Strengths:    Great bike! Very light (XT kit)and very fast. Turns on a dime. It feels like 100% of my pedal stroke goes straight to the back wheel.

Weaknesses:    Pivot bushing has a bad squeak after 6 months of riding. I had it replaced and it has been flawless ever since.

Bottom Line:   
If you are looking for a great cross country bike, you won't regret this purchase!

Strengths:    This bike is light, pedals well, can be singlespeed with out chain tensioning device.

Weaknesses:    Decals, but to be fair I tape things to my bike in endurance races so any decal would chip off with the tape.

Bottom Line:   
This bike ripps, if you lose dont blame the bike, blame your lack of preperation. Really this bike has everything anyone could want in a bike, simple service, fast, and awesome looking.
Dont buy this bike if you are just going to fart around on some trails. Although it could take decades of riding.
This bike is a pure bred race steed, and therefore would be unhappy spinning up climbs, it wants to be hammered.
I have tried to justify buying a new bike, but can't.

Rockshox Revelation RCT3

My Revelation feels awesome in the garage. I am running 25% sag and minimal LSC. I regularly use all the travel.....and yesterday increased the weight of the Damper fluid by removing 50ml and topping it up with a heavier weight fork oil. The shock ships with RS 5W oil in the damper with a Viscosity ... Read More »

I have searched and found out that this is a common problem for these forks(~2010 vintage rev), but I can not for the life of me find out what act ... Read More »

Question about the Revelation RL (2014 model)

Hello folks. I'm fairly sure I'll be preordering a new Trek Remedy 7, which comes with a 2014 model Revelation RL fork. I did some digging around, and I think the 2014 Revelation RL has the same damping as the 2013 models, "Motion Control DNA RL" with rebound adjust and "dual flow". [B]My questio ... Read More »

Unable to remove front axle Rock Shox Revelation fork

Hi. The front axle on my Revelation fork won't come out. As I loosen the axle with the skewer handle it unthreads but after a few more rotations it binds up. It doesn't appear crossthreaded. I've tried spraying it with tri flow and let it sit over night but still no luck. I was wondering if any one ... Read More »
