Good questions actually! (And I’m not someone who believes there are no dumb questions). I don’t know anyone personally who has taken apart a Brand-X post but they do look the same externally and enough folks say they’re the same inside that I’m inclined to believe it. I know it’s a catalogue product (not Fox/RaceFace designed). Are the Brand-X that much cheaper? With the current exchange the SRP of a 170mm Aeffect R is maybe $60 more in your local bike shop than a 170mm Brand-X is on Chain Reaction, but that not anything new. I’d guess they’re within $25 street price v. CR. Maybe closer if your Visa has a sh*tty exchange rate. $25 isn’t a lot extra to spend supporting a local-tax paying, trail supporting, business.
