    What are seals and parts for servicing of X fusion forks like in the UK? Tempted by the forks but want to know what parts are like to get hold off.

    Cheers

    I reckon 2014 is x-fusion’s year, they can’t be sidelined for much longer. The more people buy in, the more likely independent suspension service/tuners will start dealing with them. I’m in. 🙂

    I had some dealings with Upgrade and they were absolutely first class. My 140mm Velvets have been so much better than I could have hoped too.

    Yep, been directed to liam at Upgrade for servicing and spares for my Slants.

    Liam’s been much help to us at the shop, I don’t know if they send spares direct – we’d certainly be able to order bits in.

    Really impressed with my Velvets, we can’t keep Slants in stock – a great seller this year, with decent customer feedback.

    Directed someone your way the other day for some Slants Si, he read my ad for the Revelation RCT3s (which mentioned I had swapped to Slants), he had no interest in the Revs but was desperately trying to find Slants in stock somewhere!

    Si, sorry what I meant was advice on servicing and spares rather than actual purchasing. But yes, lovely forks.

    Again, us+Liam/Upgrade. Anything in particular?

    Dead simple to service, normal tapered rods for lowers clean and lube. Simple bits inside the air spring assy and damper.

    Sent an email to 18bikes end of last week. Havnt had a reply yet. Was wondering when you will have 160mm Slants back in stock?

    widge – not seen that, can you check/try again.

    Due to a cancelled order, we’ll have ONE, 160mm, black Slant in stock again tomorrow.

    In an attempt to hijack this thread (as no-one’s replied to mine yet), has anyone got an X-fusion Trace, and are running it at 100mm?

    Assuming your forum name isn’t comical and you’re actually very tiny, I’d say go for it! I’ve only a few hours on mine so the small bump sensitivity has yet to come in but based on stiffness and the progressiveness of the spring rate I’d say they suit bigger/harder riders.

    The race is on! Whoever gets thru on the phone first and says the exact phrase: “I love 18bikes and I want a Slant” gets the fork. 😀

    naah, sod that – BT have still yet to sort our second phone line, so card payments on the phone are a PITA.

    It’s active on the webshop, first come, first served.

    J-Tech have been working with them for a while.
    Jim runs them on his stumpy.

    yeah I find the revs dive too much, and flutter under braking. New Pikes come with spacers to tune spring rate but don’t think they are going to fit the revs.

    I had to run quite a bit of lsc to prop my revs up, the slants are much more supportive in standard tune.
