    sid or fox

    Well my dad is building up a new bike, he's 6'4 220 pounds and losing more weight. He was thinking about geting the SID but I thought that might be a little to light wieght for him. I think he should get a Fox 100 RLT. What are your thoughts.

    Holy **** get the Fox. You will save yourself lots of money on rebuilds and the extra stiffness will be a godsend. Still wont be as stiff as a lefty but better.

    F O X!

    SIDs are known for their flex and mediocre service intervals.
    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.

    i got a SID on my hardtailit and i love but i hear good things about the fox. The Santacruz superlight i just ordered comes with the Fox, so i'll have a good way to compare performance in a few days.
