    Well a Vanilla R would be a very nice upgrade from a pilot, very plush fork. But it does depend on what kind of riding you want to do with it too.

    If your an XC rider like myself, i would recommend a SID. I have an '04 sid team and i love it. Lots of adjustment and super light. Lockout is nice when im on the road to get to the trail. But it only has 80mm of travel which is plenty for my uses but you might want something more

    it's also ridiculously light (2.86 lbs)... I think it's the lightest fork around right now. The next lightest I've seen is the Manitou Skareb Platinum.

    hmm... so the SID team is 500 even, does it have a pop-lock remote by any chance?

    I don't think the race comes with the pop lock remote. You have to get the "Team" to get the pop lock remote.

    You can get a SID for under 500 dollars dont kid yourself. Maybe not the WOrld cup but you can get the Race or the team. Look at last years model. Look on ebay also, i think the remote lockout is unecessary, it just seems like one more thing to break. Its not that hard to reach down and flip a switch.

    Also, when it comes to SID or Reba, for XC racing which would you suggest.

    ....The SID WC could be had for under $500. For XC racing, id say SID.....Reba is more of a trail fork.
