Hi, I have a question about the Fox Van R and the Van RC2, besides the difference in price what advantage does one have over the other and, which would make a better heavy duty trail fork? Thanks in advance.
I'm not sure what Jeffscott is talking about with the little lever thing. My RC2 doesn't have one, didn't see anything about the newer models having a lever either. The RC2 has, in addition to the R's rebound and preload adjusters at the crown, two adjusters at the bottom of the right leg (so not something you can do on the fly), one for low speed compression damping control, the other for high speed compression damping control. I use mine close to factory settings, and play with it a bit depending on the area I'm riding in; most people I've talked to haven't changed from the factory settings much, if at all, so probably the factory setting of the R would suit most. The RC2 also has a bottom out control boost on the 07 models (the 06 does as well, but is an internal rather than external adjustment). I believe the R also has an internal bottom out control, but not positive.
