What is the Fox equivalent to a RS Revelation?

Not really. The revelation share a lot of similarities to the Pike. It's closer to a Fox 34 Performance.

Oh, I didnt realize that the newer ones have 35mm stanchions, Then yes the 34 would be.

New model 35mm revelation might have the chassis stiffness, but I'd say the grip damper in the lowest end 34's is nicer than the motion control found in the revelation. I don't think there's a clear equivalent, either you get similar chassis and worse damping, or you get the charger damper on the pike and spend more $$ than a 34.

34 chassis can take quite a beating, and the oil volume in the grip dampers is pretty high and feels consistent. I have a a couple people who've put in hundreds of hours between services and they still feel great.

true. Grip damper is actually pretty great, but i think you can get a revelation with the charger damper these days as well, so all in all they are both pretty decent forks

Working on an 11 Giant Reign. Previous owner has removed the front derailure and 2 of the 3 chainrings up front. Leaving the 32t middle ring. The bike pedals well but as soon as you run into a steep climb where you have to get hard on the pedals, the chain drops off the front. Running a slx rear derailure. The owner doesnt really want to go back to 3 rings up front. What am I missing?
Chain too long?
Need a guide?
Add a bash guard to the 3rd ring?

If it's still the original 32t ring from the 3x set-up, swap it for a NW style chainring and you should be good to go.

Well if the chain has nevery been shortened it about 10 links too long (based on a 42t outer). Check chain length

Working on SRAM red hydro and the brake lever won’t squeeze. It is almost like there is nowhere for the fluid to travel. Tried bleeding and it is the same story. The syringes at both the lever and caliper can’t push fluid through the system. Any ideas?

2018 Lyrik RCT3 Charger Damper 2 with 2019 Air spring....

Do I need a 2019 service kit to use the o-rings for the 2019 air spring or will the 2018 service kit be fine?
Just doing an order and figuring out exactly what I'll need in the future.

Thanks!
