29er suspension fork advice/recommendations please
Ahem: http://www.singletrackworld.com/forum/topic/fs-29er-suspension-fork-in-excellent-condition-silly-cheap (review in the linked thread)
And having swapped to Rebas (for mainly vanity reasons) I have to say that there’s little performance difference if anyPosted 7 years agomuchbettertomMember
I run some manitou minute 29ers – 80mm. they’r really light, and i’ve found them nice and reliable. slightly divey, but i can live with that. I also run some 120mm 26″ minuted, bolt thru, which are also fantastic. unfortunately the bolt thru system i a pain in the backside when compared to maxle etc. however, i belive a new design is being bought in for 2011?
for the 80mm 29ers, QR should be fine, but i’d probably look at bolt thru for 100mm, as they aren’t the most stiff thing ever. great forks though.Posted 7 years agorentsMembercx_monkeySubscriber
Muchbettertom – you need to get yourself a slightly heavier negative spring/’ride kit’ I think – those Minute 29ers are air/coil hybrid – you can’t adjust the coil externally, have to replace the spring itself – should give it a better feel. Something like this one, in firm:
Couldn’t see a specific one for your fork, but the Minute and Drake share many parts – give the guys at Hotlines a call and they’d be able to advise I’m sure – 0131 319 1444.Posted 7 years agoBenHouldsworthMember
I’m running rigid carbon at the moment and 99% of the time I’m happy; main reason I fancy some suspension is for the Kielder 100, I rode rigid last year and my upper body was dead after 60 miles.Posted 7 years ago
I tried the big volume front tyre, upper body workouts etc but however you look at it, 100 miles fully rigid is a long way.CheesybeanZSubscriber
