I always like seeing clips of the DH trail at Knapsack and this one shows much of the recent rock work.

Time to get new forks

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

I have to either get my Stanchions replaced or buy a new fork.

I believe I will get something new so I have been shopping around and im not finding much to meet my specs.

My bike is a Giant Trance 2011, It needs:
taper steerer
15mm axle
5 inch travel
26 inch wheel

Currently looking at Fox 2015 32 Float 26 120 CTD O/C Evolution $633.00 at TBSM

Looking for suggestions for good alternatives but I am liking the FOX with the CTD?

Thinking of putting them in my road bike.

Fitting a tapered steerer into a straight headtube

I recently scored a set of 2012 RS reba forks for a good price, the only problem was they had a tapered steerer and my old Giant XTC (2003) was setup for a straight steerer. After a little bit of research and measuring I came to the conclusion that the original headset was an internal cup or zero stack and the ID of the headtube was 44mm, this meant I could get a EC44/40 bottom cup from Hope's 'mix and match' range and it would accept the tapered steerer with a stack height of 14mm. when I got it I was really impressed by the quality and it fitted well without a problem.

My Fork and rear shock both need a service. What is your recommendations?
