I do appreciate the input; having not tried the Terralogic all information is gratefully received.
My reasons for choosing the F100X are these.
My stolen cycle was an old Titanium DNA with a rigid Pace fork up front with Cook bros/ XTR. A glorious and light ride that woked well both on, and off, road.
I was going to replace this with a modern UK equivalent such as the Omega Predator XL, using a Pace carbon fork and Sram groupset.
However, the build seemed too close to what had been stolen and did not offer much difference to my other ride, which is a steel hardtail Chas Roberts DOGS BOLX with Pace RC36/ Race Face/ XTR.
If, as the journalist (above) recommended, I should live in the 21st century then I thought that the age, and its corresponding technology, should be addressed fully.
The Litespeed offered the best full-sus lite XC solution without venturing into YBB territory.
The F100X seems to have the lockout and anti-bob solution already built in. Additionally, should I want to run a more relaxed trail bike as I get older and more creaky, then it is little cost to change and lengthen travel. Such changes are not possible with the F80X.
Taking heed of your concerns I contacted www.mojo.co.uk
The Terralogic can be de-tuned so that the fork runs comparatively similarly to the RLT. The brass stopper can also be removed and the cartridge changed. I believe that if you do the latter change then either the adjustible rebound or damping is lost. As a rider coming from an eight year old Pace fork to the plushness of the Fox product, I hope that this would be a change that might little affect me.
Either way, if 'push comes to shove' then there are tuneable options. And if I really dislike the fork then it can always be sold.
The F100X does tend to polarise riders. I have my fingers crosed that I'll fall into the 'like-it' categoy.
