- Fox Forks alternative??
Dare l ask if there’s such a thing as a credible alternative to the default option Fox fork?
I’m after a replacement for my dodgy 2yr old Rock Shox Tora 302s on my Orange P7. I wanted something basic but capable and something like 32mm Fox Vanillas would havd been great. The Vanillas are no longer available and l can’t for the life of me fathom the Rock Shox, etc ranges! This leaves me looking for alternatives and i’m after your recommendations for anything with 120-140mm travel and is a good all-rounder, i.e. is lightish, but can take knocks resulting from my lack of finesse on the trails. Oh, and there they’re black then even better 😉
So, what can you tell me??Posted 6 years agorobsoctaneMember
as far as Fox servicing goes, here’s a trick – buy enduro upgrade seals & you’ll not need to touch them for around a year or so. I’ve got them on my talas’s & they’re well worth £25. THE best upgrade per buck for Fox forks. They come in matching blue too so they look well trick, if that’s your thing…

I love my Revs, 140 dual air is so adjustable; but only if you you want to. It’s like having 3-4 different forks, especially if you get U-turns.
They come up on the classifieds a fair bit too, take a peek at the steerer internal diameter from beneath if you get a chance. Pinky snug at the crown!Posted 6 years agochiefgrooveguruMember
Rich, I was looking at the coil U-turn Sektors until I happened upon some cheap Fox Floats. However, despite the apparently complexity of the dual air Rockshox forks, they’re set and forget, so don’t let that put you off. I had the same confusion with the Rockshox range, it’s ridiculously overcomplicated!Posted 6 years ago
