    Sadly so true, I'm hanging for the 29+ forks from Magura myself...

    Was told yesterday that Rockshox has a fat bike fork coming but it won't be called the RS-1 and it will be MY15 product.

    So if I'm reading this correctly, I can use an original Rockshox RS-1 with a 5" carbon tire, as long as it's installed upside down.

    Interestingly, carbon is about the only way to do an inverted single crown fork IMO. It's a piss-poor design structurally because of all the independent leg movement, but the stiffness and ability to do shapes other than tubes or CNCed crowns gives a bit of hope that this can actually work (in addition to the system that x-fusion revel has). It still doesn't make for the most optimal chassi weight-wise (for the same stiffness), but now the weight penalty is going to get much smaller to the point where it may be notional. Casted aluminum and magnesium lowers are pretty darn light, way less than a pound, but this is the one thing that may be lighter (and structurally sound).

    I wonder how big of a brake rotor it's rated for? Probably 180mm max would be my guess.

    I'm not understanding something here:
    Claimed weight: 1,666g (3.67lbs) from Pinkbike review.
    Weight 1666g according to SRAM RS-1 specs.

    When a Fox Float 29 weighs 1.67kg.

    If the weight for the RS-1 included the proprietary hub then I could understand how it's significantly lighter than competitive products......

    Otherwise I'm not understanding how this thing will sell for outrageous sums of money when the weight and stiffness are on par with competitive products for a fraction of the cost.

    The benefit is not necessarily in reduced weight, but in the added stiffness, reduced stiction and unsprung weight that this design offers, as well as better lubricating and less oil cavitation, which leads to marginally better performance. This design has been used for these reasons in motorcycles for the better part of the past 25 years.
