What 5 inch forks do turner riders use and why? looking at the marz. am 1/ pike/ or keep the rlc. am i on the right track?
you can't have too may steep climbs where you ride or you are tachnicnally a very gifted rider - i started cleaning stuff i had never cleaned when i went from a 03 130mm Z1 FR to a 130mm reveleation - the zoke was super plush but I like the faster handling / better clibing combo of a revelation over a Z!

[who the hell actually adjusts their travel anyway....], and you can get them for next to nothing nowdays.....I've often thought of upgrading, but really can't justify it after I dialed in the oil level and put new enduro wipers on - it's a keeper and compliments the Spot's handling
check out the sram/rockshox website - they are great forks - pretty cheap and the best option if you are not getting a fork with a 20mm thru axle.tg said:Can you tell me more about the RS revolation ? I know im not interested in a 20m wheel.
Zilla, I have made a few sarcastic comments to posters asking about forks and mentioned the search function a few times but people don't listen - if you can't beam em join em..as an observation though I wonder how many of the threads on this forum are regurgitated every few weeks by different posters.....there probably isn't a lot of original content here...Bikezilla said:
I second Joker. I've ran a 2005 Vanilla RLC, 2004 Z1 FR, quick release version, an AM1, later moded to a ZAM1 (20mm lowers), a Maverick DUC32 and a PIKE, dual air (I have a coil on my DJ bike).jokermtb said:I'm still a fan of the 2004 Z1fr 130mm.....it's a pretty foolproof fork and the damping action is very nice..

FWIW to anyone else considering a PIKE Dual-Air, my fork also "shares" air between the pos and neg chambers. It only loses about 5mm or so every 10-14 days of riding so I'm accustomed to re-adjusting the pressures periodically. No biggie. Sounds like mine doesn't share air as quickly as MK's did and I haven't had any of the other issue MK' had (now my Pike will explode tomorrow). Except for some minor damage caused by me almost driving the 'Spot into the garage, the Pike has been great. It has been more reliable and performs better than the '05 TALAS 130RLC it replaced.MK_ said:I caught upgraditis again and got a Dual Air PIKE...I would lose travel on my rides due to air passing between positive and negative chambers. I've rebuilt it several times with differnet viscosity air spring fluids and couldn't cure the problem. Oil leaked out of the Motion Control damper through the floodgate. And the final straw was the fact that my compression knob would never stay in place.
