I was just going to post up asking about the longer Revelation today. I nearly pulled the trigger the last couple days on a Lyrik off ebay and was checking out some of the specs (namely whether or not I wanted to add that much weight compared to the Air U-turn Pike) when I ran across the press release for the Revelation. Definitely thinking that might be a better route for me now as I'm not a hucker and the Endo is my only bike so not really eager to add 1.5 lbs just for the extra 20mm that I won't use that much. My only concern is that I didn't hear too many positives about the 150mm Talas 32 Fox put out, wondering if the extra 10mm is the breaking point for 32mm stanction forks. Any chance Rock Shox has figured out a way to do an air U-turn Lyrik?NoahColorado said:I just ordered a new Revelation Race 150 for the Endorphin! I'm so excited, should be here tomorrow afternoon. Should drop 1.5lbs from my bike at the expense of just 10mm of lost travel. At 34lbs my Endo is setup pretty darn perfect as-is for desert riding, but could stand to lose some weight for higher elevation XC rides and extended climbs. Thinking of trying an air shock again - any one using a Monarch? The new dual-air monarch looks pretty trick.
BTW, my V-Tach just got a little Double Barrel upgrade - schweet!
Thats the first time I've ever been called that! I'm testing out an Ibis Tranny right now that tips the scales at 19.2lbs - thats weight weenie territory. Any tips how I can get my V-tach down to the low 20s (besides removing all the parts)?006_007 said:Weight Weenie.
You can always take a dremmel and remove whatever metal you think it's redundant.....NoahColorado said:Thats the first time I've ever been called that!

Nice Noah, both those things are looking good. Is that a custom painted Knolly logo on the Endorphin? Definitely let us know how that Revelation handles. Also good to see a Manitou fork mounted up, hoping they get back in the game for 150-160mm forks soon. I'd have one of the newer Nixons if they would have made an adjustable travel version of the Elite.NoahColorado said:My babies!

Any thoughts yet regarding the stifnesss in comparison to the Wotan? I've ridden the 32 Fox Talas 150mm fork with the 15mm TA and was not all that impressed in terms of stiffness so I'm really hoping that the Powerbulges and the Maxle on the Rev help a little. I've ridden the Wotan and would have to agree that it sets the bar pretty high in the stiffness department. :thumbsup:NoahColorado said:I think the fork should be stiff enough, I mean its got POWERBULGES! I'm going from the Wotan which is the stiffest fork ever so I'll let you know if I notice a difference.
