    I have a Scott Voltage 2 and the front fork is a Suntour XCM. I use the bike for light freeriding(5 to 6 feet of air) what is a good way to maintain the fork and keep in in good shape.(my first bike with suspension)

    You're either brave, stupid, or wreckless to do anthing other than XC on that fork. Anything over a 1footer to flat is just plain ludacris unless you want it to snap or blow up in your face.

    I'd say stupid but its lasted at Diablo. So far I havent had any problems getting more than 1 foot of air. Its my first suspended bike so how can I clean it.
