    Epic WC fork swap?

    To slaken it out a bit

    Fox 32 SC (100mm 55 degree offset)

    Fox 34 SC (120mm 41 degree offset)

    Votes and why:

    Longer travel and reduced offset both work in the same direction to increase trail, which favors descending and high speeds over climbing and slow/tight maneuverability. If that's what you want, you're going in the right direction.
    What, me worry?

    Thatís what I was thinking. But... a fox 32 SC is on back order. And throwing a grand at 15 percent change... ummmm. Canceled my order.

    My search for an older RS sid 120 w/same 46 OS but 120. Maybe a RTC3. At a fraction of the price. Or leave well enough alone and save for a dedicated.

    Just received and installed a Sid rct3 120mm. I opted for a late model primarily because the offset (46) was the same at my current Sid Brain 95mm. I didnít want to compound the additional OS with increased travel and lose a large portion of my steering response. I now need to mess with stem length/height after my inaugural run.
