The damping, only forks fitted with the Avalanche cartridge match BOS for having a magic ability to both feel completely plush and at the same time use no more than the absolute minimum amount of travel needed.Price aside what are the improvements over a highend offering such as SID rct3?
I'm looking at a new fork for my 650b hardtail and the Dizzy is on the list for something to look at down the road, as well as the Magura TS8 120, DT Swiss OPM ODL 120, Marzocchi CR320 LCR Carbon... in the mood for something different I guess.I think things are starting to change with BOS in the U.S. at least. The new distributor seems to have things figured out and it looks like there will be a few service centers. Art's Cyclery in San Luis Obispo, CA is selling a lot of BOS stuff and is on track to be their own service center.
I know this is an old topic but gotta say that I am super impressed with the Dizzys albeit the QR axle bolt that comes loose so will have to loctite that sometime soon.
Mine also soon require a lower leg service or fresh seals and oil.
I had Devilles 140mm hi/lows and they were nothing short of absolutely groundbreaking but had to split bike and sell.
I would recommend the dizzys in 100mm format only or 120mm if you're a light rider weight as they can tang a bit under hard stomping.
Wish they did them in 34mm flavour as they are undoubtedly for me and having tried all sorts of other offerings the best of the best.
Ohlins rxf 120mms are what I'd like to try but think a different lower bearing to what I use on my CK head set has to be used with them.
Plus they just look like tuned Pikes.
Never got on with RS having had 4 faulty from new sets of slightly older models.
plus their damping feels utter ****e.
So yes you really do get what you pay for with Bos.
