RC will be a standard, no closed damper like the RCT3 Charger damper (which is simialr to the fox FIT dampers)
So damping will not be anywhere near as good.
arse, this 650b switch over is a real PITA !
ive got marzocchi rc3Tis at the moment and ill miss them!Posted 4 years agostimMember
I rode mine for the first time at the weekend after having to stare at them for a month due to a broken finger. I rode on a whole variety of tracks in Port Du Soleil and, to be brief, they are superb. Super smooth and plush and with plenty of support and a good range of adjustability.
I’m very happy with mine, I think they’ll be a big seller.Posted 4 years ago
As above, though this might be of interest, they’re pretty nice, these are a set of 650b ( 😳 ) soloair 160mm RCT3 for reference:
Open, threshold and ‘lockout’ (which is really a very heavy low speed comp circuit so they do move under heavy compression) and low speed compression adjustment which works in the open setting only.Posted 4 years ago
Initial tests suggest these are going to ride superbly as very smooth and the adjusters actually make a difference.
These are the only set I have got sent through with the rest due next month, so a bit of a wait.
All ours come from Fishers, these were on the first delivery, however the other ones we had on order (ordered April/May) have been pushed till the end of August so think less arrived in UK than originally expected. Think the other guys are abroud maybe.Posted 4 years ago
I’m guessing travel can be reduced by air spring replacement ala the 2013 onwards solo air revs, as mentioned no parts or list available yet.
Haven’t opened these up yet as busy with work, but will post some more pics and info when I do 😀RicBSubscriber
26″ Axle to crown apparently 532mm for 150mm travel, or 542mm for the 160mm travel.
Which, annoyingly, is 32mm longer than my old 140mm vanillas for only 10mm more travel! Even stepped down to 140mm they’ll be 22mm longer, which probably equates to 1 degree slacker.Posted 4 years ago
