    Fox 32 27.5 Stepcast fork $299 @ JensonUSA

    I was browsing forks and notice this model was at $299, I thought it was a mistake, but even the performance version is marked at $229.

    Seems like a killer deal for anyone looking to upgrade.

    Saw those, too. Some reasons for the drop (other than Jenson dropping old inventory).

    The SC forks are not going to work with the plus tires so they're probably not selling like they could.

    The $229 Performance is a 27.5 QR axle. Definitely not a common setup these days.

    There's a 15x110 Fox 34 100mm for $289 that's "Ped-elec" tuned...something to do with e-bikes, but not sure what that's about.

    Too bad for Fox, but good for people wanting to drop some weight and save on a a nice fork. I grabbed one of the SC Factory in white for my 26er Anthem that I'm building up. Should about balance out with the EC44 headset and the slight drop from the decreased wheel height.

    Don't forget AJ @ 6%.

    The 34 at bikescomponent.de is quite a deal too. 130mm Rhythm 29er with a grip damper for $230 or so.

    Had to swap decals to orange for vanity

    ^^^www.bike-components.de - cool, and I could see why the green might clash if that was the last part purchased (blue/green combo might be kinda cool, too).

    The reflective green really pops on the Rhythm forks. It was too much for my peepers but on a different bike would be killer. Just glad fox is not pushing white or silver forks, those always look dirty too quickly and do not age well. The black orange/gold era of Fox forks with fit4 or grip dampers are well respected product, no complaints.

    I have been trying to find a new Pike for under $300 for five years but this 34 is a bit lighter and has just enough room to stuff a 3" Minion in it. I would need to find a plus Pike/Yari fork for that and they are going for three times what the Fox is on sale for.

    Anyone know if the regular 9mm QR, 100mmm travel version will fit a B+ 3" tyre? Would have to tend to agree that most these days are looking for fork s with enough clearance to run PLUS if they so choose, hence the slower sales on the SC models and maybe the regular non boost ones.
    One day your life will flash before your eyes, will it be worth watching??
