What fork for On-One 456?
As per the title – what recommendations and experiences with different forks for the On-One 456? It will be used for trail riding. Looking at getting a 140mm fork. Looking at e.g. Fox Vanilla R and the new Revelation dual-air.
Terrain around here – singletrack, lots of roots and rocks, flat, very little climbing

I have a set of 2005 Pike SL’s on mine (also from Winstanleys recently!). Pikes can be wound up and down. Otherwise a set of WORKING Mazz 55’s????
Will someone PLEASE buy those Pike Race’s from Winstanleys- they are alot better quality than the 409/426’s. Better decals and paint finish!Posted 9 years ago
What a great Saturday night 🙂 In front of the bike forum after having spent a few hours out riding the FS in the snow and ice.
Thanks for all the great feedback! Pike seems to be the weapon of choice for a 456 frame. I currently run a old Revelation u-turn and a 36RC2 talas on other bikes but a Pike is still missing in the garage.
As Hairychested mentions he favors the coil Pike. There is a u-turn air version as well.
So … what experiences on Pike coils vs Pike airs?
Thanks again!Posted 9 years ago
Buy them from your friendly neighbourhood LBS and they’ll do a spring swap free if you need it. IME 99.9% find the standard coils OK anyway. Works better (again IME)and saves all that faffing and bothering about “have I got the right p.s.i, has some leaked out, etc, etc”
I prefer coil 😉
BTW I do have a hairy chest, but I’m definitely not “hairychested” (the STW member) – he wasn’t very nice to me yesterday so I thought I’d clear that up!Posted 9 years ago
