Ratings & Reviews
Smooth, easy to set-up and increases confidence on the trails
Just put a set of Fox Factory 34 -150's on my 2015 Trance 1 replacing the original RockShox dual position 32- 120/140 revelations. These are so much better. They are easy and quick to set up and customise. The result is they are really smooth over small fast bumps and take bigger hits comfortably. The front end stays to the ground in rough cornering and makes you very confident that its not going to lose traction. The instructions that come with it are good for set up, but average for installing. The extra instructions required (via YouTube) are how to cut the stem with a hacksaw to the right length and finding how to install the star nut in the stem. It took one to two hours I guess to do the change-over.
Fox SC 34! It's a thumbs up!
Recently installed the fox SC 34 on my trek Roscoe hardtail with 27.5 * 2.6 tires. The fork came with instruction booklet (not that useful), setup guide (very useful), star nut, brake cable guide and a shinny fox sticker. It does not include the fork crown race so either remove from old fork and buy new one.
My first test ride was with the recommended setup as advised in the guide, not a bad base line to start with but I'm sure further tuning to come as I get accustomed to the new fork. Initial feel of the fork is how sturdy it is, but not stiff. It tracks nicely over trails littered with tree roots, without giving you that skipping feeling. A section of the trail is a rocky hill climb, I had the fork in full open mode yet the pedaling feels like I have locked the fork, but the traction feels like the fork is open, its amazing how this fork can give you this feeling.
While the price tag screams expensive, the riding experience screams excitement.
