    DT Swiss XMC 130

    I searched on the internet and dt swiss's site, but I could not find the supposed maximum weight on the DT SWISS XMC 130mm. Does anyone know what it is?

    I haven't heard of forks having weight limits. You might try the suspension forum.

    I was told similar to what ubermensch has provided there, very robust stiff fork, I have to say it is the most plush, refined fork I have ever ridden - see sig for pics

    The Lefty is a great bit of engineering to solve something that didn't need solving. Of the few that I've used, when they work they are ok (but not amazing), however just like the Headshok they seem to spend a lot of their lives being rebuilt. All of that great engineering can be temperamental.

    I'm really liking the XMC on the front of my Mojo - that said I've only had it for a few months so can't really comment on reliability. I've got the 15mm axle version, and it seems stiff enough.

    IMO (dont shoot me purely my OPINION)

    The lefty forks are one of the most overpriced forks on the market. Ive never felt one that actually goes through its travel completely smooth. They really do feel like a cheap fork to me

    And the maintenance on them is ridiculous plus take the wheel off to fit to a bike rack you have a lovely greasy exposed axle staring at you.

    Have a try of a XMC 130 you will love it

    Lookin good bud, Just to be safe, take all your air out and see if the crown clears the tire, I know I had to swap tire plans on mine initially

    i am loving the fork, very simple to setup with the single air chamber. Very important though to set up the Compression properly, and rebound. My only issue I have with the fork is the rebound lever is easily moved and I wish it was more like a click like adjustment. Otherwise it has served me well.

    Hi liam2051, I've got myself a DT Swiss XMC 130 and whilst looking around for some info, found your advise about tire clearance. But to be honest I don't get it
    What is actually the problem with tire size?
