    Light 100mm XC fork choices?

    I have searched sites, and google, and this forum, but I'm having a heck of a time finding all of the 27.5 XC forks. I think it is mostly because the 2014 stuff isn't up on the websites yet. But does anyone have the quick run down of what is out there?

    I know Fox has one as their website is up to date. Rock Shox has a SID in there, but it was a pain to find. SR Suntour will have a version of their carbon fork in 27.5 according to a facebook page. X-Fusion doesn't even have 100mm forks according to their website. As per that site the Velvet is a 140mm travel fork. What's up with the DT Swiss forks on the Giant 27.5 XTC prototypes in the world cup?

    Thanks.

    You might be better served getting a 26" Fox fork, which fits 650 easily. That's what I have been running for three years now. My next bike is coming with a 100mm X-Fusion Velvet, however. It's a 2013 Jamis Nemesis.

    I'm not sure that SR Suntour's fork had hit stateside yet. If it has, let me know who your source is!

    Cannondale Lefty, some model forks work 27.5" without modification.
