Fork query

    Hi I am thinking of buying the bike below for some light off road cycling

    If I decide to up the intensity/difficulty of my routes would it be possible to swap in a suspension from the fork?

    Would it be better just to go with a suspension fork with a lock-out option, to begin with?

    Personally I'd probably go with the hardtail (front suspension only) option straight up. Really depends on what level of off-roading you might expect to get into. That bike is probably suitable for most fireroads / double track and easier single track like coilte trails. I wouldn't go looking at changing the fork after buying it.

    If you in the Dublin / Wicklow area rent both gravel bikes and hardtails so maybe you can get a better idea for what you want.

    Yes, I was hoping to get a titanium frame, with islets for a rack and a suspension fork but it looks like Planet X doesn't allow this.
