      Hello,

      I am new to mtb and just bought my first bike, a Raleigh Talus 4.0. I live in the northern CO front range and have access to good trails. I am 47 and don’t envision anything too extreme but who knows what the future holds. I always rode hybrids on streets and paved trails until my.buddy took me mtb riding on a fire road a few weeks back and I had a blast and I am hooked. My fork question is this: The bike has a Suntour XCT 100mm fork which I know is entry level. I am about 210 lbs (not for long I hope). Any advice on a starting point for setting the fork?

      Thanks for your help and I love the Singletracks site. It’s by far the best I have found.

      Take a look at this thread and download the guide. It is supposedly geared to women, but I thought it looked like a very nice new comers guide. It has a section on fork setup and other useful info.
