That's my point, you have the older TT (down curve TT), so if you were on the newer ones, you'd need a 275 to make it feel the same as Morewood changed the link and progressiveness a touch

yeah I must admit I have found the bike likes to hug the ground and would like to give it a bit more pop.

maybe a Void is the answer if I cant find a new spring? care to compare between coil and air..is the Void more progressive?

Nope - as linear, the VOID is better than the Stoy, given it's lighter and you have infinite Spring adjustment.
Other than that, it feels exactly the same - you can make it more progressive by adding spacers inside the aircan.

ok so I have gone up a size with my new Makulu (previously on a small) and currently on a 250lbs spring (from 225) ,feels good so far but on your recommendation sup3rc0w I have ordered a 275lbs, hope it works out...cant imagine 50lbs being a massive change anyway

I'm 5ft 8 and can't help but think s medium would have been a better size than my small. How tall are you and how have you found the size change?

Yeah I feel way more comfortable on the medium, on the small I felt a lil squished and over the front at times... I'm really enjoying the medium

The new 650b makulu...wow they've done a good job! Even hotter than the current model, and 300g lighter!

its ugly as sin! its also fudging loooonnng! so forget getting around tight corners. part of me wants to just get a 3D printer and make a mold to build the front triangle of a 2011 makulu out of carbon. (that would also drop a bit of weight)

Make your own? (Triangle that is, supposedly carbon lay up is pretty easy though im not sure id trust myself. Get the right mat and I guess youd be ok).
They can forge carbon now.

Nicely done. Looks fast, bet the morewood helped.

Hi there,

Has anyone ever put dual crown forks on their Kalula? I'm interested to hear what difference it makes, good or bad.

I believe the frame is designed to take 200mm dual crowns which should slacken the head angle by around 1deg over my BOS Idylle SC foks.
