- Fox Float 34's vs Revelation RCT3's – which are better to live with?
Hehe, thanks for that! Looks like they’ve also been ‘murdered’. Do they use larger dia stanchions?
Not sure when they’ll be available? Ideally, I’m going to be wanting the forks in a couple of weeks time.
Another option just been lofted in my direction is a BOS Deville 140…. A quick search on here suggests a wide range of opinion as to their reliability, anyone have anything to add on that?Posted 4 years agoYetimanMember
I do like the stiffness of my 29er 140mm 34 Floats. They definitely track better than 29er 32’s, and although I haven’t any experience of 29er (or 650b ) Revs, my 150mm 26er Revelations were a bit flexy when pushing on through steep techy stuff. The Blackbox damping was pretty good though.Posted 4 years ago
For XC orientated stuff I would certainly consider the Revs over the Foxes from a weight point of view. Plus the Fox CTD damping appears to be lacking a certain ‘something’. I’ve been playing around with mine for ages and I’ve yet to find the sweetspot.
As header, looking for your experiences of either or both. For 650b FS and travel recommended for 130 – 140mm.
TFT have said they can reduce travel on the Floats from stock 160 to 140, with a little machining.
I’m not heavy, all up weight with kit circa 11stone, so I’m wondering if the heavier Fox might be overkill as my riding preference is XC and keeping air to a minimum.
Which are easier for rider servicing? Please tell me about how you find their feel in terms of suppleness, brake dive, steering response.
There’s also the not inconsiderate matter of a few hundred quid price difference!
Your real world views will be much appreciated! Thank you!Posted 4 years ago
Thank you ns, I’m looking to the Revs for quite a few reasons, ease to set up and dial in, flex will occur with riding hard but sometimes that helps, lighter, cheaper.
What German sites would be worth checking for stock? There are none left in the UK and won’t be till end of June…

no idea how easy it is to slip off the lowers on the RS as the bolts are really recessed……………????
I had some 26″ Rebas of the same design and it was dead easy if you’ve got the right tools. You need a socket wrench, 5mm hex key and an extender to give you the reach and then a deep reach socket will do for the other side.Posted 4 years agobutterbeanMember
BOS Deville every time! Their performance is truly sublime and you only need to look at the machining and tolerances to realise how well they’re made.
If they are made so well, why is the warranty return rates just as high as any other fork.
Surf Sales are in full BOS experience mode now. Nearly 5 months in and they still can’t do any work on forks because BOS can’t be bothered to sent them parts.
Buy from a brand with good support so you can get the forks fixed & serviced easily.Posted 4 years agoFrankersMember

Frankers, is there an online guide ?
What side is the socket and Allen key and what sizes are needed ? Assume 4 or 5mm Allen key ?
Yes loads of guides on line
I think its a 5mm hex key and 10mm socket, but not 100% and not at home at the moment to checkPosted 4 years ago
