Hi Magas, I thought it might change things ( ie it might want to lift when climbing) but it hasnt really made much of a difference other than the steering actually feels sharper.


My Caldera feels "better" steering/hadling wise after going from 63mm travel to 100mm

Personal prefference I guess

Sids are ace, best buy I have made in years.

Used them over some very rough terrain at fort william (xc course) & performed brilliant

Very stiff & very plush


thanks for comms, looks better in the flesh

Rather nice! Doesn't need to be pure to be retro. Whatever works. I like the use of red. Just the right amount.
