    Interesting how OP avoids mentioning these are coil forks

    I haven't tried a new fork in quite a few years, but air forks used to be vastly better than coil. Maybe worth buying if one's fork broke down and he/she needs a cheap replacement.

    Says 'coil' in the description..

    its not just the coil that makes the fork, its the damping, weight, purpose etc
    Cheap forks always were rubbish
    Until a few years ago coil forks were much better for DH, airforks for XC(due to the weight)

    Unpopular opinion here, I haven't serviced my fox shocks for 9 years on my BMC TF01 from 2013, its done thousands of miles, and I give it a hard time off road - still going strong. (stock pic, its in the garage and it's raining)

    Aren't they meant to be serviced every 125 hours of use or yearly or something like that? So many videos online stating the importance of regular servicing of forks. Are you a fair weather cyclist or particularly light, any obvious explanation how you got 9 years out of them without a service?

    The XCR forks of this thread I believe are the best forks from Suntours high volume factory in mainland China I think. Suntours above the XCR I think are made in the high end factory in Taiwan along with the other brand forks they make as a OEM supplier. I can never remember if its Fox or Rockshox but some of those are made by Suntour for them.

    A recent youtube video showed the appalling quality of one of the factories BMC use (despite calling themselves the Bicycle Manufacturing Company they have no factories themselves). Absolutely appalling frame quality and BMC went far too cheap for the factory on this occasion. Pretty much garbage. That's the issue with a brand slap you never know which factory is being used, it's a lottery.

    “These won’t last long” could be accurate

    If nobody buys these they may stop making them which would be awesome.

    Do you service the fox regularly ? If the answer is no , they may feel better although will be much heavier
