    Clydes on F29?

    Has anyone XXL or bigger tried the new Fox 29er fork?

    What do you think?
    How does it compare to...
    ...a Reba?
    ...a Manitou Minute?
    ...a White Brothers Magic 80 QR?
    ...a WB Magic 80/100 20mm TA?

    I've read Chris (speedgoat) and Francois (MTBR) reviews of the fork, and it sounds great... but how about for a 300lb dude on a 29er hardtail?

    I should have one on my bike in a week or two, I'll post something on my thoughts after I've had a chance to put it through a couple of rides.

    Hi,

    from what I heard (all second hand knowledge) the F29 is not clyde friendly.
    It is fox keeping the weight down so much as to impact performance.

    I have been recommended the white brothers F135 with booster springs, pricey but supposedly great.
