Looking at a new set of forks for the carbon HT I'm used to rockshox but like the sound of the dt's. So my question is do i go for. SID xx 100mm or dt swiss xrm twinshot? Has anyone here used both? They be used mainly xc raceing and marathons.

a bike with round rubbery things
another bike with springy bits on it
another bike with too few gears

    The SIDs have been getting better reviews in WMB and MBUK - but make sure you get the right one. Do you want remote hydro lock out? I'd be looking at the RCT3 or RLT.

    I picked up some 100mm World Cup Sids for £400 new. Very light, very well damped. Super happy with them.

    i've noticed the sids have the better reviews, i have poploc on my rebas, i had a play with the hydro and was nice and easy to lock, but i suppose its just another expensive thing to get serviced blah blah.
    i had a set of pace 40's a few years ago and liked them which is why i was looking at the dt swiss.
