front suspension/wheel can bring a lot to this bike).

While it is possible to use RockShox or Suntour, it has to be done by someone who knows the subtle differences because the head tube of ST2 has wires running but that is not the case with ST1-X.

Read this https://blog.newwheel.net/post/139502750525/stromer-st2-front-suspension
and
Call these folks and they will help you out.

You should be able to use off-shelf Suntour with 100mm travel but you need to check the offset before attempting the install.

I am a little confused when you say it is not the case with st1x, so is it easier or impossiple with st1x?

Thanks ! I am waiting on a response from Newwheel. The Stromer parts store has the ST1X front suspension fork with fender for $699. I'm wondering if just ordering THIS is my best option.

ST2 has some wires for the USB and U-daytime light and few of my friends had trouble getting the RockShox to fit in perfectly.
ST1-X has no USB, hence it should be easier.

Is it just a 1.5"to 1-1/8" Tapered steering tube?
Yes it is and it is a 100mm travel fork with the right amount of offset.
Typically, this spare parts kit contains all the small parts that are needed for installation.
  1. Tektro/Magura disk brake adapter, conical washer
  2. FSA crown race, top cap set & spacer
  3. Stromer fender kit for suspension forks
