Dude, I'm not that smart. I don't get it.
Hahaha... No worries. I was bored and plugged in some numbers for you. :thumbsup:

There's roughly a 34mm axel to crown increase if you install a Fox 36. After the upgrade, the calculator says the bike's HA slackens to 67.46 degrees. (You said 2008 with the 69 deg. HA...)

Other notable changes include:
Wheelbase, + 12.6 mm
Eff Toptube + 5.5 mm
BB Height + 11.8 mm

Hope that helps.

I have a Talas 150 on my 08' Reign 0 and it works great! I went with the 150 cause I wanted to stay with the 32 to keep the weight down, I use mine for everything.
So it must be the new 2010 model? Bottom dollar the 2010 Reigns are speced with a 150 fork. ;)

The only concern I ever had about the Fox was noodlyness... I had one at 130mm and thought it OK, but to stretch it out another 20mm... But then again, with the new 15mm axle maybe thats not such an issue? Still prefer my Lyrik (especially now I've dumped the crap 2 step...)

I would think that they spec a 140 mm fork because they want to keep the bike as good for climbing as possible, considering it is their more trail-worthy all-mountain bike. I'm not saying you shouldn't put a 160 mm fork on it, but then you're reaching into the Reign X category. That said, I put a 170 mm fork on my Reign X, and it's awesome. Like other people have mentioned, if the axle-to-crown distance is fairly similar, why not?
