    Does anybody have an opinion on these forks?

    Hello guys, hows it going?

    Just wandering if anyone knows much about the Fox vanilla R130 fork? Im looking at a set for my dr Jekyll to replace my shermans as i think they'll be more to my liking, Ive only heard good reveiws about the fork but does anybody have any experiences with the fork and any issues or different opinions?

    Thanks.

    I've been sporting the Fox Vanilla RLC 130 this whole year and am very pleased with the fork.

    Thanks for the quick replies guys, how flexy are they? i understand this is hard to guess, but can it be compared with any other fork rigidity wise, i hear theyre the smoothest fork around, is this true?

    They are sturdy, and yes they are smooth.

    Lets put it like this. Even with a standard dropout, most claim they are still as stiff as the z1 with 20mm axle.

    yea that fork would work fine for light trail riding... Street/dj's... not much of a rough trail fork, but it will take hits fine...

    Would you say that the Fox Vanilla 130R would be okay for dirt jumping, cuase it's nice and light.
