the sid is fantastic! I have the 98 Judy SL on a bike that's pending sale right now, and it to has some corrosion and some fading on the paint but theese have still the most beautiful lower legs known by man, and I don't thought of the Judy as more flexy then my Skareb acctually. But I'm gonna try finding me a Fox fork heard that they are rock solid...
I Rode the 93 S-works stumpjumper back in the days and it was just repainted and fitted with some judy fork in 97-8 and it was truly the best handling bike I ever had. Then my friend borrowed it and cracked it (he was a fat bastard so)
I can tell the Fox is great, very stiff indeed, and reliable.
I made my first ride today with te Sid. It was the first ride with a Sid ever, and I thought it was great. Very pluche, but not to jumpy.
I think it is a keeper. If it ever breaks, I'll buy a new one. That brings me straight to the minor part of it, I think it will break down any day now. Those seals don't look they can handle the rides. I'll keep it in mind, and give its it service at the end of the season. I also swap it for the steel stiff fork I still have for winter times.
I will post a new photo soon, with fork build in the M4. First I need to make some school exams...
