    Do a search...there are a few pre made fat ready forks, sandman, flame, risse racing.

    Otherwise you'll have to wait until someone like rock shox comes out with something...if you are not interested in the lefty.

    Sounds like RS will have theirs out this fall, not that much longer.

    Heard the same thing from them, directly. Was selling them a Lefty for a customer, and in chatting, he mentioned it. Said soon, but no firmer date was provided.

    Also gave no details, sorry.

    yxan, all I can tell you now is that Leftys sure as shootin', fit Bud with a CS, the rest, surely ought to if they want to be taken seriously.

    It'll be a welcomed sight when they do release it since the interest for squish is upon us.

    Interesting, so I wonder if carver plans to do a package deal with their frame & new fork?

    Exciting times, I think there will be some interesting new stuff by the end of the year. Can't wait. Cash ready....

    Dates are good and all but MFG spring and damper technology would be better. Currently have a SC32 no serious complaints with it aside from the issue with braking, not bushing play but wheel drift/shift.

    I would personally be looking for something like old MARZ technology. Air assist with coil springs swap the oil and wipers each season tune the springs and oil level to your preferences and weight. Nickel coated stanchions.

    The Solo air from RS in 2013 I feel leaves a good deal of room for improvement. It seems like they have pretty much dropped dual air. If they had dual air on said up coming offering i would have no reservations.

    Just about the same time as my new 9-0-7 should be arriving. Now all I need is a price$, to decide weather to go Lefty again or RS.

    That is what I am curious about too. Either way if they pair it with a frame, there will be guys that only are interested in the frame only so I'm sure forks will be kicking around.

    "Any word if the RS will be available to purchase or are they reserved for a production bike?"

    That's a good question. Another good question is the steerer tube type. The newest fat frames seem to be coming with 44mm headtubes which makes me wonder if On-One, Trek, and Specialized know something we don't. If the fat suspension forks come with tapered steerer tubes they won't be much use for us Pugsley, Moonlander, and Mukluk owners.
