    Light 1.5" steerer fork

    I'm looking for a lighter fork for general trail riding as well as XC riding/racing. Right now i have a domain and it's really heavy. I saw this revelation cheap on bikewagon

    http://www.bikewagon.com/Rock-Shox-R...-p8796265.html

    I assume it's so cheap cause i've seen a few bad reviews about them breaking or because there is no market for a light 1.5" fork

    The bike is a vagrant. I'm trying to get the weight down a little, i guess it's around 35lbs

    I'm looking for the sektor in 1.5" and 20mm axle, the rockshox site says they do make the size, but i can't find it.

    Why not run a reducing headset? Either one that will accept 1 1/8 or tapered. It would open up your options by a large margin.

    It's cheap because hardly anyone buys full 1.5 forks and Bikewagon has loads.

    I have one (from Bikewagon), the deal is genuine, the fork is excellent. The first few months of RS current Air-Uturn line up were faulty, whether design or manufacture they weren't reliable, but that's cleared up now.

    That's a good fork, check it over when you get it, it might need Oil and grease (mine did, RS suck at putting the right amounts in their forks) but other than that I recommend it wholeheartedly.

    #Edit, as far as I know the 1.5 and Tapered Sektors or OEM only.

    ^what fix the spade said. and personally id go for a lyrik. the weight penalty is not huge and i think the vagrant is a frame that really needs the extra beef.

    Thanks for the info.

    I realized the lyrik was on the site for not much more....

    I'll probably stick with that.
