The 888 RV is what comes stock on the Airborne Taka. It's 200mm travel, double crown. It has rebound adjustability, but I think that is it as far as tunability goes. Anyone have any experience with these forks? How do they feel?
Fine for a beginner to intermediate and very reliable, but when you are are ready...step up to the 888 evo RC 3 cartridge. You will absolutely love it! More adjustments and you cant beat the feeling of the RC3 cartridge. Super plush and still plenty of bottom out when needed.
ok thanks. I just hope the 888 RV on my Taka will be plush even for me being a beginner. Buying a fork that costs more than my whole bike isnt really in my forseeable future, and neither is my need to step up to it.
Get it. The 888 chassis is sweet and the least maintenance of any fork. When you want something plusher you can just buy a new damper cartridge*. An RC3 Evo cart will make your fork just a slightly heavier version of Marz's top-o-the-line fork and an Avalanche cartridge will make it even better.
*You'll be fine with the stock one for years. It can be tuned with different oil weights and heights.
Yeah thats what I've heard so far. I just can't wait to take it up to mt.snow whenever it opens this year. Last year I think it opened after memorial day weekend in early May or something(correct me if I'm wrong), so I would think it'd be the same this year. Anyone have any insight on this? I know it also depends on when the snow melts, but that shouldn't be too far off for this season. Anyway I think this fork should feel pretty good once its broken in.
