Having the usual winter debate I've had now for a while regarding my forks.
They're a set of Fox32 float from a 2010 Giant XTC29er. Condition is good and all works well, rebound fine, lockout good etc etc.. Couple of lower station marks and a bit of sticker coming off, but pretty good. They've got a 267mm steerer and are tapered and 15mm.
So, the question I have is whether to sell them and buy a new set, or get them serviced. Have forks moved on that much in the past few years that a set of Manitou tower pro or a set of 2014 Reba SL's are now arguably 'better' than the Fox's I have (even if I service them).
The reason I ask is that due to steerer length of 267mm and overall stack height being 271mm i'm completely on the edge of any adjustment and can't change/spacer it at all. Now, I don't know if a spacer or two would make the bike better.. or indeed worse...But currently I don't have the choice/option.
I rekon I could get £150+ for the Foxs ?
Any thought appreciated.
