Thanks for the reply. Right now I am looking at doing any uprades to the fork in the fall at the earliest because all my extra cash is tied up in finishing my Moots build. That and I'm hoping I'll be able to get a good deal on an '08 as people get the '09 forks in stock. If you do go to a SID set at 63mm let me know if you do feel any difference in handling.
