RS Revs RCT3 Dual Position - Rubbish?

Postby mountaincookie » Fri Dec 28, 2012 15:04 pm

I've just bought a 2012 Rock Shox Revelation 150mm RCT3 Dual Position air fork off CRC for £400. I was reading review after review and got my little brain fuzzeled with all the RLT this and dual air that and dual position other and eventually thought I'd made a good choice.

However...I now see that the dual POSITION forks have issues....whilst the dual air forks are great. I did want dual position - I'll be doing a fair bit of XC as well as Peak district taming....and wanted the flexibility as only going to have one MTB

Have I made a bad choice - anyone got the dual positions and are happy with them, or shall I send them back as soon as they arrive?

Are a good fork, fit them and set them up and ride. They take a bit of time to tune up, but are worth it.

Dual position Lyriks used to have issues but that was a while ago and the now ones are fine. Dual position revelations are great.

Dual position isn't something i'd choose but there's nothing wrong with them. I have standard rev RLs and theyre fantastic.

I read reports of earlier dual position forks feeling a lot more linear compared to the fixed travel version of the fork. Is this still the case or have Rock Shox changed this?
