Strengths:    Weight, demping of shocks

Weaknesses:    Not very stiff

Bottom Line:   
It's an amazing fork. My quake air weights 400 gram more, and I can feel the difference. My bike is much lighter than before the SID. Only weak point is the stiffnes, but it works for me, because I get used to it.

Strengths:    Very very light, looks good, several ajustments to get the perfect ride.

Weaknesses:    No lock out. Takes several rides to adjust settings. I'm a light rider (175lbs) and I get a lot of forward flex from the stem down, but not a huge problem.

Bottom Line:   
This is an awesome racing shock, can't beat the weight. If your a heavy rider you may want to consider another shock, due to it's forward flex.

Strengths:    Light adjustable and stong

Weaknesses:    after 2 months of use it started losing travel

Bottom Line:   
its a bit tricky to dial in but once set its good to go after 2 months I lost about 20mm of travel, tore it appart and put new oil in the dampener and put it together agian. after that it was fine. aparently you arnt supposed to let the air below 20 psi in the pure delite, EVER. something about the IFP (internal floating pistion)will get pushed up limiting the total travel. any ways dont let the pressure get below 20 psi in the pure delite and youll be good to go.

SID Solo Air loses pressure

It seems like my fork loses pressure when it bottoms out. Anyone else have this problem? I've replaced the seals but it does not seem to have helped. I think it must be leaking from the negative chamber into the lowers because the lowers become pressurized. This only seems to happen on gnarlier ... Read More »

2014 Rock Shox Sid XX 120mm Solo Air - setting very low in travel

After about 3 months of use and a couple hundred miles, I've noticed that my RS SID XX 120MM solo air sits at about 40-50% sag when the air pressure is set at105psi. I can hold the wheel and pull up on the handlebars and the fork extends to about 10% sag. It returns immediately to the same condition ... Read More »

SID Brain 9mm 29er SA - Conversion Options?

As the title says, I am looking at a SID Brain. 9mm, 29er, Solo Air. Right now I'm running an RCT3 Dual Air 15mm. Love the 15mm TA. Not going back to 9mm. So, what are the options for a Frankenstein fork? DA lowers with SA Brain upper? Swap dampers? Is that possible? Buy new 15mm SA lowers ... Read More »

SID Brain SA upper with DA lower?

Pretty simple. Is there any way to use single air uppers with Dual Air lowers? Alternately, could I remove the Brain Damper from a Solo Air fork and install on a Dual Air fork? Sent from my iPhone using TapatalkRead More »
