- Forks for Turner RFX?
Just got myself a 08 Turner RFX frame and am undecided on what forks to fit. I have a brand new boxed set of RockShox Pike 454 Coil U-Turns in the garage. My original intention was to fit these to a 09 5-spot but the RFX deal was too good to refuse. I’m not sure if the 140mm of travel will do the frame justice and have been looking at 160mm adjustable travel forks (Fox 36 Talas/Rockshox Lyrik/Marzocchi ATA). I want to keep the weight down as much as possible as I like to be able to ride up as well as down.Posted 9 years ago
Anyone with any thoughts?CoastingMember
Ive got a RFX thats built basically from pretty light stuff and im running some Fox 140’s on the front.I use the bike for heavy duty xc type riding,no large drops or uber steap stuff.I find the forks gr8.Keeps the weight down and doesnt do anything strange to the bike.I suspect if u wont to go hardcore something with a little more travel would b advised.Posted 9 years agoGary_CMember
My ’06 RFX is fitted with 36 FLOAT’s most of the time,nice & (relatively) light,plush as owt,& the lack of travel adjustment is forgotten about after a couple of rides.(They replaced a set of Wotan’s which had the travel adjuster).Posted 9 years ago
When I use the bike for a bit more d/h action,a set of Marzocchi 66’s go on,they’re 180mm travel,weigh a ton…but what the heck!!GregBMember
I used a set of Marzocchi Z1 Light ETA on my Six Pack as I didn’t get on with 36s. All down to personal preference though! I found they matched the frame well (150mm travel, same as the rear and were light enough for all-day riding but still stiff enough for DH courses.
(Shameless plug: I’ve actually now got both the frame and the forks for sale if anyone is interested – mail me for details if interested. greg_barton AT btinternet.com)Posted 9 years ago
