I finally got sick and tired of my crappy SID, and got a Fox F100X instead Took her out for a first ride and the fork is so much more stable. It is extremely plush and has very good damping. So far, I love the terralogic feature which is great for climbing. Overall, I wasn't too much faster on the climbs over the SID, but over a long distance, I think it will be worth the extra half pound

I think it's just mud. Kinda came out in a rusty colour in the picture.

I haven't gotten around to washing my car for a while. Been doing too much riding lately

Rockys aren't that popular on these Internet boards, but I love how the frame is designed and how the bike rides. Very high quality stuff.

My friend has the scandium Element and he wants to swap the frame for a SC SuperLight or Blur. I think he's just wasting his money

So how much did you pay for the fork? What kind of car is that and can I see some pics of it. Does it have a exhaust. I love imports.
