    It's a 66 RC2X. 4 rides so far and it is breaking in nicely. Its a nice improvement over the Breakout +. (Small bump and high speed wise.)

    Had a small problem with the low speed compression knob allen bolt falling off. Luckily the knob itself fell off in my hand when I was adjusting it.

    (You can see in the photo that the knob is missing from the bottom the fork leg.)

    And I thought I had to worry about the rebound and X-compression adjusters disappearing...lol.

    I do miss having a travel reduction system a little, but I biased my decision towards downhill performance.

    To be honest even with the travel reduction, the uphills will still be the same struggle. How's the weight compare between the two forks?

    I like the look of the white fork on that frame, a travis 180 in white would look sick too.

    I can't tell a weight difference.

    I saw a couple Travis Single 203 TPC+ forks at The Path tonight.

    I was hoping one of them was a 180 to compare axle to crown height with a 66. I know the 180 is taller. (Just neat to finally see the Travis up close, I'm glad I went with the 66.)

    Haha, not true for me, the ETA makes a HUGE difference for climbing. Travel reduction is a very subjective thing. Some people swear by it, others swear that it screws up the geometry, even for climbing.

    BTW, I see chirs lock his down so about 2" of stanchions are showing for every climb so I know what group he's in.

    I'm with you - I've had a Talas, a Bkout + and a Pike - the travel adjust gets used on every xc ride. IMO, it's invaluable on steep climbs.
    That being said, SylentK did a fair amount of climbing last nite on his Sunday w/ Roco and 888rc2x (and a 32t chainring). Pretty impressive...

    Yeah! I'm sure he'll weigh in on how it rides, but he's kick'n a$$ with that fork. His whole setup is really nice, balanced ride. The only issue was that when he first got it the right seal was leaking like crazy. Not wanting to have to send it back, because of the down time, we pulled it apart and found the inner seal was flipped upside down!? Once we fixed that it's been working great ever since.

    Very strong candidate for my next ride!

    It can be done, I do the same thing on my SGS Team DH bike, but it's certainly a lot more work for me. I used to even tie down the Boxxer once in a while on really long climbs. I adapted the bike to accept a front derailleur, so I do know what it's like to climb steep stuff with it.

    A couple years ago my ETA wasn't working quite right on my Z150 so it would creep back to fully extended after a couple minutes. I had a badly broken collarbone that was just healing, but I couldn't stand climbing without it so I'd be constantly slamming the front end down trying to re-engage it despite the pain. I'm sure Chris remembers that!

    That fork is the best one I have ever ridden (66 ETA Light). It is awesome for everything. Around here we have a lot of steep ups so the ETA is a must. I lock mine down as low as I can, it makes the climbs way easier. This fork plus the efficiency of the DW link make the 7point a very efficient climber for a freeride bike.

    A rather modest picture of my rather modest downhilling effort from this past weekend at Massanutten Virginia. I came in very nearly dead last in my beginner category, but hark, I didn't and that was my goal for my first downhill race. So HAH!!

    Here is me hitting a little hip behind my house.

    I just got my new ride two days ago...I love this bike. Dave you have designed an amazing machine...I got to take it on some DH tracks yesterday and It tracks so well in the corners and off camber. Landing jumps and drops are sooo sweet.
