    It's none of the above.

    The name of the fork refers to the damper inside (RL, RLT, RCT3 etc). With the Specialized brain cartridge inside you'd call it a Rock Shox Sid Brain fork.

    The brain cartridge is a nitrogen charged sealed unit so you're best off leaving that leg intact and just servicing the lower legs and air chamber side of the fork which are standard Rock Shox parts.

    Wr is correct. When the fork is "brained" they take out the cartridge be RL or Rc3t and. Replace it with the brain cartridge. That is how they make a sid or Reba that is non-brained a brain fork.
