    New fork has landed

    After much discussion on various forums between the Rock shox revelation and the fox float fork i settled for the fox, and so happy i did. 140mm of the best trail fork around. happy days




    RP2 rear shock will be ordered as soon as i have the spare cash and ill look at replacing the drivetrain as and when. 1x10 set up is most probable.

    oh thought u ment squidgy and floppy, which it can be if not run at correct air pressures, too many knobs and bits to play with so setting it up could take a while.

    If nothing else, matches the frame graphics perfectly.

    here it is on its first run out, conditions weren't the best but had a bit of fun on hard packed ice and snow

    the fork is awesome, smooth,light and gorgeous. just need a decent rider to get the most out of it now

    I have a very similar fork (non Kashma Float 140 RLC) on my Trance X as well. The only issued I've encountered is during stair jumping. When I try to do short stair jumps the front end feels fine while the rear end seems to be blowing through travel, I have a 2011 Trance X2 with the RP2 boost valve shock.

    the only difference between the 2 forks is the kashima coating and the fork seals which can be changed anyway, what length is your rear shock? i want an rp23 when i can afford it but dont know if to go for a slightly longer shock, currently got a 184mm shock on it

    I have the stock RP2 rear shock, so we're probably in the same boat as rear shocks are concerned. Rock Shox does make a Monarch in 7.25X1.75 and Push Industries will work on it,although I'm not sure if Push actually stocks Monarch shocks in that length.

    From what I understand the best way to go if you have a Trance X is to buy a Monarch and have Push modify it. Occasionally OEM RP23's are available in that length but they are few and far between.
