I am hopefully due to be buying the Niner RIP9 shortly but not sure which fork to get and would like a point of view from someone who weighs more than 15st (which I weighed at 15, right chubber)/
I have 3 contenders
Cheaper than the others,
White brothers magic
Has the longest travel
White brothers fluid.
has a fox style intelligent valve.
I mainly ride technical singletrak, only small drops at moment but hope to get to about 3' or fireroads FAST, when 30mph was pretty dam fast to me and everyone I was screaming fast.
My main concern about the above forks is performing at my weight and minimal flex (which is why I would go for solid axle if available).
The weight of the fork is unimportant, which is why I am excluding FOX's fork, as the weight is supposedly so low it affects performance.
My concern about the Reba is it does not perform as well as the WB.
My concern on the magic is it might be an ultralight XC form, poor performance but a really light weight.
So is the fluid any stronger, or is its performance the same just longer travel without the IMV valve.
What do you reccomend my friends?
