BTW Trekster, I'm not diss'n your XTT, I think it will be a fun fork once you find your desired inertia balance. Its a tempting idea that I considered, but in the end I chose the Revelation (non-U-Turn).Trekster said:I purchased the XTT for my EPI build without trying one or hearing any input about the fork......I am hoping for the best !!
I think for some of colorado's long steep climbs , cranking down the travel will be just the ticket. (fingers crossed)
I originally thought ETA wasn't all that necessary on my 150mm AM1 but I did some long, steep fireroad climbs over the weekend and I discovered that it does help. It did help me to keep the front end straight with less effort and concentration. Every little thing starts to make a difference when the hill is long!chad1433 said:I've had several different travel adjusters and the only one I really like is ETA, which essentially is something completely different than a true travel adjust. I found that climbing with it on is easier and makes some steep sections more tolerable.
You can also use the compression setting as a bit of a "platform" for riding as well. I like my compression adjuster and tinker with if on various trail sections.Trekster said:After reading your comments and looking at my application a little more.
I am going to purchase a 130mm Float RLC....keep the XTT for another application.
I like to stand a push a huge gear (too much SS riding)....I hate fussing with stuff on a ride and hate stopping....
I want a lockout and that is it...
I have a buddy that needs to check his GPS...dial in his for for climbs / down hill....change his glasses...etc...
Dude, You totaly need the 3 setting version, but If you want to just build your bike now, I think you can have Fox or Push ind. retrofit the 3 position lever when it actually becomes available. I'm with you though, the 3 position almost lured me over to Fox, and I didn't EVEN WANT height adjustment-it's just looks so damn easy to use!!!Trekster said:I was under the impression I was getting the all new (late 06 im told) XTT with 3 settings 90 110 130....change wile riding...that will rock !!
The one 06 model I have ready to install has a dial you must turn...difficult to turn wile riding !!
