- PSA Revelation White 15mm Remote now £270 at Merlin
and possibly around £9 Quidco also so around £261 total delivered.. quite a good price methinks.
Just after i got some delivered, ffs!
BTW ParcelForce are cack, but i won’t go into that here.
Thought someone else might be after a pair 🙂Posted 7 years ago
Presumably clearing 2012 season stock already?
more like +£87 with discounts but yeah, you’d have to be too cool for white (maybe anticipating the next fashion, black forks?)
they come with two spacers btw, for 140 or 130mm.. i guess you can shim even lower if you want a reba that can later be long travel 🙂 (can Loco or someone confirm this is ok?).Posted 7 years ago
Reba RLT is now same price actually http://www.merlincycles.com/bike-shop/frame-forks/forks-shocks/rockshox-suspension-forks/2012-rockshox-reba-rlt-forks-remote-lockout.html
heh i tried, can’t go linking all old Rev threads to this, bit spammy :p
apparently 2013 Revs aren’t coming in for a bit (not sure how long) so this isn’t a clearance as such, they just have too many white ones..
also these ones have serial numbers intact. last pair i bought from merlin years ago had the serial scratched out, bit weird.Posted 7 years ago
write down those numbers boys and girls, if nicked more likely to have fork come up than the frame, going by recent stories..bigjimSubscriber

I think it is because they flog OEM kit rather than aftermarket – I don’t think the RLT are a true aftermarket option, RCT3 only is, but could be wrong.Posted 7 years ago
yeah, they’re OE, warranty would be with Merlin not SRAM. no reason to doubt Merlin would honour this though?
converting to crown – just take the spring out of the damper and find some way to turn the top? or there are kits but i hate the price of those knobs.
off to buy some helitape for the legs.. those lovely, white, glossy legs mmm.Posted 7 years agocrashtestmonkeyMember
Bland- I’ve used topcashback in the past, I’m still waiting for £12 after spending nearly £500 at CRC…not worth the hassle in my opinion!!
patience young padowan. It can take months for it to filter thru to payment but it does come through. I’ve had >£60 back this year (a mixture of lots of money spent at CRC, merlin, wiggle etc and referral fees which have occasionally been £10 a go). Its hardly a hassle!Posted 7 years ago
i think Quidco is worth it for bigger purchases like this, if it tracks it pays out eventually (set your min payout to something sensible like £10 so you don’t lose it all in paypal fees). TCB is another newer one with very slightly better rates.
not much discussion on the fork then, they’re just the Best a man can get? 🙂
I’ve never had to deal with Merlin for warranty, what are they like?
@proberts, this is 2012 with new damper and rebound, reviews are great. how much did you pay for your RCT3 then, best price in UK i could see was about £450, not worth £180 more than this for most people.. spend the money saved on a new front wheel and have money left over 🙂Posted 7 years agoRich_sSubscriber
Hmmmm, quite tempted by either the Rebas or the Revs. The quoted weights are v close between the 2 – has anyone got any insights into their actual weights?
Will be replacing a pair of Pike u-turn airs which are hefty blighters so I’m not that concerned, but it’d be nice to know what they actually were…Posted 7 years agohonourablegeorgeMember

just weighed mine (Rev RLT): 1696g without maxle or remote, uncut
can anyone confirm if its ok to shim further than 130, presumably you gets lots of thread sticking out bottom of air side, but that’s ok? at what point does the damper hit something?
130 is the limit, as far as I knowPosted 7 years agothekingisdeadMember
Cheers for the PSA, I’m about to pull the trigger on a set, but before I do:
These will go on my Cotic, and when I last bothered to keep an eye on the latest kit (a good few years ago) I was gonna fit a 100-130 ml adjustable fork, to get the best out the frame. I’m guessing that the way things have gone with lightweight long travel in the last few years, no one is really doing adjustable forks in this travel range? Is this the case?Posted 7 years ago
I’ve read you can take them down lower, think it was Cy from cotic posting on here. It’d just mean sourcing some more spacers. Having had mine apart I can’t see a reason why not.
One of the experts will confirm I’m sure.
When I bought mine my internal justification went like this;
I can run them at 130.
They have a 15mm maxle.
If I change frame I have the option to drop or extend them.
I can run a massive tyres if I want.
I can service them myself with relative easy.
If I get the itch for better damping, I can upgrade the damping circuit.
Doubt I’ll notice the weight difference between these and reba’s.
Just my 2c.Posted 7 years ago
^ swingbing pretty much my reasoning there too.. it’s just that 150 could do crazy things to handling, on any of my bikes. i’ll find out soon 🙂
thekingisdead, there’s a dual travel or whatever they call it option (lever changes between 150 and 120 i think for climbing), but not at this price, and reviews seem to be reliability is a problem and not to bother.Posted 7 years ago
I posted this on another thread but got no response so thought I’d try here instead!
I’ve just ordered a set of the Revelation RLT’s from Merlin and can’t decide which bike to fit them to!
I’ve currently got a 2011 Stumpjumper FSR Comp which I took the original Revelations off and replaced them with a set of Fox 32 RLC TALAS.
I’m now building up a new model Cotic BFe and was originally planning on fitting the Revelations to this but would I be better with the Rev’s on the Stumpy and the Fox’s on the BFe???
Both forks are 15mm Maxle’s and both bikes have Hope Hoops fitted so I can fit them either way.
Any suggestions?Posted 7 years ago
