    New question here. Fork Off: Cane Creek Helm MKII vs. Fox 34 GRIP2 140mm

    Got a new 29" trail build coming together and I'm trying to make a decision between these two fork options. Gotta say I've had an amazing time riding CC shocks so I'm rather curious to give their forks a go.

    That said despite the CC being cheaper up front it would end up costing considerably more in the long term with rebuilds and weighs a pretty hefty ~230g extra although I'm certainly the type of person to really appreciate fine tuning suspension configurations.

    Info on the CC is so sparse particularly on the new MKII I'm anxious to take the plunge.

    Should I settle for the tried and true Fox or gamble on the CC? Someone flip a coin and put me out of my misery.

    I vote for the Cane Creek.

    Why are the servicing costs more?

    CC service interval is shorter at 100 hours vs. Fox's 125 hours. Getting a rebuild on my CC shock was usually ~25-50% more costly compared to my Fox shocks.
