Revelations 2013 – do they have any travel adjustment?
Dual position air systems (2011/13) need to be replaced as well to reduce the travel, think RRP is £145 ish for parts (we’ll be a bit cheaper obviously)
As jim says the solo airs need to air springs assm’s to reduce travel as well.
Still using my dual air 2012 Reves as more scope for sdjusting pressures.
I reckon manufacturers are trying to make stuff easier for customers to set up (3 pos damping a la RCT3 and CTD and low speed compression) and solo air so just one pressure to set not two to confuse people when they get the pressure/volume relationship between the pos and neg chambers in a pickle. 😕Posted 5 years ago
uh, “stupid screw” i meant was the brake hose guide, not the cable grub, you’d be a muppet to mess that up.Posted 5 years ago
so is the Rev “done” as far as RS is concerned? don’t really have any complaints about 2012s.. so far.
btw those on 2010, i think damping is quite a bit better with “dual flow”.
using too many “” today sorry.
Ah, so there’s a performance difference not just a control difference. Cool, ta!
So in that case… Let’s say you had someone with a 2010 blackbox one, who was being all smug but possibly didn’t know what he was talking about (hypothetically, like…). Is there any new hottness that can be wedged into these older forks to make them better still?Posted 5 years ago
crap phone pic, shim stack and piston fit onto the bottom of the moco.
it’s a straight swap into the RLT Ti s and work with the dual flow rebound, although they work a bit better if the dual flow assm. is reshimmed a little, in a similar way to the 2012 ones 😀Posted 5 years ago
The remotes are a bit of a pain TBH, unless they’re hydraulic they do seem to cause people alot of issues with sticky/dirty cable and weak return springs.
Not sure the electronic kit is going to catch on, I reckon there will be numerous issues with them and it just makes stuff more complicated than it needs to be, it’d be nice if manufacturers could just concentrate on making the current stuff work even better, they are only ‘push’ bikes after all 😉Posted 5 years agoARTSubscriber
Ok while we’re on it then. What’s the difference between the blackbox damping in my 2010 RLT Tis and the stuff that followed on from them. Or put another way, where did the ‘blackbox’ go? Did that technology just get ‘upgraded’ into the subsequent models or what?
Apologies to LoCo if you have indeed answered this up there and I’m just too numpty to get it. … ta in advance.Posted 5 years ago
you better take a course in electrical engineering/programming if you want to continue tuning shocks post .. about 2020? haha 😉 it’s going to be like cars, plug a laptop in and diagnose. has anyone seen what they’re doing with rear shocks, using sensors on fork? how will fork sense, using 3d cameras? Nooo.
basically, DNA is cheaper than BB and more reliable. similar results? LoCo probably knows more..Posted 5 years ago
Haha electronics arn’t an issue 😉 it’s more the reliabilty, availabilty of parts and the costs to the customer, the concern me, I just care too much you know 😆 😉
The units are built with standard parts from what an ex military electrical enginneer freind has told me, the units are well sealed, unsurpisingly but should be rebuildable which out too much hassle.Posted 5 years ago
2012 are dual air spring with a dual flow rebound damper and a DNA RCT3 motion control damper.Posted 5 years ago
2012 Dual position airs are solo air travel adjustable. with the same damping.
2013 are Solo air fixed travel. with the same damping
2013 Dual position airs are the same as 2012 ones.18bikesSubscriber
boxxer – it’s the air side, not the damper, but they come as 150 and you buy a whole new assembly.
Email me with what you’re after – I can work out a price including the swap for you. I can check stock/due dates on the different travel options if you’d like?Posted 5 years ago
