Also mate, the Cove came with a Fox Float RP23. How is this on the scale of quality rear shocks? there are so many and it's very confusing, not to mention I wouldn't know much difference between a crappy shock and a good one ayt least in terms of performance. I also have a piggyback Marzocchi Roco TST R

So this is my lockdown build. Acquired the frame just before lockdown.

The fork is a 36 talas, I am searching for a top cap so that I can convert it to a float. Current travel is at 130mm
I still need to cut the steerer, and fit brake(s).
Wheels, crank, fork, ss conversion and tyres I had. I only bought the frame, bars and pedals. Still looking for a spank stem as well. Rode it down my street and its pretty quick.

The Rp23 is just okay. It doesn’t have much air volume. I do not think you can fit a better shock on it, if you do I would be interested.

As far as my lightest bike I have never weighed them. I have a hardtail dirtjump it would be the lightest

I love the Totem, especially since you found one with the owly creatures. I also love that color red (does the paint have a name?)

How you liking them? I just got a set, not sure when I'll be able to try them out though.

Tubes or tubeless? What pressures?

Hi guys,

Just wanted to ask about this fork:


It is a Fox Float 36 RC2 (Air). It is the first one I remember seeing (of this color/era) or having and it is lovely.

I can't find any that look similar for sale, and was wondering if the air version wasn't as popular? because I own two of the Oil-and-Coil version.

Thanks! Rosewheel

Oh man, I had this exact fork, 2010 I believe. One of the best I've ever owned, wish I still had it....and the SodaS for that matter. Damn I hate selling bikes.....
