    Fox F29 Fit RL 100mm fork for Clyde?

    All if the cx bikes I am looking at: Trek Superfly Carbon and stumpjumper ht EVO all have this fork. I am used to a lefty fork and how stiff it is.

    In 5'11" and 300lbs

    Is this Fox fork A good fork for my size? Anyone have this fork?

    that being said I know jeffj has ridden that and a number of other forks and said he liked it much better then the reba and just under the zokes micro ti

    I'd hit him up here on MTBR and get some input from him

    If you're 300 lbs, I would say a custom suspension fork tune is in order. Better be sure the fork is customized to your weight. My coworker and tech ordered his fox fork custom from Fox as he's 285lbs - it's a DJ fork made for XC.
