Well it's really not my type to go asking for a comparison between forks for a purchase given there are so many factors but I need to chose today. Here is the situation:
I've been waiting for the X-Fusion Trace for a while. I paid a deposit on the fork to my distributor to get it ASAP. We're talking about the RL2 Unicrown tapered version. Last week, it was again put to my attention that the release was pushed back. Given the snow is melting and I want to try my new frame soon I'm reconsidering this purchase.
I went looking for alternatives and found a used Fox Float 34 FIT RLC. I'm not a big fan of Fox because of the rampup of their forks and lack of tunability but this FIT damper looks very good and is tuneable externally and the compression shim stack is accessible. I'm not sure I'll ever go to this depth of tuning but I would like the option and it's one reason I was looking at the Trace in the first place.
So here I am, not having a clue when the Trace will be available and having a proper alternative for cheaper. What do you gurus think of the FIT RLC damper? Would you wait and see of the X-Fusion is released soon or just jump on the Fox?
Any input is appreciated although I do realize nobody can compare the Trace given it's not available...
