    Renegade Thread

    Any other fat bikers here using a Renegade fork? I scored one on the cheap and have been reasonably impressed with my purchase. RST is a much maligned brand but they seemed to have done well with this product. My only gripe is the seemingly total lack of technical information on it and would appreciate any knowledge that others may have.

    I did the test for FATBIKE.com on the Renegade fork. https://fat-bike.com/2016/08/review-...spension-fork/

    Since that time when Mike Dunn told me to keep the fork, both Mike and Bobby Acuna were let go, the California Sales/Service office was closed and RST put an idiot named Neal Arnett at BikeFettish in charge of US Brand Management. Neal refuses to honor Mike's wishes that I keep the fork and refuses to sell me parts to maintain the fork.

    I would steer clear of RST as the company seems to be in turmoil and is very unstable.
    Just my $.02

    Hi.

    Anyone have a setup guide/airpressure table for this fork?

    I have searched without luck.

    I have 2 forks. One on a Diamondback Catch 2 (modified into a fat bike) and one on a GBM. I have it set at 70psi for 30% sag. I weigh 140 lbs.
    The manual suggests pressure to rider weight in kg. rider weight 60-80kg - psi pressure 60-80.

    No, one came with the fork. It appears to cover all their forks.

    Yeah, decent product, but zero technical support.

    The last time I had a question I called the # on their website. I was able to get an answer, but the guy on the other end sounded like he was a little surprised to hear the phone ring.

    What would be the group consensus on using the Renegade in cold weather? In particular, will running it in single digits/ sub-zero potentially damage the internals?
