1. The most important thing about buying a new bike is to make sure it fits. The only way you'll know if the bike is right for you is to size up the bike and make sure that the bike's geometry matches your body's geometry. Ask questions and do some research.

2. If possible, try to find a shop that will let you demo the bike on real dirt. Five minutes in a parking lot won't cut it. You wouldn't buy a car without a real world test drive, and a bike should be no different.
3. Don't belive the hype. Just because your favorite rider or best friend rides a certain bike, that doesn't mean that's the best one for you. Have an open mind and be realistic about your needs and ability.

    need help identifying Rockshox Sid forks

    Hi,

    I have 2 Sid forks and I'd like to identify which model they are. They have never been used. I do have the sticker kit and there is a sticker with the word Race on them. So I assume Sid Race?

    How do I go about identifying which model of Sid these are? What do I measure? Is there a place I can identify them by the bar code label on the steering tube?

    Any help is appreciated.

    2002 forks had a larger leg arch to yours and forks from 2008 and onwards had a flatter leg arch.

    That would put it in the 2003 to 2007 range.

    2006 to 2007 forks had a red adjuster on the bottom of the right leg.

    I'd put it in the 2003 to 2005 range.

    Thanks for that. It sounds about right, when I received them. If I wanted to list them for sale, how do I go about making the measurements folks will want to know? What are the most important info they would like to know?

    And, as a stab in the dark, what price do you think they could fetch? Never been used. Sid Race, 2003-2005 range.

    Thanks
