I recently located this SR SunTour service manual, containing schematics of a load of forks. Trouble is, my fork only has "XCR" on a sticker, and production date stamped.
At some forum this is discussed and links are provided to SunTour's XCM, XCR and XCR product lines. Strangely, my XCR does not match visually any of the presented (mine has no V-brake option).
Am I supposed to find a model number stamped somewhere on the fork, as with most other bicycle components, or should I deduce which fork it is from the features e.g. wheel size, brake options, outlook, locking and adjustment mechanisms.
I would be quite surprised if the model is not stamped. How do bicycle mechanics deduce the model - do they know them all from experience?
