Which budget 29er forks….. Rockshox, X-Fusion
I’ve got some Slides, only had them a couple of rides but first impressions are good. Quality finish, positive feeling adjusters which actually make a difference and they seem to be bedding in nicely.
They’re obviously not as stiff as the Vengeances I was running previously but they definitely feel stiffer than some 26er 32mm/15mm floats I’ve tried recently.
The only minor niggle – and this is more an indication of my utter cackhandedness – is that it’s easy to overtighten the axle when the wheel is removed as there’s no “stopper” as such. Still, you’ll only do it once.Posted 5 years agosssimonMember
Blantant hijack but I’ve a set or 29er recons for sale in the classifieds (15mm tapered), couple of mates have them recon on a giant and a specialized and it’s a great fork, bought a set for my own 29er project that has now hit the lack of cash wall.
Only thing they have noted is their seals need lubed more often than revs and rebas they’ve both had before or they get a bit stickyPosted 5 years ago
Cheers for the thoughts and info guys, I’ve got a pair of the recon silvers at 120mm and was thinking of getting something a bit more substantial ie bolt through and tapered but guess I’ll have to spend a pretty penny to to see a marked improvement, x-fusions may still be the answer, recons feel a bit ‘noodly’ but will persevere with them for now.Posted 5 years ago
Which I’d checked on here before getting trigger happy last night, oh well! Bought a pair of 130mm revelations from crc for £252 BOOM! Thanks for the offers, i would probably have considered the F29 but too late!
Sssimon – I will now be selling the recon forks if interested?
Will also be selling an as new 4 month old on-one scandal 29er 18″ frame in raw with a slack set headset that the forks were fit too. Also the 4month old reverb doesn’t fit the new frame either so that’s got to go too!Posted 5 years ago
