Area 13 - Electric Bikes that are out of this world.

Suspension Forks & More | EP 30

Posted by on

Hey, everybody! Welcome back to the Bolton EBikes podcast. I'm Kyle, the owner of Bolton Ebikes and I just love putting these podcast episodes out because it's a place where you can learn more about electric bikes and we invite industry experts. 

So today, I'm going to tell you about suspension forks. There are things about suspension forks that we get asked often. 

What types of forks and how are they installed? 

So if you know nothing about suspension forks and you're considering one for your electric bike, by the end of this, you're going to have a much better understanding of how they work, what's required to put one on and if you even need one, so let's get into another episode of the Bolton EBikes podcast.

In this episode, you’ll get answers to questions and topics like: 

  • Do you even need a suspension fork?
  • Do professional cyclists use suspension forks?
  • Isn’t it enough to have fat tires to absorb the impact of bumps in the road? Do I need a suspension fork too?
  • Can you put a suspension fork on a front hub motor?
  • What’s the benefit between full suspension and just front suspension?
  • What size of fork is best for your bike?
  • The difference between the tapered tube and the straight tube and why that matters for your bike.
  • And so much more! 

 I do love those five-star reviews on the podcast and as well as the website and everything else is going on. If you are new to the podcast for some reason, and you just stumbled upon it, make sure to go to That's an email list where we'll send you an update when new episodes come out, which is every Tuesday, and we'll send you a special link to listen in.

We often give away bikes and I share when those happen each and every time because I like to give away as many bikes as we can, even though this year, it's really hard to get our hands on ebikes. We're still trying to make those happen as often as we can. I'm Kyle owner of Bolton Ebikes, and I hope you come back again next Tuesday to listen in.

  • Once again good information. Nice job. Answered some questions I had. I am looking to purchase a folding bike and if a suspension fork isn’t the way to go, I wonder if a suspension seatpost is worth the money or the fat tires good enough.

  • This podcast was a little above my pay grade. So the only comment I can make is “what the fork”

  • Would your 20 inch fit the e-trike you sell?
