    RockShox SID 27.5 in 2014 with straight 1 1/8 steerer availability?

    Does anyone know if RockShox will offer a SID fork in 2014 with a straight steerer? Everyrhing I see seems to point to only tapered steerers. I have a frame I would like to build up that is not built for tapered steerer. I know there are other fork options with straight steerers now, but was looking at a SID for the lower weight it typically offers in the 100mm travel range.

    I was doing the google for this exact thing, and if you insist on RS the 30 Gold TK is your only option. I think my project will see a 26in ebay FOX.

    Yea, I ended up emailing RockShox to ask them directly and they confirmed it. I did some searching on the Internet and picked up a new Formula 33 fork for a good price. If I didn't find that, I would have otherwise gone for a Fox fork. In the end, a desire to go for light weight pushed me to get the Formula ThirtyThree.
