    Who here has a Revel 0 - Black

    I had bought my Giant Revel 0(2012) from the bike shop a few weeks ago. Ive been looking online and on this board and I notice that no one really has one. I was curious if there is people on the board who have them with pics, maybe mods too.

    I just wanna see what others have.

    Bought one for my brother last year, excellent bike for a beginner. First upgrades on it will be the front fork, followed by the drive train (crank, chain, shifters, derailleurs, and cassette).

    That's probably going to depend on how hard it is rode and how often.

    My wife has a revel 1. For her skill level it's perfect and would probably last her for years.

    Yeah! I am use to BBB and they never did last very long, even though I didn't ride them that often. I don't think that I am going to have that problem with this bike(fingers crossed).

    Iíve been thinking of upgrading the fork. Can we use forks with 120mm travel on the revel 0?

    I wouldn't recommend it, it will change the geometry of the bike. You'll probably end up with a front end that will flip flop on uphills. They make reducer kits for most forks, I reduced mine from 140 to 105mm.
