    120-140mm 29'er forks with 15mm TA?

    Looking for deals but not finding much. A revelation or fox 34 would be ideal - open to used.
    TIA!

    $375 for a OEM Revelation w/ 15 TA is not a deal enough for you? Pretty decent deal to me.

    Yeah I'd be all over that if it were 29". The 29er versions are going for $600 and up.

    My bad and TBH, I see that every damn time and think fantastic deal and miss the non 29er fact - Think this is like the 5th time, don't know why Yeah, fork prices, especially 29ers are going crazy, waiting to see what X-Fusion is looking for the Trace 140mm when it comes available early next year. I'd take a look at the X-Fusion Slide 29er if you only need the 120mm, probably best price for a fork with air and decent features, unless you can find a Minute on sale, but that's scarce these days.

    Get out of my head! Every word of your post could have come from my fingers. I'll keep a look out and get back here if I find anything.

    Yup, that fork is a good deal and a good fork, so pleased with my older Minute 120mm I've had for 4 years now, if I had the $$ to, I'd grab one of those Towers. Manitou Tower Pro 29er QR Fork 2012 at Price Point

    Just ordered one of these today. It's currently on backorder so with the extra 10% off you can get it for $356. I called them before ordering and they should have them in stock on the 13th.

    I've been waiting for the Tower Pro for 2 weeks now. Good to hear that they're expecting them soon, as I've almost cancelled the order and spent double on a Fox...

    This is a good deal, although somewhat short steerer tube.

    Coming from a hardtail, I went with a 120mm fork when building up my first RIP. I see all accounts of "go with 140" when others are giving advice, and now I'm wondering what one could do for me. Is the 34 too much for a 175lb. w/gear rider? That looks like a steal there.

    Very pricey fork, but its on sale!

    Fox Talas 34 29 140

    Still very expensive, but pretty close to top of the line.

    Meh. Owned a 34 Talas, never used the travel adjust feature and always worried about it getting stuck down anyway. Much happier (and lighter) with a Float 34.

    You're running the Float34 on your RIP? How do you like it? Is the 140 just plain old the way to go with the RIP?

    Most definitely not, it will only help to instill confidence in the super chunk, cornering, well pretty much everywhere as it will go where you point it and not deflect as much as a "lesser" fork. I sure do love mine and I only weigh about 167lbs, 175-180lbs geared to ride.
    Personally for your bike I def think the 140mm will be better.
