    Rock shox SID vs Fox Evo 29 CTD

    I'm looking for a new bike with either Fox Float Evo 29 CTD fork or Rock Shox SID!

    After using google for a while my impression is that FOX do a better allround forks for 29er then RockShox due to using specific 29 forks instead of a extended 26" fork like Rock Shox.

    How much will I notice this using the bike on trails and mostly in XC/Marathon racing? Is the Fox Evo CTD fork good enough or do I have to get the Fox FIT (Remote/Performance etc) Ctd fork?

    FWIW, the RS 32mm stanchion 29er forks seems to be stiffer than Fox's 32mm stanchion 29er forks.

    There is discussion on this in the Suspension section. The 2012 RS is an excellent fork as a dual air adjustable. RS has made everything solo air for 2013 and it's a downgrade for many people. Fox has also removed tunability for 2013 by going to 3 fixed setting. Manitou or X-Fusion are options.
