    None G2 fork on SF-100

    I was wondering if anyone had any experiance with none G2 geometry on a SF-100.I wanted to get get a new Kashima coated Fox fork and they aren't currently making them with the G2 offset.

    non not none

    I'm not sure anyone has done the non G2 SF-100 thing but they have on other bikes.
    I'm still not convinced the offset is monumental.

    I have a standard 46mm Reba on a Top Fuel 69er that came with a 51 mm offset Fox. It works fine, maybe a little slower with slightly more wheel flop, but it still works. The non-G2 Fox forks are 44 mm offset, so it might be slightly slower with even more wheel flop, but it will still ride like a bike.

    You beat me to it. Proof from last weekend, JHK (left) & Sam (who won, 4th from left):

    So how can you tell from that pic that what you're seeing is not a G2 Reba?
    Worked at Trek/Fisher dealer 2008-2013. Only a little biased.

    You can't. The mechanic for the Subaru-Trek team posted on this recently on the 29er forum:

    "Yes, we use only stock (46mm Reba's) on the team. Seems to be the prefered set-up as they all tried both 51 and 46."
