I know this has been discussed a while ago, but I just wanted a fresh point of view on the topic and some advice.
I've got a 2006 Trance 2 (aust.) and had always planned to put a new U-turn Revelation on the front end after selling the stock Reba Race.
General people/Trance owners that have gone from 4" to 5" forks
Have you noticed a considerable difference in terms of ride quality and has it made riding certain types of trail harder/easier?
- I understand all the facts regarding climbing/descending and the change in gemoetry etc.
It's just that for the past year I've been riding my HT with a 5" Fox Vanilla 125R- there's nothing wrong with that fork (besides signs of wear- bought second hand). I know that I could easily use those forks, but I'd like to have all the "bells and whistles" of a U-turn Revelation. I really like the whole Motion Control idea (i hate how my vanilla's bounce) and the fact that I would be able to tune geometry/travel to suit the trail I was riding.
I can expect anywhere between $500 and $650 for the Reba- leaving a $450ish gap to get the Revelation... I could also sell the Vanillas for around $430 - buy some Manitou Axel's for $150 to put on the HT (it'll be used as a commuter primarily)... Is this too much buying and selling? I'm just a little strapped for disposable 'mtb' income after buying the Trance.
