Have seen a few F100X Forx as disc only (my preference), but retailers sale only the F100Xs with the disc & brake bosses. Were the disc only models a special edition or come as part of a complete bike only?

From what I understand, unless things have changed, it is possible to order a bossless version of the fork.

The retailers say they're only sold with bosses and disc tabs, yet I lost a bid to a disc only version on Ebay recently.

The bossless F100X is an OEM only fork. You most likely would have no warranty if purchasing a bossless one off ebay.

you can carefully file the bosses off
don't go deeper than the rest of the leg, best to leave a slightly raised surface and touch it up with paint or a carefully placed decal
considering the torque that v brakes would put on this area of the fork, removing the bosses causes less stress than brakes would

Must be different than the F80X situation, as I ordered an '05 F80X for my Stumpy HT and had the choice between boss and no boss versions.... hmpf.
