If you read my other question, you know I have a new 930 coming from the bike brown truck soon. Got some great info here from rockyuphill ( thanks) so i am hunting again.
The fork on it is a RS recon gold tk with 20mm maxle and a tapered steerer. I like the 20mm maxle idea but i am guessing i will need a whole fork upgrade vey soon.
I really like what i read on the manitou tower pro and i see that they will have a 15mm qr axle option soon. Does anyone know if they will have a 20mm axle option ? I seem to remember reading something online about that but can't find it now.
If i want to retain my 20mm hub on the stock wheel ( i don't have a huge upgrade budget right now) what are my options for a better fork that i won't have to sell one of my kids for. If I went with the TP and 15qr option, can i run a sleeve on the 15mm axle to fit my 20mm hub? If I can even do that am I asking for performance/stiffness loss?
I know the fork on the 950 is a revelation rl 29 with a 20 mm axle, is that much of an upgrade? Maybe I could find a take off.
