#!markdown Cheers! I'm increasingly of the opinion (my opinion) that RockShox was not wrong when they released their first long travel (4″) trail fork as a double crown (Judy XL / SID XL). If you deliver the offset in the crowns instead on the wheel like Specialized did with their late-90s Future Shock forks on the Enduro (great idea / crappy performance) then the only real issue -- knee contact climbing out of the saddle -- is a non issue. Benefits of a dual crown (admittedly there would probably be some weight penalty): replaceable stanchions, no creaking, way less load on steerer, way more room to play with air volume, damper design, and for lubrication thanks to taller stanchions.
