    just note, the 66 170mm is almost 2" taller than the Breakout+ 170mm. If that's cool with you, or you don't have a 1.5 headtube, go for the 66. If you're picky about bar height, bike geometry or slack headtube angles, then go for the Breakout+. Both have their plusses and minuses.

    I haven't ridden a bike with a Breakout Plus with EVO, but I can tell you that the 2004's with SPV, were very dead feeling. They sure climb great, but on the downhill, the small to medium bump compliance was terrible. You would not use the cliche "buttery smooth" to describe this fork. It is more like "honey smooth". I have heard that the EVO is much better in this regard, and I am curious to try one out, but for bombproof, KY smooth travel, the 66 is the way.
