    changing fork from Fox 34 performance 120mm to RockShox SID RL 120mm (2019)

    hi guys,
    I think about buying a new fork for my Scott Spark.
    now I have Fox 34 performance grip dumper 120mm
    and I want to change it to SID 120mm

    does anyone make this change ? 34mm legs to 32legs?
    is the fox 34 much stiffer from the new SID?


    thanks

    Why not put the Fox Stepcast 34 120mm fork on your Spark? You won't notice any difference in stiffness and is a step up from the Grip damper.

    the sid RL 120 2019 cost 450 euro the fox is more than 1000 euro

    "You won't notice any difference in stiffness" form fox to sid?

    I want rockshox more than fox. I have on 3 more bikes and its work much better at list what I feel

    I went the other direction (from RockShox SID to Fox 34) and I definitely notice a big difference in the stiffness. The Fox 34 is a lot stiffer than a SID.

    I think what Andy was trying to say is that if you went from a Fox 34 to a Fox Stepcast 34, you wouldn't notice any difference in stiffness.

    Without knowing how big you are/style of riding, I think its hard to give good feedback. I know for my slightly heavy handed riding style and being around 200 pounds, I won't ever look at 32mm fork again.

    Totally agree. I also have a 32mm fork that I would like to swap to a 34mm. But it definitely depends on the rider / riding style / terrain. I tried a long time ago - hated it enough that I haven't tried another once since. They have probably gotten better...
