I am very tempted to try 120mm forks on my Superlight but can't see too many options.
I have Fox FIT 100 RLC's at the moment which I like and 120 versions can be had for £450. This is about the best deal I could expect for Fox I think. Only real problem is that they are reasonably heavy (relatively speaking) and if I were to spend the extra pennies on new forks I would want to drop some weight over the Fox FIT 100 RLC's I currently have.
Does anyone have a real weight for a 120mm Fox FIT RLC's with bolt through?
So my thinking is that if I want something lighter than Fox FIT 120's and reasonably priced then that pretty much only leaves SIDS. It would also seem that only the XX and World cups would drop any real weight over my Fox FIT 100 RLC's when considering the 120mm travel and bolt through (I'd like to stick with 15mm through axle if possible).
How light are 15mm thru axle 120mm SIDS in the various guises and which of the confusing range should I be after?
Magura Durin's (or the new renamed forks) would be lovely but I can't see these particularly cheap anywhere and the 15mm thru axle versions seem hard to come by...
Formula forks look nice but are pricey and I am yet to see proper weights or thorough reviews.
Marzocchi are heavy and I could not handle living with a DT Swiss fork. A lefty would be great in an ideal world but I can't justify the cost of a new wheel build and the out right cost of the properly light Leftys.
Cheap as possible
Lighter than Fox FIT 100 RLC's
Not fussed on any lockouts bar or otherwise
Have I pretty much summed it up? Does anyone have any real world weights of various forks with 120mm travel?
Many thanks, DanW
The SID XX WC is quoted at 1366g at 120mm with tapered steerer, so will be a little heavier with a plain 1 1/8th, about the same as the Float CTD at a guess as it tends to add about 100-150g.
Budget 26" HT build viewtopic.php?f=10&t=110956
That said, does anyone have real weights for the new Fox CTD forks in any of the different flavours?
Any real weights for 2012 or 2013 SID's with 120mm travel and 15mm lowers
