I want to get a new fork for my 09 Wolfridge but I can't decide which way to go. I currently have a Marzocchi Z1 150 mm at 538 mm A2C and 2550g.
I'm currently down to 2 quite different forks.
Either I go for a 2010 RS Revelation Team 150 U-turn, about 1850g and 529 mm A2C, which would give me a HA of 66.5 degrees. ~750 USD
Does anyone know when the 2011 Revelation with carbon steerer will be released?
Or a 2011 Fox 36 Talas 160 RLC, at about 2150g and 545 mm A2C, which would give me a HA of 65.7 degrees. ~1050 USD
This would extend the wheelbase 3 mm and pull the BB up by 2.5 mm, so it wouldn't mess up the geometry terribly from what I have now and quite like.
So it's either trail friendly Revelation or DH friendly 36 Talas. I've dropped forks like Fox 32 because I believe the RS Revelation is better.
I bike because I like the downhills but the uphills and flats become much more fun when I have a light bike. But what do you think? Will it be enough with the Revelation for downhill trails and the occasional bike park? No big drops though, nothing more then 1-1.5 m.
