I actually just switched over to the identiti rebate XL. I’m glad I didn’t get anything shorter. I can tell when manually it’s juuuuust slightly shorter to the ground so I have to pull up a little harder

Hi everyone, just bought some rigid forks for my bike, sort of DJ/trials hybrid going on so think rigid is going to make some trials tech a bit easier. Have the Rebate XLs, I was wondering for ages which length to get, coming from 480mm a2c Rebas I thought the 465mm XLs would be a better fit.

But does anyone reckon for street trials I should have picked the shorter 450mm ones? Idk what either will feel like, havent got it on yet but I guess I'm still technically going to a shorter fork no matter which I got... Looking forward to seeing what it feels like though will post pictures soon!!Cool Cool

This all depends on the frame you’re putting it on. Most frames will want to keep the bottom bracket height the same as your axles. Some older frames run a bb drop of several millimeters.
I’ve run rigid from 425mm up to 465mm…..but on several different frames.
Perfect example is my Octane One Void running a 450mm, perfect for that frame.

The old Mutant X-Ray never lets me down. Still one of my favorite bikes.

I built this p1 up few years back as a basic street cruiser. Have the standard Rebates on it. Planning upcoming to ride some trails, dirt jumps with it so will see how I like it with standards.
