    X3.....really pisses me off they roll out a new fork and give us every GD piece of info but those #'s. Just a little bit important if your trying to decide on a new fork. I even asked on the RS Facebook page but no answer. No A-C measurement on the X-Fusion Sweep either although we know the offset is 46mm. Frustrating and I've got a new Spitfire frame that need a fork.

    Thanks, I'm feeling a little better now Was actually hoping for a shorter A-C height for the 150 than 542. They were conservative with the offset at 42mm. The new X-Fusion Sweep is 46mm, I think the Fox 34 is 44mm and a White Bros. Loop is 45mm And what's with a 29'er fork listed as 160mm travel. Thought they were supposed to be 140 and 150mm's?

    T2 measurement converts to 1.25". Isn't that the size of the Giant Overdrive steerer tube top section? If so that confirms Giant is in for 650B for sure but we kinda new that already with those very production looking prototypes floating around.

    Anyone know if travel can be adjusted internally with spacers like the Revelation or Lyrik?

    Dear Mate, donīt be fooled with this "Itīs oh so 650B-Spezific" Stuff. Iīm running a 26er BOS Deville on my Spitfire, with regular 40 mm Offset and Steering is no Problem at all!!! Whether on a medium Frame with 65,5 Deg HA or on my freshly switched large Frame with 66 Deg HA.
    To be honest: Wouldnīt like it the 46 mm-Way ...

    Yeah, 42mm offset is an interesting choice by RS... conservative skidad....same as the original Pike, in fact. With the trend toward slacker and slacker head angles I kind of expected something in the 44-46 range..... not that there's anything wrong some variety... people running HA's 67ish and steeper will probably prefer the shorter offset.

    Anyone know if the charger damper is a proper shimmed comp circuit this time? There is lots of blurb about the bladder but nothing about the internals.Pics I've seen are promising as it looks different to the simple design of the the BB Motion Control and DNA dampers which spike to much for my liking.

    Can anyone confirm this? I would like to drop mine just a bit to fit on my explosif build...

    I have about a month of mixed terrain on the fork and it is a monster so far. Coming off a 36 in the past i dont notice any decrease in stiffness. The quality of travel is the best i have ever experienced, and the fork really stays high in its travel...

    I think you need a different air shaft assembly.... so the cheap easy travel changing is not an option
    Whats this line for?

    Anyone got a true scaled weight? Claimed weights are usually not accurate

    But more than 26er fox 36 160...
    180mm forks goes on bikes with slacker head angles, so more offset makes sense.
