Sorry if this has been gone over before .....
My '06 Xcaliber frame cracked and was promptly replaced by a current year Paragon model frame. Thanks, Fisher!
This new frame is optimized to have the G2 fork offset (51mm?). Apparently, Fisher dealers can buy theses G2 Fox forks directly from Fox with my cost being around $740. My LBS, who I bought my Xcaliber from, no longer deals with Trek/Fisher, so we're not even sure if we can get one of these in. They can get the standard offset F29 for quite a bit less than the G2 model.
What would I be missing out on by not installing the proprietary Fox/Fisher fork? I've been told a 46mm fork would "steer slower" and would be "floppy" ... not sure what that means.
Thanks in advance for your help!
