I'm sick of my Float 130 only getting 100mm of travel. It's a 2011 FIT RLC 32, and I lowered it to 130mm. So here's the deal: I run this fork on a Yeti ASR-5, and though I love the feel and tunability of the fork, I feel like only having 100mm of travel up front is holding me back when I'm pushing it hard on the downhills. So I've thought about switching to a revelation, even fantasized about the new PIKE coming out this year, but in the end, I can't decide what to do. I've narrowed it down to these 2 choices:
Either I send my Float in to PUSH and have a high volume air canister installed -OR-
I throw down some cash for a Vanilla 32.
I love the tapered steerer, and have no issues with a 15mm axle because I'm only 150#. I will definitely stay with this format... no straight steerers or 20mm axle conversions in my future. I also will not consider putting a 36mm fork on my 5" travel bike. I have my bike down to about 27ish pounds, and while I don't mind adding a half pound for a significant boost in performance, weight is definitely a concern.
Anyone have any ideas for me? Just looking for any input from people who have run either (or both?) fork.
