    Good deal on 120-140mm 29er fork with a 15mm axle???

    Lots of great deals on 20mm revelations out there but doe anyone know of a good deal on a fork that's 120-140mm of travel with a 15mm axle?


    Is the stiffness of a 20mm noticeably greater than a 15mm anyway?

    What do you consider a good deal? There's a Manitou Tower Pro with tapered steerer and 15mm axle for $430 bucks on ebay

    Yeah, don't know much about those forks but the price sounds good. Would be cool to have something I could extend out to 140mm if I so chose. Wonder how stiff they are?

    They're excellent forks but not travel adjustable. Probably the most tuneable fork you can get. Ive been running one at 120mm and haven't noticed any flex. I'm about 205 lbs right now.

    Tryon Bikes just have me a quote for an X-Fusion Trace RL2 for $480. Looks like a great fork -- internally adjustable up to 140mm. A little heavier than a Reba but with 34mm stantions and a single-piece forged crown/steerer. I think it also has remote lockout too.

    Do you have a definite ETA on the fork? It keeps getting pushed back and back.

    That's awesome, x-Fusion looks like it'll be my choice if I ca get hold of one for that price. Talked to a guy at Tryon over the phone and he wouldn't give me any info on it, said it would be best for me to email. So I'm waiting for him to get back to me.

    Looks like the fox 34 for 1/2 off and it's even a little bit lighter, and it comes in black!

    Yeah, it looks like a great fork. I have a line on a black Reba that I can pick up next week. If I didn't have this already set up, I would definitely be ordering an X-Fusion. Reviews are positive, and the internal travel adjust goes from 80 to 140mm. Could potentially use it on many different frames over the years.

    Rochester, NY. Sounds like the X-Fusion Trace and other 29er forks in this realm are on back order for a few weeks or so.

    I have seen other guys on MTBR post up comments about having positive experiences with Tryon Bikes.

    Just got a reply from them (Tryon). They said the $490 price was misquoted and that they could sell it to me for $584 which is 20percent off retail. Not as great of a deal but still not bad. I'm waiting for a response regarding availability.

    I am not so sure the line I had on a Reba will pan out. Anyone have any new info on when X-Fusion trace forks will appear, or where to find good prices on a Reba or White Brothers Loop? 29er, tapered, 15mm, 100-120mm (or adjustable), preferably black.
