- Finding out the age of Rockshox forks
I’m guessing cutting the lower leg in half and counting the rings won’t work, so is there a simple way of establishing how old my forks are?
I’ve 2 pairs of revelations, and am pretty sure I know how old one pair is (as I bought them!) The 2nd pair came on a 2nd hand bike I purchased, and I have no idea what kit I need to give them a service.
One set is a “Revelation Team U turn” 120-150mm, which I think is of ’10 vintage:
The other set is labled “426” and measures 140mm:

Cheers, will have a look.
I don’t recall seeing anything on the white forks though (Which I installed)Posted 8 years agonbtMember
I seem to recall a date stamp circle on my revelations, like this
the lower ones look to be around a 2006 vintagePosted 8 years ago
Your second pic – of the black forks look like a pair i have.
They are 2007/2008 Rock Shox Revelation 426’s
I have the dual air version as above but they also came in U-Turn and Air U-Turn. My ones have 130mm travel
 Think you are spot on with 2010 for teh white ones too, pretty sure that was the first year they did the power bulge legs and the stickers on my 2011 ones are totally different [/edit]Posted 8 years ago
That’s great, thanks for all the helpPosted 8 years agoBiscuit PoweredMember
I have some 2006 Revs that look just like your black ones so they are not necessarily 2007/2008s!Posted 8 years ago
more research shows they ran that model for a few years 06,07,08
32mm kit for servicing and guid should be on the sram site.Posted 8 years ago
