Hello all. I've decided the Fox 36 Talas I currently have on the 5 are far more fork then I need and tbh I'm disappointed with how they work over the small stuff. Spoke to TF Tuned and they said this is because of all the extra gubbins inside compared to the Floats.
So.... I made the decision to change them for a second hand pair of 32 Floats. I can't afford new but am willing to pay strong money for some in vgc. Being a bit of a bike tart I didn't really think about anything other then Fox as they look pruudy
Anyway, being impatient and getting bored of waiting more then a couple of days for a set to appear on the usual sites I started thinking about other options. My friend has some Rock Shox Revelations and I've always thought they worked well. I am watching a perfect set of Fox Floats atm but there's no saying I'll win them and the chap doesn't want to finish the auction early.
I expect to pay around £300/400 for 2010/1 second hand Floats but have seen brand new 2011 Revelation RLT for £360 and the XX model for £450. I like the idea of new and worry about reliability of Fox (especially second hand) but if money was no object I'd go for the Fox everytime.
What would you do and what should I do?
