Fork musings, Fox 32 29ers and/or…. well.. not sure.
Having the usual winter debate I’ve had now for a while regarding my forks.
They’re a set of Fox32 float from a 2010 Giant XTC29er. Condition is good and all works well, rebound fine, lockout good etc etc.. Couple of lower station marks and a bit of sticker coming off, but pretty good. They’ve got a 267mm steerer and are tapered and 15mm.
So, the question I have is whether to sell them and buy a new set, or get them serviced. Have forks moved on that much in the past few years that a set of Manitou tower pro or a set of 2014 Reba SL’s are now arguably ‘better’ than the Fox’s I have (even if I service them).
The reason I ask is that due to steerer length of 267mm and overall stack height being 271mm i’m completely on the edge of any adjustment and can’t change/spacer it at all. Now, I don’t know if a spacer or two would make the bike better.. or indeed worse…But currently I don’t have the choice/option.
I rekon I could get £150+ for the Foxs ?
Any thought appreciated.Posted 4 years ago
These are the REBA’s i’m watching for later
But there’s plenty of others on Ebay etc.
There’s also a pair of Recons for £150Posted 4 years ago
Much appreciated mate… i’ll pass on them.
Spent the morning swapping my chainring stuff about to run a proper 1×10 setup, so not really looked much into the forks in all honesty. So I’ve removed that pair from my potential list.
Busy now searching to see if Charliethebikemonger has shipped out my small chainring bolts for SatPosted 4 years ago
