Now that i have a buyer for my Heckler, its time to build up the MotoLite (well once i get the frame that is). I have a 05 Fox Float i was thinking of using but I just love the stiffness that the Pike has to offer. I have CrossMax XLs that can convert from a standard QR to a 20mm so getting a new hub is not an problem. Being that Im 220-230(w gear) East Coast trail riding what fork would you recommend? Id be looking to get the 454 with the Uturn.

thanks

I have a Fox Talas, and I think it's a pretty nice fork for the bike. But if I would buy have to replace my fork, I would choose the Pike. The ML takes forks up to 145, so the Pike is pretty nice for it, and cheaper than the Talas.

The owner of my local bike shop has a 454 air U-turn on his Moto-lite and he loves it. I was talking to him about the subject, and he thinks the Talas "sucks". Great! :rolleyes:

He said he leaves it at 140mm travel always, and doesn't feel the need to dial it down.
