Ok, after much deliberation, I think I'm finally set on the BLT. I'll be placing my order next month as soon as I get my W2's and figure out how big of a tax return I have coming from Uncle Sam. I'm torn between the Fox Talas RLC and Vanilla RLC forks. I test rode a BLT with a Vanilla fork on it, and I was really impressed with how plush and smooth it felt. I also had no problems climbing up a steep embankment with the Vanilla on the front, but it would have been nice to try it out on an extended climb. The difference in weight between the Vanilla and Talas isn't much, but the Talas is quite a bit more expensive, and I can pimp out some other components if I opt for the Vanilla. I'm wondering if the travel adjustment on the Talas is really all that necessary on the BLT? For the people that have the Talas forks, do you find yourself using it much during climbs, or do you not even bother to lower the fork?
