    Need a new fork for the ARC

    Looking at getting a new for for my ARC. Nothing more than 100mm travel. Was thinking about a FOX but not sure which one. Any other suggestions besides FOX What are you bros riding? Thanks.

    I'm running a Fox Vanilla 100R on mine and it's a bloody ripper. Love it.

    Prob is, you'd need to track down an 06 Vanilla as Im pretty sure the new models aren't tweakable for travel anymore.

    If you can find one then do it. Not that heavy, nice and plush.

    I went fully rigid with a Sibex titanium fork. It dropped over two pounds from the bike.

    r7 platnum 100. Love it! The platform damper works pretty much as advertized once you get it dialed, and you can still ride with meaningful sag (unlike the Fox X).

    I second the R7 Platinum 100. Sick fork on this ARC. SPV works well on the climbs and the fork is plu-uuu-sh coming down. Even after my ARC got stolen, I put an R7 on my new ASR. It is as good as or better than a FOX, IMHO, but lighter. Weighs in like a SID but is way stiffer. I think folks will start coming around to the R7. I will sell you my FOX F100 RLT if you want though.
