What do you guys think about a Rockshox sid World cup, Fox F80 RLT, or Skareb super? Weight is a concern, but performance is even more of a concern. I have to be able to ride the fork a lot, as I only have one bike. Any concern with reliability issues of the Sid? Thanks guys (and girls) :)

Best function: Fox, best weight: Sid, Skareb is between these two.

What's your weight, are you going to use discs?

I weigh 135 lbs in-form. I am not going to use discs. Maybe I will switch in the future, but I don't have the money now, as my sponser left me :cry:

I would prefer Fox F80 or Manitou Skareb Super if you ride a lot. Stiffer and longer lifetime, easier to maintain than the RS Sid.

My vote would go for the Pace RC38 Race Hollowform. Been using one for a few months on my Litespeed Ti hardtail. Light as anything else out there and super stiff and plush

I looked on the site, but you're the only person I've heard stuff from about the fork. I don't know if I trust the smaller companies quite as much. Hope ya understand, but I'm not just bashing the company or you. :)

no... fair point. I'm UK based so quite a few of the people I ride with use Pace forks.

Pace: http://www.pace-racing.co.uk/

I've had an older Pace RC36 EVO Pro which wasn't stiff at all, but the newer models are much better. My next fork for my Nicolai will probably be the new Pace RC40.

I tryed the fox f80x with inertial valve, the only problem of this fork is that it's a bit heavy compared to other high performance forks.
But when you ride you'll forget those 300 grams in a while.

WELL I HAVE BOTH A FOX AND A PACE

THEY BOTH ARE GOOD BUT ARE WAY DIFFERENT
THE FOX HAS THE BEST SUSPENSION QUALITYS BY FAR
BUT THE PACE IS JUST SO MUCH COOLER

I'm in the US, and I'm afraid about not being able to get work done on the fork, as nobody here has Pace forks. Know where to get a cheap used Fox F80 RLT in the US ?
