    Good place to buy Fox in S. Ontario??

    Hey All,

    Wondering if anyone knows of anywhere that has decent prices on Fox Forks in the S. Ontario (Centred around Hamilton) area? I've narrowed down my fork choices to 2 or 3, but of course will have a hard time getting Fox stuff in. I can get it in, but it means shipping to a middle man... a PITA that I'd rather not deal with if price is comparable to U.S. pricing on Fox stuff.

    Thanks for any help you guys can give...

    I'm pretty sure it was "cycle solutions" based in t. that had an excellent selection of forks at the bike show. Tons of fox, rock shox and the prices were pretty good. You might still be able to swing a deal on one(like a bike show price) if you can sweet talk the sales guy. And just a thought. but I live in Hamilton as well and if I couldn't get a good enough deal locally I would definetely drive over to the american side and find a lbs to get me one, you could easily get a fork across the border.

    Hi Tim! It's Sara. This is where I got a bike shipped from and didn't have any problems. Here's a link to their fork page.

    Hey Timmy,

    What exactly were you looking for?

    The former Canadian Fox Distributor (Velocycle) still has some NOS Fox models that they are still trying to clear out.
    They have a 2007 Fox 32 RLC disc only for $599.99.
    I see they even still have some Terra-Logic forks as well.

    Here's the link to the clear out list.

    Also the link Sara posted looks pretty good and their prices include the shipping.

    On a side note, I recently upgraded my suspension on both end.
    Went into one of the LBS here in Niagara (Clarkson Cycle) and they were able to do better then the pricing out of the US.
    The bonus is I didn't have to pay for shipping and I have a full Canadian warranty.

    I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me.

    www.qbike.com is also pretty helpful when scouting the online US retailers for deals.

    Agreed. CS is where I do most of my shopping, if not online.

    Cool, thanks for the heads up everyone. I'm hoping to hit up a couple of the local shops to see what kind of prices they are offering before I go online, as I'm not seeing any crazy deals yet on anything Fox related, so I'm not in a huge hurry or anything.

    Timmo, I'm looking for either an RL or RLC F80 (F100 is fine, I'd just have to adjust the travel, no big deal) but am also considering the Magura Menja for something completely different. I'm really wanting to get a white fork...it sounds silly, but helps with the bit of cosmetic improvements that I plan to make

    Cheers everyone for the help!

    I am in the same position as you Tim. I need a white 80mm fork so was planning on getting the F80 RLC but now I am thinking about getting the F100 RLC just in case I may use the 100mm on a future frame. The cheapest I have seen them sell for in the USA is $585.00 shipped to a USA address. In Canada I'll be paying like $800.00 plus shipping for the same thing so the USA is where I'll be trying to get mine from.

    The seller is in the local area, and had some other Fox stock for sale on Buy Now a few weeks ago, including F80X's and F80's. You could email him and ask if he has any left. This is probably in the grey area for posting rules, I don't profiting from these sale, but the seller does ride with us.

    Be careful with the Velocycles list, what's shipped is often not what is described - at least that's what I hear. On the other hand, I've sent them shocks for rebuild in the past, and they were fine.

    For what it's worth.
    Over the years my experience with Velocycle and dealing with them for everything from new purchases to warranty work to custom valving/rebuilds, I have always had total satisfaction. When they we're unclear on something they actually called me at home to confirm before proceeding.

    Yep, I could just get the fork powder coated, but then it means dis-assembling the fork to it's components, finding a place to get it done, paying for the powder coating, etc...after all is said and done, you'd be better off just buying the colour you actually wanted. Besides, I did a nice tremclad white job on the fork last year, and looked good enough to get me thru the end of the season...so this year I'm going white to begin with
