    2017 RS Revelation thoughts?

    Hi guys,
    For my 2014 Devinci Atlas build I'm strongly considering a 2017 RS Revelation (with the RTC3 damper upgrade) for the fork. It can be adjusted 120mm-130mm which is right in line with how I see this bike handling.

    The price is right for what I can get it, but I'm 190 pounds and want to ensure it won't be too flexy with the 32mm stanchons.

    A pike or 2018 Revelation have the 35mm stanchons but they are kind of out of my price range at the moment.

    For slightly aggressive Southern Ontario XC riding, do you think the Revelation should hold up?

    Much appreciated.

    I had a Revelation 29 on a hardtail 2 seasons ago. I'm about your weight and found it to be plenty stiff. Its a really solid fork for trail riding. I recommend it.
