Recommend me a fork please…
140mm / 150mm travel
Light as possible because I spend most my time riding up hills
But I like to summer in alpine bike parks
Money is flexible, I’ll pay for something if it’s worth it
A bargain 2012 fork in a sale would be nice though 😀
My Fox Talas only lasted a year because I didn’t maintain them. I’m not incompetent, just a bit ignorant.
What should I buy?Posted 5 years agoblandMember
id second Merlin’s Revs for the price. I replaced a 2yr old set of 32’s with them and they are better IMO and i sold teh 32’s for £50 more than the new revs cost me, which incidentally was £20 more than i paid new for them of Brant et al.
It was only a matter of time before the legs wore as they weren’t well maintained.Posted 5 years agotinman66Subscriber
I’ve got RS Rev’s on my Cove and Fox 34 Talas on my Stumpy and have to say they’re both awesome. If I had to pick one I’d probably go for the Fox as they just have a slightly better feel.
Having said that I’ve only had them a few weeks and done a handful of rides so no reliability / maintenance issues yet.Posted 5 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
I’m on the look out for a good set of RC3s now, but they’re not that light…
Revelations are well proven. Stiffer than a Fox 32, good damping if you buy a good one, flexible setup, and reasonably light. And much less of a primadonna than Fox (you can look after Fox perfectly and still have them fail prematurely tbh, Rockshox are far more tolerant of neglect though obviously anything can fail.
For the alpine stuff, personally i’d prefer something a bit more mighty but the Revs will be totally up to it (I did a week in france, and assorted scottish enduro races and uplifts on mine before I got my Lyriks)Posted 5 years agochayMember
Hey mate get a set of coil shock Rock Shox Domain, they are heavier but with steel stanchions so will be alot more durable, I had a set of lyrics, they started to wear and got rub marks.
I replaced them with a set of 180 domains, they are bomb proof if you dont mind the extra weight.

Magura thor- very stiff & the 2012 model is quite light too. Easy to maintain, plush & lots of LSC adjustment. The build quality on them is great, lots of little touches like the end of the stanctions is beveled so it’s easier to get the lowers back on without damaging the seals.Posted 5 years ago
Sounds like revelations are highly recommended… but which model? the top end ones all seem to have tapered steerers and only stocked in White!
I never would have considered a magura fork… I’ll look into that one
So nobody has anything good to say about fox? are the revelations and thors in a different league to a talas?Posted 5 years ago
