Which forks for new 456?
do they have to be brand new? i've got a set of 2008 Fox 32 Float RLC 140mm travel forks for a QR front wheel, post mount brake mount, steerer length : 213mm
colour : silver (weighing in at around 1820g-ish).
can supply photos if interested, just pm me or post a reply
despite being a 2008 model it has had light use (probably about half a dozen times)
these are great forks but they are just gathering dust in the garagePosted 7 years ago
genuine reason for sale; an unwanted project as bought in preparation for getting a 456 frame myself but have since gone for something less “beefy”.
I've just built up a 456 and I am really torn on what forks to get… I am looking at either PIKE 454 Coil, Revelation Race (but which one!) or FOX 32 Float RL. All are around the £350-£400 mark and all have 140mm travel.
I have a QR front wheel and would rather not have to buy a new wheel…. HELP!! ThanksPosted 7 years agosing1etrackSubscriber
I run 140 travel 2007 Marz All Mountain 3s on my summer season which are ever so slightly too long, particulary climbing where they wander a lot, but are awesome downhill and over anything rocky and rooty. Probably not ideal on a 'normal' 456 as they'd feel even longer with the steeper head angle, but a set of 130mm would do you maybe (not sure which variant they are – maybe AM SLs?) and they're cheap as chips and bombproof.Posted 7 years agob rMember
Thor's on mine too, 20mm's.
New from £500:

140mm 2010 Rev race, from merlin cos they were cheap (even cheaper once I sold the free RF headset they came with for 20 squids).
Went with 9mm Q/R as I had those wheels. Dont use U-turn or lock out so wasnt willing to pay extra for such a "feature" (and sold the lockout lever here too, which knocked another 18 quid off the effective price…).
Weigh approx 3.5lbs, half the weight of the Marz I originally had on it (the 456 frame took on parts from a burly full sus build)!Posted 7 years ago
How do PIKE 351 compare to 454 other than being air rather than coil. I think they are made for specialized OEM?
Would love Rev teams but too much, especially when you add on the cost of a wheel…
Thors look great but £100 more than my budget, especially when you add in a new wheelPosted 7 years ago
