    Fox 32 Float 140 RLC or Revelation RLT for Transition Bandit?

    So now that I think that I've decided to get a 2012 Transition Bandit 2, I have to make the choice between the Fox 32 Float 140 FIT RLC and the Rockshox Revelation RLT 140 Dual Air.

    I'm a long time 20mm axle Marzocchi owner and this is my first time devling into either brand or into the trail bike/QR15 realm, so I'm just looking for opinions of each here. Thanks.

    Try to get Revelation in 20mm; having said that I liked the OE Fox Float 140. It's a pretty close call.

    Revelation would have to be 15mm because it is part of Transition's build kit...

    Are you buying the build kit from them or...? Because you could always get a marz. Between the two I would rather get the Rev.

    Im buying a Bandit 2 pretty soon as well. Having ridden Fox for over 5 years I dont think ill be changing to anything else I personally dont think theres anything better suspension-wise.
    Either way the axles gonna be the same (15mm) so itll all come down to preference I guess...

    When you say Bandit 2 im assuming youre buying Transition's build kit, where is the fork option?? I thought they only offered the Float. Never mind, found the small lettering where they give the option. Oh well, ill be keeping the fox anyway..

    I've only ridden the Revelation 140 with 20mm - so can't offer any insight.
