    '12 Revelation 29RLT or '13 Float29 34 Evo?

    Looking to replace the Recon Gold TK on my Felt Edict. Already have the Recon bumped out to 120mm and still not happy w/ the head angle.
    Wanting to make it a bit more of a fun/play/rough trail bike.

    Like the idea of the added stiffness of the 34 platform but WOW the Evo line is not well liked. Is it at least a better damper than the TK?

    Run a Reba on my Ti SS and am pretty happy w/ it, so I'd know a bit of what I was getting w/ the Rev.

    The Edict isnt my main bike so the budget is limited to the used market.

    Pike is out of reach.

    Trace is juuust a touch high but if it's that much better than my other choices, maybe it's worth stretching a bit.

    I'm 170lb, ride and race all over the Midwest and don't shy away the fun lines in the trail.

    Thanks for any help/insight.

    Why are you looking at a 13 float? The 2014 is better.

    It's also more $$. Can't justify the money on a bike that only gets ridden part-time.

    Wife and I both race/ride. Ti SS's, roadies, cx(gravel races), 29er trail bikes. The budget will only handle so much

    Additional info: The Rev is 20mm axle, Fox of course is 15mm.
