I'm currently riding a Burner with a Rock Shox Revelation, but I'm needing a little less bike for the trails around here. Considering the Flux, but I hate the fox 120mm fork offerings and have grown to love the Revelation.

I'm considering lowering the travel of my current Revelation to 130mm and putting it on a Flux. Has anyone tried riding a Flux with a 130mm fork?

Sweet! Great info. I've still got the stock 120 Fox on mine and have the 140 Fox sitting in a box. I got it mostly because I was worried about the lower BB and pedal strikes. I've had only a few pedal strikes here and there and I haven't had the time to pursue swapping the forks out.

I have a talas on mine - 120/140.

I run it at 140 for everything except long climbs.

Originally, that was a 150/130 fork, correct? Did you have enough time at 130 to compare 130 vs 140 on the XL?

I'm debating making a customer spacer for my Sweep to bump it down to 130mm, although I really don't have any complaints about the handling at 140mm currently. Pointed downhill, it's an absolute ripper.

I was too new to the bike to offer an asessment at 130 mil.
