    R7 MRD TPC or SID Race?

    Those are the two options i am looking at for a fork for my bike. The R7 is lighter and slighty cheaper, however i have not heard much about those forks recently here on the forum. I know the SID is a solid performer, so it all comes down to how well i R7 will perform. Are the two forks close or should i just stick with the SID?

    Thanks

    R7 all the way!!! I'd take the TPC over motion control any day, and the Noble Spring system is far easier to set up than the Dual Air, which can be kinda finicky at such a small volume, IMO...

    See if you can find a deal on an Absolute model...

    i run an r7 comp, and its the simplest of all r7s with fluid flow damping - no complaints so far, i'm rather surprised at how well it performs and how stiff it is given its weight...

    rockshox dual air is plenty easy to setup..

    TPC is sooo buttery smooth though. ive owned a reba (MC+ floodgate) and a tora (just MC).. the tpc fork i rode felt more in control and smoother.. plus you can tune it to your hearts delight with simple shims.
