    New fork

    I'm in need of a new fork for my Uprising. Currently the bike is kept in the high setting because there are no sustained downhill runs. Just lots of rolling stuff. I don't want to mess up the geo. but rather than get a 26 fork I may as well get 27.5. So currently my150mm revelation A-C is 529mm. I'm looking at the Mattoc, which when run 150mm is 545mm a-c. Only 16 mm which will only slack me out about .75 degrees which I'm fine with. But what about the offset? I will be sticking with a 26 front wheel. Thoughts. Get a good 27.5 that I can swap to my next bike in a year or 2 or find a used 26?

    Right now looking at Mattoc, pike, or Dvo.

    I would also look at the MRP Stage. The 26 and 27.5 are the same fork if I'm not mistaken. Great fork, absolutely love it. The ramp control is super useful.

    Oh and the AC for the Stage is 553 on the 26/27.5 170mm, I'm assuming it's 533 on the 150mm.

    On nice. That's good to know. Gives me lots of options. I'll have to look into those and the pricing of them.

    Thank you
