New Bike Pic
I had a fairly big operation late last year and promised myself a new bike when I got out of hospital.
Finally managed to build it up and here it is on its maiden voyage last Thursday.
After years on a hardtail it was so different. Came back though with a big grin on my face and still smiling about it.
Extra points for guessing the trail and view (should be easy).

Cheers gizzardman. I’m still expeimenting with setings, but to be honest it seemed spot on first time I used it.
Actually you all may know what PSI I should be using in the front. They are FOX 32 140 RLC 15mm. I’m 16 stone fully laden with bike kit. Fox reccomend about 100-115psi but this seems a little stiff even though the sag measures correctly. Maybe I’ve been running my Revs on my other bike a little soft.Posted 8 years ago
Just got the same forks on my 07! I can’t believ how much stiffer they are. I had some Revs on before (std 9mm QR) and when ever i took a corner at speed i thought the tyre was squirming. After using these forks for a few hours i now realise it was the forks twisting. The damping’s in adifferent league too. The reason i mentioned the rear shock was because i could never get mine sorted. I’ve checkedc all lot of forums and the general opinion is that the high compression RP23 isn’t good with the 575. Seems luck of the draw whether you end up with Med. or High though. Some 07 came with both, not sure on the 08’s?Posted 8 years ago
Yes the lateral stiffness is amazing. I can physically twist the normal QR forks when at rest. Especially noticable at slower technical speeds. I put this down to my size and weight though and just got on with it. With the new 15mm (or traditional 20mm I guess) its a different story and for the first time felt the fork matched my size.Posted 8 years ago
