Sram and Rockshox vs Shimano and Fox
I've always thought sram as being cheap and reliable, and fox (not so much shimano) as being more of real premium quality and name brand. How can you compare them? I'm not asking which is better, but how each compares.
x.3 = acera
x.4 = alivio
x.5 = deore
x.7 = slx
x.9 = deore xt
xx = xtr
Could you double check whether that comparison is right?
I'm okay with the drivetrain with sram vs shimano.
What about rockshox vs fox? Rockshox are easy to go by (just remember the name) but Fox floats, 32's, etc... are really confusing. Is there an easy way to remember them?
Vivid Air =
Monarch Plus =
I don't believe it makes sense to do the "equals" thing. You can't necessarily match the Fox and RockShox lineups one-for-one. I'm not even really sure what the point would be of that exercise.
FWIW, I find RockShox' lineup confusing as all heck. They have too many variations of each model, and it gets worse if you count the OEM versions.
Reba/SID = 32

Fox doesnt have a fork to compete with every RS like sram/shimano bc Fox doesnt bother with entry level
XX= XTR race
i agree with the earlier post saying there's really no point to this - but if i were to compare i would say talas = 2 position rather than u-turn. plus the revelation is a 32. and fox open bath forks are pretty entry level.
