    Questions on Forks for 2009 Models

    Hello all,

    Do you guys prefer:

    1- what color decals? Fox Blue or black & white?
    2- what dropouts? Standard 9mm or 15QR on 32mm forx?

    Thanks in advance.

    The white Fox forks look great. I think that would go well with most of your color offerings.

    And I'd definitely opt for the 15QR - although, what wheels/hubs would you guys have that work with that?

    I hope RS forks will still be an option.. I love my pike. Adding the revelation to the lineup would be good as well..

    I'd like to see xcl builds with rp23(or monarch)/140mm Revelation w/ maxle light personally...
    Otherwise, black and white decals. Definitely 15mm TA for any 32's. My ideal bike from what I've seen? Orange XCL with white Revelation ('09 w TA) or TALAS, Full XT and Continental Mountain King tires. I'm salivating just thinking about it.

    I just hate to see ANOTHER axle standard.. anything other than shimano hubs aren't going to be an option for a while. There's nothing wrong with 20mm.. fox should have stepped up to the plate and made a 20mm option for their 32 forks.

    Just my opinion..

    DT Swiss will have 15mm hubs in may, and Hope technology said they will have them very fast.

    That was exactly my thought.. why not just go to 20mm quick release on the 32's. Just like on their 36's. That has got to be an option that Fox is playing with.
