    Stepcast 34 with Grip 2????

    Any knowledge if the Fox 34 stepcast will get an update with the Grip 2 damper? When does Fox release updates...Spring?

    The 2020 models were released early summer. I'd expect the 2021 to be the same.

    I was checking on Avalanche and they'll do an open bath cart for the 34 sc. That's my next step if the tune I'm getting doesn't meet my expectations.

    You're turning black metallic.

    Do you think it's worth throwing $500 at a 34 SC?
    I have one....it works well...and it's light.
    But if I was going to throw that kind of money....I would just buy a Mattoc Pro that works great and is stiffer....and put up with the extra 1/3 lb

    Have you ridden the SC34 with the Fit4 damper?
    Rigid SS 29er
    SS 29+
    Fat Lefty
    SS cyclocross
    Full Sus 29er (Yuck)

    Stop asking how much it weighs and just go ride it.

    Depends on if yours works well. If it already works well, probably not.

    No but do have a 36 fit 4 that I Vorsprunged and so much more improved. Hoping not to spend the extra $$ next go around.

    I thought not.

    The SC34 is a fork for a very different application than your 36. It's an XC fork.

    It's impossible to predict what Fox will do next, but I doubt there's a SC34 with the Grip2 damper in the works. Maybe the regular 34 (?) But that's at least 6-10 months out. I just don't see them going that direction.

    No lockout on an XC fork?
