    Need suggestions re front suspension

    I'm planning to get a 26" Moots YBB, need to pick out a suitable front suspension fork.

    I'd appreciate some weight weenie suggestions.

    What are the 2-3 best options w emphasis on light weight?

    Thanks in advance..

    Rock Shox SID WC @ 1301gms would be the best value, or a DT Swiss XRC100 at 1170gms if you're under 175 pounds, rated rider weight is 95kg (209 pounds) but it will start to feel a bit flexy if you're over 175 pounds. Another option would be a Magura TS8 SL @1299gms,

    My DT Swiss XRC 100 came in at 1130 grams. This model has the double shot damping & no remote lock out. Very happy with it as its very plush, but like Rocky mentioned if your a heavier rider the Sid I think could be a better choice.

    Pretty happy with both Durin SL and SID. Prefer Durin's action.
