Motaro, what about the geometry of your Epic with the Sid. The frame has been designed for higher forks, like Fox's or Reba's.

Is it a problem? What about the feeling with the bike in technical downhills?

Thanks.


its work fine with 80 or 100 mm fork so far i know new epic frame has been designed for 90 mm fox fork

its more racy now and because of the shorter travel it steers very accurate, in downhills its less 'comfy' but i nrode an s-works myself at a testday with sid and f100 i liked the sid more then the fox.
same problem with an alma with f100rl thats like overkill for such a bike a 80mm would be much nicer to ride

Will you save any weight by switching to a extralite seatpost? seems quite heavy at 30,9x360mm - 168 grams. Your bike deserves something light like maybe AX Lightness :-)

Where did you get those ti bolt-on's?? thanks!
