Got my new Rockshox SID delivered this morning. They are soooo light. Can't wait to get them on the bike. Going to upgrade my headset at the same time. Roll on Friday...then I'll be testing it XC style at the weekend. I got these forks as being only 12stone 10lbs I'm 14lbs lighter than I used to be and so I think this fork will be more than robust enough for my ample 5'9" frame. If I'd been much heavier I think I'd have gone for a REBA fork. Plus I like V-brakes...so the SID was a good choice.
