    WTB: 120/130 mm Fox 29/27.5+ Boost (Shorter offset if possible)

    WTB: 120/130 mm, 29/27.5+ Fox Fork, 110x15mm boost, prefer 44/46 offset especially in 130, at least 7.5 steerer. (Would also maybe consider a newer revelation or pike if it was the right specs and deal, but prefer fox)

    Trying to replace a rhythm 34 on my hardtail, anyone in the conUSA or canuckistan have anything in solid working condition or better for me?
    Do I detect a lot of anger flowing around this place? Kind of like a pubescent volatility, some angst, a lot of I'm-sixteen-and-angry-at-my-father syndrome?

    fuck that noise.

    gmen.

    I had a 27.5 x 3.0 in a non-boost Fox 34 Talas and I didn't die. I'm on the hunt for something similar as you are now too, 130-140 travel for a new project that's in the stand.

    Are you looking to sell that Rhythm fork?

    If it's a 27. 5 (not 27.5+) boost, tapered, I may be interested. Travel?

    Unfortunately it’s a 29/27.5+. But eventually would sell, full disclosure it’s got a weird click going on, not the CSU and still persisting after lower service. Can’t decide if it’s just the rebound settings and a noisy damper or something actual.

    This isn't the Fox fork you were asking for, but in case it's of interest -

    Stumbled across this Manitou Mattoc 27.5+ fork on wiggle, for $192 ($172 after code). Mtbr reviews say it is actually a comp model, not pro, but who knows what you'll actually get from wiggle / CRC.

    Don’t know anything about Manitou? Any good thought they were just spec’d On lower end bikes ala Suntour, am I totally wrong?

    I've had several Manitou forks over the years, but none of their rear shocks. Some were pretty good (R7, Minute), some weren't (Black). They have a great reputation for standing behind warranty issues. They had a period of manufacturing issues (like Marzocchi) and got bought out (like Marzocchi) and hopefully are better now. I would generally think of them as higher quality than Suntour. They definitely go on sale for stupid cheap sometimes.

    I was looking at the Mattoc because of its adjustability in some of its variants: high and low speed compression, some interesting valving that is supposed to address mid stroke behavior, and a separate end of travel compression adjustment that doesn't affect HSC or LSC. Mtbr is full of Manitou fans, but YMMV of course.
