    RST Deuce? Anyone heard of this?

    I was looking at Cannondale's 2010 9'ers and the '4' model has an 80mm RST Deuce
    Anyone heard of this? Maybe a refreshed M-29?
    Its about $1100 MSRP so hopefully its not too far down the line...

    According to GT's post, it's the successor to the M-29.

    Nobody knows yet, with the possible exception of some Cannondale R&D guys. It isn't out yet. As far as I know, RST has pulled all its aftermarket U.S.A. sales and gone back to a strictly OEM sales model. Not likely we will see this fork as an aftermarket item. Maybe some folks will pull it off the bikes and sell them separately.

    Until some Cannondales get out on trails we won't know anything concrete about the Duece. Cannondale didn't have any demos at Interbike this year either, so no one got a ride on it there either, although I was hoping to.

    RST displays bravery

    Any product named the Deuce is sure to be renamed the Douche if its performance disappoints.

    so the final question is, is the Deuce better than the RS Recon SL (w/o motion control)?

    You say the fork is out. Got a link to a seller?

    Got any specs?

    Again, to my knowledge, it is not available, so to answer your question, we'll have to wait until it is.

    to answer the rockshox recons are heaps better. RST are a oem brand and i have got the gila pros and these and they both are like riding fully rigid. there a piece of sh!#. the recon w/o moco are very good

    Been riding the RST Deuce on my 26er for over a year and it's performed flawlessly for me on some of the best Single Track in Europe....
