    Labor Day at Bike Bling, Fox 32 F120 RL QR15 disc 1 1/8" 349.99

    Title says it all !!! Seems pretty good. I just bought the RLC version for 600.00 and would rather have saved the $$$.
    I don't know whats the difference is between the RL and RLC except 250.00 lol

    i gotta tell you, i dont really see any discounts same as with PB. they say save up to 50% on hundreds of items but there is no link to anything. they have lowered prices but it has been that way for a while. their 10% off coupon is worthless as realdeal works anytime. i am in process of gathering components for my future bike so i know stuff on many sites pretty well.

    The post was for the Fox Fork ! and from what I saw on the site it's not gonna let ya "double dip" on some already discounted items.
    Like the fork @ $350.00 with an additional 10% off code. That is pretty standard.
    Are ya even lookin for a Fork or just parts in general ?
    If it's a Fox fork your after, which model ? I have looked all over for 2 months so I could possible help ya find what your after.

    Bike Bling is not reliable. Placed an order for an "īn stock" item. A week later I get an email that it is back ordered. That was after I sent three emails asking for order status. So I told them to cancel the order, since it would not arrive in time. They cancelled order and I got a copy of an email to refund my PayPal payment. Nine days later, no refund, no reply to inquiries. Filed a dispute with PayPal, 15 minutes later I was refunded.

    You missed out on the 36 Talas RLC 160 on Competitive Cylist. It was non kashima but they were 2011's for $645. They sold out a couple days ago.

    I totally agree. They had item on the site and later charged me.
    Got an email later saying they ran out of inventory. I got my part eventually, but really slow.
    They need to update their inventory control system

    They are a bit slow to deliver, but I did buy a bike and a stand from them at a good price. I suspect they really don't stock much, but just deliver from distributors shelves. They did not charge my CC until the items actually shipped.

    Bike bling is notorious for not being able to deliver a lot of the stuff they advertise. They do this fox fork closeout every year and people always have problems. Call ahead.

    Would this fork be a dramatic difference over the stock fork on my 2009 Fuel EX 9?

    It has a Fox RP24, 130mm travel, standard QR and non tapered. So I would have to buy at least a new front wheel as well.

    Despite some of the bad things I've heard about BikeBling I went ahead and ordered one of the Fox F120 RL's they have been advertising on the home page. It has arrived and I'm pretty disappointed. They sent me a OEM fork intead of the normal aftermarket fork they picture. No retail box, no manual, and most importantly no Kashima stanchions and it has the OEM style black decals. Boo.

    Sucks on the OE, I guess. I do wish they would put that up, even if it is a brand new, full function/feature item.

    But, the picture does not show Kashima, the description says hard anodized stanchions as well...

    The manual is worthless (I got one with a fork I got a week ago) and available online. And who cares about the box?

    Decals are personal, and I have no issues with you not liking the color. This is MTBR, after all!

    But if you are disappointed, put it on ebay, or return it.

    Good luck!


    And for the other guy posting - I just got a 2012 Float 36 for under $700 shipped. Retail, not OEM. Deals can be found. The TALAS R would have been about $750.

    Hard to tell if it's Kashima or not from the pic but I've never seen a Fox with the normal aftermarket decals that was not Kashima. Still, it's not as pictured and in my opinion it's pretty shady to not tell people that the fork is an OEM model.

    You may not have seen them, but a lot of fox forks do not have Kashima. Lots of OEM, but the models with a designation of R, or RL generally do not have Kashima, where the RLC or RC2 forks do have the coating. More 2011's without than 2012s.

    Pictures, for reference:





    Also, please note that the description shows either:

    Kashima or no they still sent a OEM fork when they pictured the normal aftermarket fork. Good retailers don't pull that crap.

    Other than the box and the different stickers, what's the difference between the OE version vs the retail version of the same forks? Functionally, it's the same, no?

    At the price I figured it was OEM. Plus, you can't find an "RL Fit" on the fox site anywhere...I read via google search that some companies had spec'd such a product as an OEM item.
