Right, I've been specing my Vp - Free and can't decided whether the Fox 40's are worth the extra cash over 888RC2X's. The bike will be used for Free ride and not racing. Here's the spec so far, any recommendations?:

Frame - Anodised
Shock upgrade to Fox DHX5.0 coil
Fox 40 Forks or 888RC2X
Wheels (729's on Hope hubs)
Headset (chris king)
Bar (Race face Diabolus)
Stem (Race Face Diabolus)
Seatpost (Thompson Elite)
Saint Chainset
XT front
XT rear
Shifters (XT)
Tyres (Maxxis High Roller)
Pedals (Crank bros)
Front Brake (hope 6 ti 225 _ for fox 40)
Rear Brake (Hope 6 ti 205mm)
Rear Cassette (SRAM PG 980)
Grips (Race face Diabolus lock on)
Seat (SDG)
Chain (SRAM)

i had the same exact delema recently and i also made a thread exactly like this... but i decided to go with the 40. ive always loved fox and heard amazing things about the 40. a main reason i wanted it cause its under 7 pounds and adjustable down to 6 inches WHOOOOOO! if u've got the extra dough, go for the 40, if not, 888 all the way AND u can get it in white now!
