How often do you use suspension fork lockout?
#1
I recently did my whole commute without switching on the suspension fork lockout - forgot that it even exists. Made me think about how other MTB riders use lockout functioj. When do you switch it on/off? I have a remote handlebar lockout switch and I find it very handy during performance rides

Hey. I have lockout mostly switched on in the city (especially, when I'm in a hurry), but it depends on the road quality. Some stretches and areas have poor quality roads and there is no other choice but to have the lockout switched off. The handlebar switch is really useful when you're on a training ride or event, I agree Smile Otherwise, I have had lockout without the switch and felt no need to have one when commuting or on a pleasure ride.
