    Had my Hardrock Sport Disc for 5 weeks.

    Went off road today for just the 4th time and therefore switched my suspension on.

    Halfway through the ride there was a tarmac section so I went to lock it out and my Suntour forks have broken.

    I can no longer lock them out.

    This is not what I would expect after 5 weeks of ownership.

    Does anyone have any experience with SR Suntour parts/warranties/replacements etc?

    Will this be an issue for Suntour or Specialized?

    Take it back where you got it from I think it is down to them to sort it out as they were the retailer.

    It’s going back in 2 weeks for a service anyway. I’ll let them deal with it then.

    I would take it back straight away or at least phone / email them so they are aware it is broken.

    Don’t worry Dagz, I’ll be on the phone to JE James tomorrow.

    Don’t let the seller give you any old ‘we’ll send it back to the manufacturer’ boIIocks. 5 weeks is a very short time and they’re obviously faulty. Insist on replacement or full refund; your choice.
