    2010 forks already for sale? :shock:
    But did you notice that the Revelation it has 150mm of travel, will this be ok for the frame? :?

    what kind of improvement or feel are you looking for at that price point. Why do you feel the need to upgrade, I guess is the question.

    they are too heavy, dont have enough sensitivity, and arent really stiff enough. i just feel out of control sometimes and would like to be able to tell what the front end is going to do, cos normally its like going in to the unknown, ive had for so long im kinda used to it but still it would be nice to have a bit confidence in the fork

    With the 44 you won't notice much of a weight loss, but with the Reba or the Revelation
    you probably will.
    About stiffnes, the "Power Bulges" on the Revelation probably make the fork stiffer than the 2009 ones.

    So I say, go for the Revelation 2010, reduce them to 130/140mm if you can, and you'll
    have the latest piece of technology on your bike good for XC and a bit of abuse. :)
