they've been good, but it seems like they've been solid and reliable where other companies are falling short. marzocchi comes to mind. i used to swear by them now my only choice is FOX.

Ok ya these are 06 models, well I hope they've got the problem straightened out. Now im going to start looking at fox's rear shox, Im outfitting my 08/09 build with Fox suspension only.

Looks like im goin with a 36 Talas and a Float RP23 on an 08 Brodie Recluse or transition bottle rocket frame. How does that sound?

sounds sick, bottlerockets were made around fox forks

if your getting a bottlerocket don't go air, i used to have a bottlerocket with a dhx 5 air on it and the leverage ratio of the bottlerockets suspension design is way to high for the air to handle, i switched to a dhx 5 coil and had to run a 600lbs spring to get my proper sag, and i weigh 180lbs +/- 3lbs

Not sure if this was mentioned, but the Float 36 fork travel can be changed with internal spacers (160-130-100mm like the talas but not externally).

But I think it would be much easier to change on the fly.

does anyone know if running an 09 Fox Talas at 130mm for DJ and Slopestyle damages the Talas mechanism?

you would be far better off with a float..... its lighter, cheaper, and more reliable for jumping
