LT Hardtail Fork choice?
Slants have arrived, they look very nice and have a quality feel about them. Certainly look a lot beefier than my Revs so I can see why people are saying they’re a good bit stiffer. Pleasantly surprised that they come in slightly under weight on my scales, 1887g with uncut steerer. I’m really just waiting for the frame now, the suspense is killing me!Posted 4 years ago
I’m also bikeless. Well, I have my Soul but since its cracked at the chainstays and the headtube I might pop to the shops on it at best. Certainly won’t do for my up and coming trip to the Lakes 😕
Not going to go far wrong with a full shimano transmission and brakes. Which did you go for out of interest?Posted 4 years ago
My build is:
16″ Orange Alpine
SLX brakes – Ribble sale
Xt shifters – Ribble sale
Hope pro 2 evo on flow evo
SLX triple – converted to double and e13 bash
XT Cassette and chain – thanks to Ribbles sale
2013 Rockshox Sektor 140mm tapered solo air
Mix of Easton and Truvativ bars stem and seat post.
It was gonna be a build with old parts but the Ribble sale was so good I bought everything new.Posted 4 years ago
Mosey, that should make for a great bike. My similar but slightly different build:
18″ White AlpinePosted 4 years ago
Hope pro 2 evo on flow EX
M660 SLX double, hope bash, blackspire stinger.
XT Cassette, KMC chain
Easton havoc carbon bars and haven alu seat post (until I can get some money together for a dropper!)kudos100Member
Ran 36’s on my sov for a bit when the seal popped on my revelations.
Felt like a bag of shite at 160mm, much better at 130mm. The difference in weight was noticeable.
Much better when I put the revs back on it.
The advantages of having a big fork are typically lost on a hardtail. Stick to something less beefy and the bike will be more balanced and fun to ride.Posted 4 years ago
