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.

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.

Imagine how much better a rv rental will make your bike perform, what a tard. The 888 should be good for you if you are just starting out its a good solid chassis.

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.

You should create at least 5 more threads about your new walmart+1 bike, the dozen you've already made aren't nearly enough. Have you actually ridden a bike before?

Name_dropper: I am going to be very blunt here, if you have such problem with what people post here, then maybe you should not be here. Every single post I have read from you are negative and hostile. I don't understand why you post here.
