This will work for a road tire but when you need something for cross/mtb I wouldn't recommend tape. The higher volume of a road tire will help old the tire in place whereas in the dirt you tend to want to run low pressure which is harder on the mastic.

For trail riding this fork is a great product. As a 100mm race fork the CTD is pointless. When I'm racing I don't want to take my hands off the bar to change the fork mode. I will say that fox upgraded my damper for free to a terralogic and it is much better for a racer. Fox does a few other things a little funny when it comes to 100mm "race" forks. They don't tune the forks to firm as I'd expect. Rather they tune it to "M". I think the CTD would be best for forks from 120mm and above.

Listen, if you want a stem, seat post, or bar, Thompson is the gold standard. They don't make anything that works ok. They make amazing pieces that work perfectly.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Zipp moved the threads from the face plate to the stem this year. This simple change made this stem 1000x better. Last years stem was so hard to torch down you would most likely strip the bolts. Zipp makes a great product and obviously they've learned something and made steps to correct flaws.
