Are either the 2011 RS Revelation and/or Sektor 650b compatible in 15mm axle?

My 2008/2009 Revelation 20mm axle fits but it's there's not the room of my Fox talas 140.

Hey longcast. I've got both a '09 Rev. Maxle, which fits a 2.35 Nevegal decently, but not as well as a Fox, as you mention. I've also got a '10 Revelation XX, and there's much less arch clearance on it... major bummer, because I love the fork otherwise.... Won't fit a 2.35 Nev, or a 2.35 Neo Moto. A 2.1 Neo Moto, or Racing Ralph, just barely fits... and I mean JUST... I hear some lug buzz on the arch occasionally with the 2.1 Neo... not a good longterm setup.
I can't say for sure, but the 2011 Revs don't look to be any different in terms of tire clearance.... gonna stick with my '09 for now and sell the XX.

Major bummer on the Rev fork as I had my eye on that new Dual Position air version to do a 650B build on my 08 Prophet that currently has a Fox Talas. I also discovered from SRAM that none of the aftermarket Dual Position Air forks are available in white (and I'm not putting a black fork on my all white Prophet). So I figure the new 2 position Fox Talas fork is what I'll use and tire clearance won't be an issue but guess what??? For 2011 the Talas fork I want is also only available in black aftermarket....jeez. Oh, the tech support guy as SRAM did say if I wanted a white fork a shop can order all the seperate parts to build it up that way and the price is about the same. Nice to know but the tire clearance problem makes it a no go anyway.

I guess if I want to keep the travel adjust feature I'll keep my current Talas and change out the current QR lowers to a 15mm setup (something I would really like to have) and get the fork Pushed for better performance....or just leave the lowers as is and make sure my new front hub will be convertible from 9-15mm when the right fork becomes available...or forget about the travle adjust and get the new WB Loop fork or a Fox Float which IS available in white. Yeah, I'm confused:D

Funny, I didn't want a white fork on my black bike....no way no how.... but I've got 2 of them:p
Screw the travel adjust.... get a Float or a Loop. I'm really curious to hear more Loop reports. You DEFINITELY want a thru axle though... even in the wrong color!

I'm thinking about building up a Bastard. Does the Fox 32 mm 150 fork fit or the 36 mm 160? With 5.5 inches of rear travel it would be sweet to be able to run a 6" fork up front. :thumbsup:
