- 140 / 150mm Air forks..
I've seen a few race Maxles around, nothing to worry about there- though they might be OEM spec of course. The new Revelation chassis is a wee bit flexier than my old maxle Rev was (less Pikey) so probably the maxle is worthwhile, if your wheels are compatible it makes sense anyway. Damn good forks though. Mine have the blackbox but there's nothing wrong with motion control.Posted 7 years ago
I've seen these: http://www.merlincycles.co.uk/marzocchi-and-rockshox-suspension-forks/rockshox-suspension-forks/rockshox-revelation-race-dual-air-maxle-lite.html yet being unable to find race version revelations with maxle anywhere else i'm a little suspicious.
I can get a 2010 QR Revelation Race Dual Air 2010 for £285 in which case will i feel that much difference between maxle and qr? i currently have some pikes which are maxle but they're oversprung so i haven't seen any of this "tracking through rocky lines better" yet.
Lastly, are there any other 140mm (ish) forks i should be looking at?Posted 7 years ago
I dont know Duncan, but I wouldnt be surprised at all if they didnt. Merlin are registered as a bike manufacturer and get the parts like forks in direct from the manufacturers as OEM parts with no retail packaging. So you most probably wont get the all travel spacers that would be supplied with an aftermarket set in a nice retail box that just cost you another few hundred pounds for the pleasure.
I'd wager that if you contact Merlin though about the sale of a set, you could persuade them to chuck a few in that they may have lying around the workshop.Posted 7 years agoTerry TibbsMember
I got the XX revs from CRC for £500 they are great, the lock out is good, but if I had seen these I would have got them and pocketed the cash (spent the cash elsewhere?) They are really plush and they dont wander like QR forks do, this is really noticeable at pumpy trail centres like Afan wot I rode at the weekend well worth it, Fox have some serious competition here especially at half the price.Posted 7 years agosquizardoMember

bargain! Not sure what to do with the free headset! there will be a glut on ebay soon!
Cant wait to try them out.. have heard very good reports from friends using them.. and had one offer to swap them for a pair of talas forks!soobaliasMember
scruff, yeah its effectively off.
as i didnt want to use the poploc, i used a short length of gear cable to adjust the compression an leave it set, then adjusted the floodgate…
now just ride it without, its fine, i occassionally think that a bit more compression would be nice – usually on a road hill, offroad it doesnt bother me in the slightest.Posted 7 years ago
