2011 Fox 40 FIT RC2 Review
5 5

Rode today and it was so nice to get out and ride some dirt again. Spinning in the garage is not quite the same, duh! Finally had the pleasure of putting my new 2011 Fox 40 RC2 through the paces and it has impressed me. The fork is unbelievable. The fork is stiff, tracks incredibly and the valving is worlds different than my 2007 Fox 40 RC2. I am currently using 9 clicks out from full closed on rebound, 8 clicks out from full closed on high speed compression and 9 clicks out from full closed on slow speed compression. These settings seem to be working pretty well. I am going to try 1 more click in from full closed on the rebound and compression and see how that feels. The bike was feeling a little bit bouncy coming down off a bigger hit into a high speed G-out.
I will add more to the review such as longevity, tuning etc. in the future to my blog! www.christiankoblitz.com/blog

Decent Pedal. Mandatory after riding these a few times that you locktite everything on these, traction pins and hardware holding the pedal together. Must remember to grease the spindle and bearings as well. Other than that these are great pedals. I think too many people demand too much from products. You have to maintain your components, simple as that. Most issues come from the mantra ride it and forget it.

Great, stiff, strong, durable, crankset. Have had these on my bike now for about a year and they are holding up great. My bike has a very low bottom bracket height, hitting rocks is inevitable, with several repeated rock hits, these are still staight and true. There are several complaints out about the Isis drive coming loose while riding, while I had the same problems when I first put these on, if you tighten them to the recommended torque settings you will not have any more problems. These need to be really tight, otherwise, they will come loose while riding.

Great Stem. Lightweight and Stiff. I trust this stem, if you look at my profile picture, I need equipment that I can trust, period. I am getting to old to clean my teeth on my front tire if my stem fails. Stems and Handlebars are where the most durability is demanded. If other things fail, I can recover, Stem and bar, your fubared.

Great Pack. I can pack my helmet, chest, spine, leg, arm, armor all on this pack and ride or bike to the top. Get to the top, put on your gear, rip and repeat. Not too bulky as well to double up as a great epic xc pack as well. It also doubles up as great back protection too when not wanting to wear a spine protector. Has been very durable so far.

These are great shifters. The adjustable thumb lever is a very nice feature. Makes for much quiter hand movement. I have short fingers and the adjustable lever position is a very nice feature when you have small hands. They look great but I really don't care about that, they perform great. The zero loss pulley is quite noticable as well compared to the other SRAM shifters. Even though they are pricey, they are worth the extra coin.
