    I'm wondering if any of you revelation owners has had a chance to really beat on the fork. I'm thinking about getting one for my STP which gets used for everything I ride except dh. The Pike is my second choice, but its kinda expensive and on this bike I'd frankly prefer 85-130 over 95-140.

    Can it hold up to street/jumping/allmountain/ds riding or am I asking to much of the chassis?

    I would suggest the pike or argyle over the Revalation, you need a sturdier chassis. I have seen some use the revalation for slalom and 4x but pros only and really smooth ones at that

    That's what i was afraid of, but I've seen people use the 32 talas for all the same stuff and it's pretty comparable from what people say.

    It would be replacing the stock marzo drop off so any adjustability at all is probably a step up. However I'd hate to get up in the air and think to myself "I wonder if this will be the drop where my fork snaps off and impales me." Argyle would be awesome if it had uturn.
