Doing my annual tear down and rebuild on my Ti Motolite. Part of this is to satisfy my jones to buy something new for the bike this year so I won't give in and buy a 29er. That and I've been off the bike since November and barly rode at all last year because of my POS left hip which will also need an "upgrade" at some point.
So, besides a needed wheel rebuild (rebuilt my kings on bonty dusters to run tubeless, nice) and King BB I'm kicking around a new fork. I've got an 06 Pike U-turn air that has been push'd and still rides nice but does weigh 2050 grams with the steerer cut and without the maxle.
I'm OK with a fixed travel fork now as I basically ride the Motolite at 5 inches now. Throwing around a Reba Team 120 (20mm) or Fox F120 (15 QR). I'd prefer 130mm but I can always use a Ventana King crown race to add a few deg of HT angle.
Has anyone got an acutal weight on either fork (and with or without the axle). I'd also be interested to hear any real weight on other forks out there in the 120-140mm range. I'm not a total weight weenie as I"m fat, but if I can save 3/4 of a lb or so - why not?
I'm not interested in a 9mm dropout though. Just 20mm or 15QR.
Thanks - GG
