Strengths:    Stiff, light, plush, adjustable suspicion works well, plenty of adjustments to get the right feel, can be used for any type of riding.

Weaknesses:    Umm none really.....

Bottom Line:   
I was really looking to drop weight off my bike but still have a sturdy fork I could use for any trail situation. It took awhile to find a deal on these forks but I'm happy I went with the Fox.

Strengths:    Stiff, accurate steering. Super adjustable without being overly confusing or finicky.

Weaknesses:    None, just make sure you spend time watching their videos and manuals. All the info you need to set them up properly is really there. Be patient, too many people fault suspension before doing proper setup!

Bottom Line:   
Great fork and one of THE very best choices for a 6 inch All Mountain setup.

Strengths:    Loving this fork. Doesn't seem to suffer from previous Talas problems, adjustability is reliable and it's tuneability is sweet.

Weaknesses:    Haven't experienced any yet.

Bottom Line:   
Had an 08 Talas which had the nasty habit of losing travel during descents, but I've been hammering the 2010 for 6 months now under different riding conditions from dirt jumping to north shore to epic riding and it's been 100% reliable. Fox are still made in north america and I got this fork for an awesome deal online last fall so the value is excellent. I have had zero problems and I love the feel of it. I use the adjustable travel on a daily basis and have yet to have any issue.

66 Evo Ti or 36 Talas RC2 FIT on VP-Free

Hey, I'm building up an old VP-Free as a 'do-it-all' trail bike (leisurely climbs & rip-roaring descents), and it's currently got '08 66 RC3's on it. I haven't actually taken it for a ride yet, still waiting on a few parts, but I'm thinking about replacing the forks. The '08 66's look like new, a ... Read More »
