It's a slightly cheaper and slightly lighter Float. They apparently cut corners on the travel rod, which uses a roll pin to drop travel instead of the Float spacer system. You can drop travel on F series forks but not raise them. The Fox tech section shows how this is done. The F series chassis has little to no webbing reinforcement in the arch...and possibly other areas that we can't easily detect. The Float will probably be a tiny bit stiffer as a result. The F isn't an OEM fork or such, but it's sort of like that IMO. I can't read Fox's mind, but it seems to me that the F series was perhaps a cost cutting effort.Pedalfaraway said:Sorry if this sounds ignorant but what is the Difference between a float and an f series fork?? I always thought f100 meant Float 100.
Mine is an 08 comp and spec. says it's a float on the website but is an F series on the bike as well. Also noticed that the 08 elite says its a float and 09 elite is a talas now? Also another misprint maybe is the 09's being listed as having a 2.2 front tire in the book and the web when i've seen a comp and expert both with 2.0 fronts on the floor at some lbs'sSwthrtsuzy said:It's an F series. That's not a II, it's a sideways F. If you look closely at it, the word "series" is on the stem of the F. According to Specialized, it's supposed to be a Float, but it's not. Mine's like that, too.
