    Rev 150. Taller A/C, 20mm TA, stiffer, BBMC is good too. If you go u-Turn watch out 'cus they've had problems. Maybe RS has corrected them. Push has the fix tho and a really impressive tune for it. Separated hi and lo speed hits excellent.

    Don't want or need the U-turn or the Talas.I set and forget.

    I'm going bang for the buck. I will probably pick up a new Revelation Team Dual Air 150. Lightweight with the benefits of 20mm. Only downside for me is that it is only available in white.

    TG, what'd you end up getting? I chose the Fox 150 15mm thru axle. Been nothing but pleased. I'd be curious to hear feedback if you chose the Rev.

    Cheers,
    Stephen

    I can't comment on the Revelation directly but I wasn't too happy with my Pike's Dual air spring. Your comment about set and forget has alway's been my motto but I am also 100% into regular maintenance. The Dual Air proved to be less than set and forget - too many o-ring replacements, re-lube intervals. I finally went back to a coil and it has been set & forget. Fox's single fill air systems have been quite reliable but I just don't care for their spring curves.

    Spoke with Daren at PUSH the other day and he highly recommends the Rev 150 Team non U turn. He said PUSH will be selling forks in July and will have BLACK or white Rev team 150's. So I'm holding out for one of theirs!

    Has any worked out from the press releases about the new 2011 revs if the Dual Position Air travel adjustment system is a XX world cup edition only option or will it be on the lesser models too? A rev with a single lever 30mm reduction might be my perfect fork.
