Both models have the same fork and shock. Fox36 GRIP2 and FloatX2 come only in Factory version (expensive :-) and "Float alias Performance Elite" version. There is no "budget option" like with 34 forks (Performance) .

It can handle big jumps and drops, your fear fear factor is probably much lower than bike limits Big Grin

So the reign 29 comes with the 36 performance elite with the grip 2, and the float x2 performance elite. The reasons you're unable to find these aftermarket is because they are OEM specific parts and can only be found by manufacturers or in some cases bike shops. I should be receiving my reign 29 advanced within the next 2 days so I'll keep you posted once I have the suspension setup. On a side note though, the maestro suspension does have a way of making the travel number seem larger than it is, and while it's only 146mm, when I demoed the bike through work, it feels absolutely amazing. Just the right balance of playful and planted.
