super pimpy TF tuned PUshed RS Revalation 60 - 110mm travel but at £340
I've been looking to get this done to a set of Pike forks.
Revelations and Pikes are "apparently" an excellent fork out of the box, although it does have a few issues when pushed to the bigger stuff. There is no high speed damping circuit and just a simple low/middle, this means the fork can be set up to be nice and supple on most stuff but gets confused on big stuff. The problems with this is when you do large drops the fork blows through it's travel and bottoms out, and then rebounds back and tops out before the damping system can get a grip. For ninety percent of what I do with my Pike the fork handles fine... in fact excellently - but when I drop the 3-4ft drops I get evil clunk-clunk buckaroo... which makes me very wary of pushing the fork onto the 6-8ft drops I do on my Shermans (other bike). Anyway... the PUSH sytem gets round this by installing a high speed compression and rebound circuit thus removing the issue (Shermans have this).
Question... will you ever require the PUSH system and are you hence paying for something you will never use?
I take it the revelations are secondhand? Probably with a different spring rate and tuned for another rider so would need to be retuned... think another £80 at least.
When getting forks and shocks tuned it's only worth it if your having particular issues you want sorted. For most people the stock settings are fine and if it's not annoying you it probably doesn't need fixed.
I don't do air forks/shocks - although above a certain weight TFtuned suggest air as springs are simply not available to suit. Give them a call to discuss... in my experience very few shops know more than nothing about suspension.
