    x-fusion slides? 120mm but internally adjustable, no special tools required and about 30 seconds work apparently.

    I’ve got some on my FF29 and have been really pleased so far.

    X Fusion for me too. They remind me of late nineties bombers. Ace!!

    where’d you get em from Ivan? Only ask as I like the look of the Trace, but can’t find any ‘deals’
    (though I know there a lot cheaper than the competition)

    I got them through my LBS but you should be able to get them through anywhere with an Upgrade account to be honest.

    I’ve decided that I need to put some suspension forks on my SS 29er, as nice as the carbon Niners are, it’s not the ideal bike for rides longer than a couple of hours.

    Any suggestions for 29er forks, 100mm travel and must be black?

    I’ve been looking at Reba’s and can’t decide whether the SIDS are worth the extra mone over the Reba’s?

    Any other suggestions or has anyone seen any good deals kicking about?

    I’ve not been overly impressed with my Rebas, very short service intervals!

    My mate has some 2012 Sid RL QR 100mm travel 180mm ish 1″1/8th steerer white normal crown lockout I think he is after £215 posted for them.

    I bought some Slides not long ago and haven’t been too impressed. At the moment I’m on the verge of playing around with the oil level in the air spring side as I can’t get anywhere near the full 120mm travel, even with all the air released they will only compress just over 100mm. Bought second hand (but clearly hardly used) so no chance of a warranty.

    Otherwise apart from the cheap looking stickers they seem like a nice simple fork.

    st- are you sure the travel hasn’t been reduced internally?

    I think there are a couple of versions of the decals as mine don’t match the ones on the website.

    Ivan, no idea although they were advertised as 120mm travel with no mention of the spacers having been added. The manual that came with the forks gave no indications as to any servicing instructions so at some point i’ll get round to contacting whoever deals with the forks in the UK to ask for some guidance, in fact I should do it now….

    The style of the stickers is fine but the stickers themselves look a bit crude, not an issue and I could always take them off.

    I’m not too sure on the X-Fusion forks, probably just because I don’t really know much about them.

    I love the look of the lefty on Chunky’s bike but they seem pretty expensive and again I don’t really know anything about them.

    Where do you buy lefty forks from?

    I’ve got the Slides on mine too, they work great and are really stiff. It just takes a little time to get the air pressure right, the chart on the fork as a little over sprung. I run a bit less air than recommended for best results.
