    B29 & RockShox Revelation RCT3 29" Dual Air 1.5"

    How well will the RockShox Revelation RCT3 29" Dual Air 1.5" do on the 13 B29?
    I am thinking about ordering one instead of the Fox 34. Need opinions ASAP before the sale ends haha

    Are you looking for a new 34 or used? Used prices have dropped quite a bit for them, you can easily score them for $400 if you look. Although that brand new Revelation is hard to pass up for $420 from CRC.

    As for running the 140mm Revelation, it will slacken out the B29 a bit as its A2C is 548mm, and the geo listed on their website is based on a A2C of 524mm.

    Like I said, unless you're in a rush, you can score a deal on the 34 these days.

    I have one on my Covert 29, it's really nice, plush, stiff and super adjustable. No complaints

    That said I'm gonna upgrade to the Pike next month so my Rev will be up for sale. It's the dual air (110/140) RCT3 model, 10 months old at this point and in great shape. Will let it go cheap if yer interested and can wait a month.

    You will have problems with a 1.5 straight steerer on the Bandit 29 tapered HT. I think someone out there makes a 44mm external top that will clear a 1.5 steerer... but it is definitely a rare and obscure product (if it's even available).

    Stick to 1.125 or tapered...

    There's no Revelation 1.5" steerer anyway. It's tapered.
