X-Fusion Enix RL 650b?
Any info out there on the X-Fusion Enix fork able to go 650b? Looks to be very similar to the Fusion, so I am hoping its a go. Please let me know.

Yes, 650b is fine. X-Fusion recommends installing a bottom out spacer to assure you don't have tire to crown contact at full compression.

Enix vs. Velvet
Does anybody know the differences between the Enix and the Velvet? When I checked the X-Fusion site the specs seem pretty much identical. The Velvet does list a lighter weight but what else am I missing?
Inrideo est vita
The Enix has a few "limitations"... it is only 9mm axle, only 1 1/8" steerer tubes and only 120mm of travel (max).
The Velvet has 9 or 15mm axles; 1 1/8", tapered and even 1.5" steerer tubes. It is also adjustable to 140mm.
Other differences are the crown: lighter on the Velvet. Also the lowers are slightly different, but it's pretty minimal.
The damping and air springs are largely the same.
If the Enix has the features you need, it is a great deal. They work really well, I have one on one of my bikes.
Canadian distribution: X-Fusion Shox, Rand Momentum lube and Canadian Shield fenders.
Crap, I was pretty much ready to click the button and buy a velvet, but I don't really need tapered, 15mm, 140travel, etc. Now I will have to go back to a serious debate between my weight weenie and tight wad.
