my pace forks rc40 are cream cracked so i need to replace them.
CR doing a great deal on the DT Swiss XMC 130 quick release thru bolt
anyone had experance with these forks
also fancy the Rockshox Revelation 426 Air U-Turn 110-140
what do you guys and girls think which ones better fork

"DT Swiss thru bolt - The DT Swiss thru bolt system is 100 % compatible with the quick release standard. Instead of a thin 5mm shaft, the DT Swiss thru bolt is an alloy bolt with a diameter of 9mm on the front hub"
i'm confussed with the above statment fail to see how a 9mm bolt can fit into a 5mm hole that a 5mm shaft sits in

also i have i s mount calipers can i get a convertion to post mount

thanks all in advance :wink:
