    Exclamation looking for a 140mm 29 fork. preferably a pike, but fox possibly also

    hey everyone,

    just like the title says-

    looking for a 140mm 29 fork. preferably a rock shox pike, but possibly a fox fork if the price is right.

    building a primer

    thanks!
    -Seth

    Have you thought about a DVO Diamond? Travel adjustability from 140mm to 160mm with spacers and external adjustment for what Rockshox and Fox use volume spacers for. Plus some of the best dampening in the business rivaling the new Fox 36. And unparalleled customer service. Ronnie the head engineer answers the phone most of the time and is very helpful. He talked me through modding my shim stack for even better mid range response.

    ive heard good things, but honestly im not too interested in boutique suspension brands. just for ease of resources, service, personal familiarity of performance, and all my other bikes have rock shox forks, I'll likely stick with rock shox, but am open to fox also.

    The Diamond also doesn't migrate air into the lower leg like almost all RockShox solo air forks do.
    They are simple to work on. And both sides are cartridges.

    Well that is an option but I donít really wanna start vulture picking the wreckoning parts. Who knows what will be the result of that whole other log travel 29 situation

    And besides that is a dual position 160/130 fork. So not as easy as just changing the air shaft I donít believe.

    Oh crap, didn't know it was a dual. Was gonna suggest you upgrade to something beefier for the evil (yari/lyric) since that seems to be your basher. Either way, i have a next to new 140mm air shaft lying around if you find something on pinkbike or local..

    What is your budget?

    I have a RockShox 29 Reba Ti. Should be ~2012 or so. 20mm axle. I was planning on holding on to it as a backup but for the right price I'd probably be interested in selling it.

    Do you know if it will fit a revelation fork? Thinking about buy a 150mm one, but I am thinking that will be slightly too much for the build I am doing.

    It appears the Revelation and Pike air shafts are different. Revelation 140 part# 11.4018.022.001 and the Pike part # 11.4018.026.001. I'd check with Sram. I know the Pike and Yari can swap airshafts but they're off by 10mm of each other on a 29 fork. A 120 airshaft for a 29 Pike will be 130 on a 29 Yari/Pike29+. All the info is here.

    BTW I have a set of lower legs for a Revelation for 20mm axle. Legs are the same from 2010 to 2017.
