- 29er forks, info please?
Buying some new forks, my Fox are 3 years old now and arguably the steerer is fractionally too short. Fox are the 32’s with lockout on top of fork leg and have been spot on
Plan is to get a set, send mine to moijo for service then eventually use them in a new build
Planet x have some to suit,m tapered and 15mm
But which to pick, or alternatives?Posted 4 years agoAlexSubscriber
if these are of the same quality as the slants, I’d be tempted: http://www.freeborn.co.uk/x-fusion-slide-rlr-fork-2012 problem is QR not 15mm. I have some 2012 dual air reba’s and they’re fine, but don’t feel as plush as I think they should. Decent fork tho and at the planet-x price good value.Posted 4 years agoShackletonSubscriber
FWIW I’ve been very impressed by my 100mm Manitou Tower Pro 15mm QRs. Stiff, simple and impressively plush for a 100mm fork.
I always found Fox forks to be too divey/linear under braking for my liking when set up for bump smoothing, these seem to have more support/progressive without losing small bump sensitivity. Probably something to do with the “helper” small coil spring in the initial phase of the stroke. All discussed here.
Also has better damping and manners than the RockShox motion control I had in my Rebas but not as good as the blackbox MoCo I have on my 150mm Revelations.
Hope that is of some help.Posted 4 years ago
had them for a while the Manitou and still strugle to get it working without diving or being harsh, qr does not feel stiff as maxle okay wheels are hope flows so would think be strudy enough………………
love my fox 36s, maguras durin very stiff d=for 26 120mm qr fork so looking for the magical combo……….am i turning into STW/Hora mindset????/Posted 4 years agoShackletonSubscriber
Forgot to say I’m 14.5 stone stepping out of the shower with the firm spring in the Manitous at 100mm.
Can’t work out if Vondaly is saying that the Manitous or DTs are divey/harsh but I have to say from my experience that my Manitous are neither! And they are as stiff as a very stiff thing with the 15mm QR. Certainly in my non-scientific wiggle the wheel test between your knees all of the flex at the front is in the spokes/rim/big rubbery flexy tyre.Posted 4 years ago
