    They worked very well. Still playing with the settings but I'm really loving them.

    Thanks. It was taken at a local park in the San Francisco Bay Area. I'll try to catch Marin on film next time I go there because that place has amazing views of the California coast. Definitely one of my favorite places to mtb.

    Just picked up 2013 Revel 0 29er. Love it so far!! Threw on some eggbeater pedals. Going to get the avid speed dial levers the current ones dont seem to fit right against the x5 shifters

    The speed dial levers will give you much better feel and modulation with the existing brakes.

    Glad to see a Revel thread.

    Here's my 2011..



    Only upgrade so far are the tires.



    (Right) Geax Saguaro TNT 2.2 (Left) Kenda Small Block 8



    Depending on how you mount the tires, you can either have them for Speed or Traction. I have both F&R set up for Speed right now. Some ppl like Speed for Front and Traction for Rear.

    This thread has given me inspiration!

    Seconded.

    I had them on for a few days before my BB7's and it was a big difference.

    Nice bikes.

    Rode 10 miles at the park near my place. It was a fun ride, but the climbing was tough due to the heat.

    Heat? Lucky. Where do you live?

    I'm from California. The weather was only about 60 degrees yesterday, but doing a lot of climbing while the sun is constantly beaming down on you makes it feel so much warmer than it actually is.

    Re: Revel Thread

    Does anyone know what the weight of the stock Revel 1 29er wheels are?

    Hoping someone knows before I pulled them apart to weigh them.

    I did and I've got about 200 miles on it, it's a great fork, seems to be on par with a Reba from riding one and talking with other people.

    Search my name in this thread and you'll see a short write up I did.

    I actually went back and read your post. Thank you!
    I'm puzzled though, the program says "Raidon LO R Air Disc Blk 26 $150.00 " but I do not see this exact one on their website currently. I see a "Raidon LO R Coil 26" - SR SUNTOUR Cycling

    Is this the same fork at the one offered for the 29er (Raidon LO R Air Disc Blk 29 $175.00)?

    Hello, I've been watching your mods here and am thinking of doing some myself. I am totally clueless to one though? Where you remove a gear from the crank and put the cover in its place. Im buying a 2013 29er 1 soon and was just curious where it might help? Thanks for the thread

    It is a simple mod. Just unscrew the 4 chainring bolts and substitute the large chainring for the guard and replace the bolts.

    You talking of this?

    Revel Thread-camerazoom-20130226165105618.jpg

    That's called a bashguard and it replaces the big chainring on your crankset.

    You do this to convert to either a 1x or a 2x setup.

    I see, both aesthetic and functional right? IMO it looks better, must pertain to type of riding done, and if id a had one 5 yrs. ago on my first MB I probably wouldn't have the scar on my calf where the chain popped off attempting to ride a wheelie uphill over roots.... Lessons learned- 1.Research and ask questions, 2. Tune ups are important and 3. Don't buy the medium size because it's on clearance (especially if your 6' 1")..

    Nice video. Never new Lake Chabot had trails like that. That is Lake Chabot as in Alameda? I use to go fishing there but entered through the parking lot at the golf course where there use to be a hole in the fence so it was much less of a hike. Is there a lot of climbing involved there? I have a friend who is just starting and wanted to do something without a lot of hefty climbs. I think Water Dog Lake in San Carlos would be too much for him.

    It's definitely a fun ride, but there is some climbing involved. I start at the willow golf course off Redwood Rd. There's Climbing at the start of the trail all the way to the intersection of Brandon and Towhee trail, but I think the climb is manageable especially if you pace yourself. The downhill back to the parking lot is what makes the climb at the start worth it imo. That video I took was Brandon trail all the way up to the stone bridge and back again.

    Another option is going down Towhee then take either Live oak or Honker's bay trail which will lead to the bridge connecting the lake. Then ride up Cameron, turn left onto Ten Hills trail and left onto Brandon to the parking lot. Fun loop, but you have to be careful of the Live oak trail as it's fairly steep with lots of small rocks/ruts all over.

    Picked up my son's new Revel 1 26" yesterday. He loves it, and it's a sharp looking bike. I got him the black/orange/white combination. He's out of school tomorrow, so we're going to hit some trail and break it in.
