It's a classic Goldilocks scenario -- when 29er wheels aren't responsive enough, and 26-inch wheels aren't smooth enough, then the middle option becomes just right. And since you're not the only one who feels this way, Fox Raccing Shox built the 32 Float 140 CTD FIT 27. 5 Fork to keep your mid-size trail bike rolling smoothly.

However, the CTD lever is easily accessible for those of you whose ride isn't complete until you've flipped your suspension levers a few dozen times. And best of all, those options are presented in a way that makes each a...
