So after two years my RS1's are kaput. (LBS confirms this).I have a 2016 Cube Reaction Pro SLT. Can I replace this fork with a SID or Fox. Or is it not as simple as that.The front hub on my wheel has:110x12mm Predictive Steering®. Is this a factor I need to consider?

    Yes, I've not seen rs1 which is not tapered, the current standard.

    The axle is unique to that fork so you will either need a new wheel or replace the hub and possibly spokes.
  • Thanks 02gf74. New forks and wheel is what I was kinda thinking.

    Forks dead after 2 years? What exactly is wrong with them?
    Is your LBS saying the forks are kaput or that they cannot repair them?

    Have you got the SRAM hub, or another one? Some can be converted, so you may not need a new hub/wheel.

    110x12mm Predictive Steering®.
    I thought that was 15x100?

  • They have said that there is too many issues with them and if i send them off to TF Tuned to be sorted will cost me an arm and a leg.

    Ask them for an estimate. They might charge you for stripping down the fork and giving you an estimate, even if the result is that you don't go ahead. They won't do this for nothing. So talk to them. I did this with them on a Rockshox Reverb that was not worth repairing as the repair charge was more than I could buy a replacement for in the sales.

    Maybe an ideal opportunity to learn how it service the, yourself?

    Not difficult, and if the fork is truly scrap then
    1/ Its a good one to practice on
    2/ You can split it and sell the good bits for spares

    That said a friend is looking for a 'spares or repairs' RS1 as he has another that needs a few new bits.
