Yeah I've got a set of those that came on a bike. Bouncey and barely damped describes them well. I threw a motion control in them which helped a little but they're never going to be good. The RTC3 and dual flow rebound is an option, but a pricey one and it leaves you with an overly progressive and bouncey air spring. It's probably better to sell them and upgrade. Feel free to give me a call and discuss options.

You'd be about Psychavocs height too. I think a 160mm fork would be too much for her size bikes.

Set up a mattoc with a 140-160 switch like my old shermans and we'll buy a pair. :)

Errrk. Maybe I'll look for a secondhand pair of something with a bit more travel and tuneability.

It can be done. But I think Psych needs to ride the minutes I've got on Mrs Dougal's intense.

Read up on abs+ tuning. It's the magic bullet for lighter riders.

Hey Psych, what wheelsize?

I just realised I still have my old Revelations with Sektor dampers.
Have both Dual Position and Dual Air springs.
Tapered steerer.
26" though.

Could even sell you the Dual Position spring.

I have the pike on the front of my Reign and leave it on full most of the time, the bike feels weird with it lowered.


Isn't it ridiculous when you get to the bottom of say, Deliverance or other techy descents and think....man, that felt weird. Only to find that since you don't use your (2-step/TALAS/Dual Position) suspensino setup, you forgot to lengthen it again!

I often get to the bottom of a hill feeling a bit more beat up than usual and then realise I had the lock out on the whole time.....

Yeah I've done the "that felt sketchy" run and found forks wound right down before. I never bother turning on propedal and stuff like that because I know I will forget it at the other end and be sadface

Yeah sometimes I get like that. I'll stop at the bottom of a run all confused as to why the front end grip sucks and the bike is trying to ping me off into the nearest shrubbery. So I'll have a look and yep sure enough I've had Rockshox Revelations the whole time. :paranoid:
