Ogre with Suspension forks

Ogre with Suspension forks

Postby lcfc » Wed Aug 21, 2013 9:42 am

Hi All,

Just looking at getting a bike for some touring, have to say I'm leaning towards the Ogre but open to suggestions.

The reasons are down to the sort of riding I would do, the Munda Biddi trail and Myanmar for starters. Having talked to someone who has cycled around Myanmar they have recommended suspension forks due to the road quality or lack off.

What are peoples thoughts on the Ogre, (I've read a few of the others posts) are the straight forks ok for off road and has anyone setup an Ogre with suspension forks?

Thanks

Gary

This is one reason why I'm looking at the Surly Moonlander. It doesn't need suspension due to massively fat tyres. It also has front and rear pannier mounts and you can get mudguards for it as well.

That would be very comfy with those tyres. Bit too big for me, looking at narrow MTB tyres, 2.1. I don't mind not having front panniers as it will force me to travel light with rears and a frame bag.

Cheers
