    New Bluto Thread!

    Hey MTBR, are you gonna delete this thread too?

    I saved one of the pics of the new fork on a bike from the old thread.
    Anybody save the specs or the shot of the fork?

    If they want us to sensor ourselves... they'll need to provide the mtbr community with guidelines. Like many here, my own standard is that it is ok to post anything that isn't illegal.

    Doesn´t look that bad the new Reb... err.. Bluto!
    To me 32mm stanchions seem to be too weak to handle the weight of a fatbike proper.

    Thanks for the new thread!

    I questioned a guy who has been riding it about the 32's and he claimed it was stiff. I didn't ride it myself so can't comment. I will take his word for it because of the amount of riding he has done through his career.

    Wouldn't the thread still be in the recycle bin spot where the naughty threads go to think about what they've done?

    Also, sadly I somehow ended up on Pinkbike this morning and a couple people were talking about it there too...

    So ROCKSHOX... time to come out with it already... the word is out.

    That's a good point. We don't know if the thread was intentionally deleted or if there is a technical problem.

    Sea Otter starts tomorrow. My guess is that rockshox will debut the bluto there.

    what you should be asking your self, will it fit my bike frame, aka the crown will be massive and most downtubes will not work with this fork.

    Its almost certain that this fork will work with most fat bike frames. How well, is to be determined. The crown width doesn't matter unless you are doing bar spins. How often do you turn the bars past 90 deg? The only real concern would be the axle to crown length which if too long will cause excessive HT slack. I'm willing to bet that RockShox designed this fork to work with most current fatbike frames to give them a HT angle of between 67-69 deg.

    Well, I know for sure of ONE carbon frame out there that clears the fork crown on the new fork.
    I proudly ride for these guys.
