Hi folks, I've just joined the forum as I'm seriously thinking of buying a Crossrunner. I'd be interested in the good and bad from current owners who know this bike. Also, any strong feelings about fitting an Akrapovic slip-on can? (The bike I'm looking at doesn't have the original can but a rather ratty looking after market one which I'd rather replace).

Cheers... Steve

Hi Steve and welcome.
The Crossrunner is a fantastic real world rosd bike that is day long comfortable.
I have suffered from a harsh ride at the front - now hopefully sorted but this isn't the norm. Still love it though ;)

Thanks Phil. I've gone ahead and bought one second hand. Should get it next week. How was the front end sorted on yours?

After repeated stripdowns, the only thing causing any stiction whatsoever was the fork seals.

I removed the upper seal 'grip spring' and put it in the lower springs position.

The top spring is much weaker than the lower one.

Still under trial, if/when I am satisfied that I have cured the harshness, I'll post a 'how to' in the relevant thread.

I'm still unsure as to why mine rides so harshly compared to others....

Phil
