bahahaha... ok quantify please.

It can't be worse than the 32mm 29er Fox offerings, I guess.

We have a number of customers (six I can think of out of the North Vancouver store), and a few staff members, who have come off of Reba/Revelation forks AND/or Marzocchi 44 forks (and/or Fox 32mm 29'er forks) who have been blown away by the improved performance of the Fox 34 RLC.

Notably stiffer, plusher, and better damped then the Fox 32mm 29'er offerings or anything that Rockshox or Marzocchi has put out for this application.

...

Personally I have owned the Reba (100mm) & Revelation (120mm), Fox 32 29'er (2009, 2010, 2011), and I have saddle time on both the 44 (120mm and 140mm) and the Revelation (130mm).

The quality of ride and feel on the 34 (saddle time at 140mm, ~3 months on my own fork at 110mm) is night-and-day better then any other product currently on the market.

Still hold the opinion that a 20mm axle would have been better suited for this fork

30mm axle? 40mm axle?

Given that any extra stiffness on a 140mm 29'er fork would be appreciated; I would agree with you.

29'ers really seem to exaggerate flex whether it be a poorly tensioned wheel build or even low vs. high spoke flanges (I notice the difference between a Stans QR hub (w/ 15mm axle), and a King 20mm hub reduced to 15mm).

...

Given that the industry has essentially abandoned all it's other standards (1-1/8" headtube, 73mm threaded BB shell, 135mm QR rear end) for a huge variety of "systems" I don't understand why manufacturer's don't step up axle sizes as well.

Stiffness problems with Inverted forks (Manitou Dorado, Fox?, New Shiver?) would be largely resolved with oversized 30mm or 40mm Alloy axles that would add little weight compared to the current 20mm ones.

Hubs would be slightly heavier (larger bearings) but would have higher flanges as well (even more stiffness).

Galfer already makes oversized rotors to fit Rolhoff hubs so it would be a small step to sell Forks with Hubs and Rotors (Not a new Idea: FOES has been doing it for years).

...Just saying...

I still hold out that Fox will eventually make a 160mm 36 fork for 29'ers.

Won't you be burning through bearings every month due to more lateral flex on the bearings . I am running 98 hope big un hubs on my sx still has the 135 rear spacing never had to change bearings in 13 years .I agree why is Rohloff not making a 150 mm hub ? Heavy is good My sx weighs more than your new wilson ha ha.
