Any better options?...

About to pull the trigger on the On One Whippet frame (£299.99) and the Rockshox Sid Team 80mm forks (£499.00).
Is there anything else out there (26") that I should maybe consider?
Usage would be fun/XC racing...

Cheers,

Paul

    Cost a bit more (but only probably £10-20), but these:

    Are top of the line, have a maxle and Carbon crown steerer, and the XX damper too. Ive bought from these guys before without issue - very good.

    Is there much difference between the Rockshox Sid Team 80mm forks at £499 and the Rockshox Sid RLT TI 100mm at £399? Apart from the screaming obvious! :wink:
    I thought 100mm may be of more use than the 80mm, but depends on how the shock will react...
    I guess they both need the Pop loc to be bought seperately, too.

  • you could probably stick a spacer in the 100mm to take it to 80mm, or take one out of the 80mm to take it to 100mm... will have to check with the sellers to see if they are OEM forks thoug..
