I'm looking to get another bike after about 2 years without one. I sold my 2002 RFX about two years ago....
I loved my RFX so I am interested in getting another. My short list is: 2002 RFX, 2005/6 RFX, 2007 RFX, and 2007 El Terremoto. I probably would prefer the longer top tube on the 05/06. I used to run my 02 with a 70mm stem and the cockpit was a little short for climbing. (although, I was running the bike with a 01 Super T and later a 03 Sherman Slider) Fork would be 66 this time around...
My main concern with the 2002 RFX is the fitment of current shocks. Will a Fox DHX 5.0 coil fit a 2002 RFX? What models of Avalanche would fit? Frame size would be a medium.
Another note...The new Ventana El Terremoto geometry seems to be very close to the 2002 RFX geometry. The El T is a little slacker by aboutg .5 degree in HA. I thought that was interesting.
