Strengths:    The fork is light weight and stiff, and after a full season of abuse it is still holding up to me. The fork preforms above my expectations over roots, and bumps. It is simple to adjust and the tech support from fox is great. I have hit 5 foot drops with the fork, and have not been able to bottom it. It has preformed well above my expectations, but when purchasing a FOX, thats kinda what you get.

Weaknesses:    The only pain with this fork, is doing the preventive maintenance. It asks you to replace seals, and also keep the fork very clean, but by doing as the manual says, my fork has had no issues what so ever.

Bottom Line:   
Great fork overall, it is my first FOX front shock that I am running, and will not be my last.

Strengths:    Like butter when it is working right!

Weaknesses:    Seals don't last

Bottom Line:   
Bought this fork as an upgrade and have had nothing but problems with it. The seals keep blowing out and have had to send it back to Fox 3 times. The fork is top-notch when its working, but it has been a major disappointment. Heard the stock seals should be replaced with Enduro seals to make it more reliable. If this is true, Fox should be using these type of seals from the git-go to alleviate this problem.

2013 Fox Float 29 CTD Evo or Factory vs 2012 32 FLOAT 29 100 FIT RLC

My new 2013 Giant Anthem X1 29'er came with Fox Float 29 EVO CTD forks. I miss the low speed compression adjustment and lockout threshold adjust I had on my 2009 32 RLC 100. I found these features useful. Unlike the Evolution fork, the Factory CTD fork has 3 Trail settings for low speed compressi ... Read More »

Fox 32 FLOAT 29 80mm FIT RLC to 100mm?

Can the standard 2012 32 FLOAT 29 80 FIT RLC be converted to 100mm by removing the spacer, or are the stanchions of the 80mm shorter than the stock 100mm fork? I know the 100mm can be setup as 80mm, but I don't if the reverse is possible. Thanks!Read More »
