    Rock Shox Revelation for Jet 9 RDO

    Crazy deal on these at Chain Reaction Rock Shox Revelation RL 29" Dual Air 1.5" Taper 2012 | Buy Online | ChainReactionCycles.com

    Or these: Rock Shox Revelation RCT3 29" Dual Air 1.5" Taper 2012 | Buy Online | ChainReactionCycles.com

    Says the suspension is internally adjustable to 120MM. I'd always thought the Rev was 140MM.

    Has anyone used these at 120mm on a Jet 9 RDO? Any reason to think they will cause a problem?

    Re: Rock Shox Revelation for Jet 9 RDO

    I use the 2012 Revelation RL set at 120 on my Jet 9 RDO. It's a little heavy at around 1800+g, but I also have a 2011 Reba RL 120 that weighs about the same. I love the way it feels, which is why I haven't switched to the Reba for fear I might change something.

    Thanks. I'm torn. I have a Manitou Tower Pro sitting waiting to be installed, but just assume the Revelation is a better fork and it's black which matches my frame and all black parts and wheels. Yes, vanity is important.

    I have a 120mm Revelation RCT3 on my Jet, and I think it's a fantastic match. The three position damper is intuitive and works well. Plus, as you pointed out, the black. Go for it!

    Just make sure you get the RCT3. It is vastly superior.
