    Thanks for the backcountry tip. $200 is about as much as I want to pay for a Fox or Suntour fork. Just need something that kinda works until the Mattoc is available.

    I know PUSH removes the CTD and replaces it with a high and low speed compression dial. I'm not sure if you can buy it seperate though.

    Another $230 turns them into a 2014 Talas. $430 for a 2014 non-Kash Talas is still a great deal. Also, if you get it through Comp Cyclist you can just return it no questions asked.

    Anyone know if the fork could be extended to 160mm if converted to a Float?
    And how much for the CTD upgrade?
    I bought from Comp. Cyclist a few days ago for $399. Hasn't even arrived yet.
    Guess I'll go for a refund on the difference or just return it.

    Fox 34 Talas 27.5 150mm. $200

    That is just unreal!! I HAD to order one at that price. I'll either sell it at profit later, or build a budget 27.5 if I can find more deals on cheap 650b parts

    (Edit: said 152 left when I ordered)

    "They don't ship to New Zealand :-( "

    To get it to New Zealand just use a freight forwarder. I use MyUs.com for these things.

    $200 gets you the F34 chassis, that's how you have to look at it. I can get an Avalanche upgrade and have more fork than I will ever need for less than half of what a Pike costs. This price point opens up a lot of possibilities.

    Even if I didn't need one, I would have probably ordered one since you can't even get a set of lowers for that price.

    Exactly...the lowers alone from Fox are more than $200...

    Somebody should probably start a "Fix my $199 Talas thread." I assume these are OEM overruns and if there is any difference in these and aftermarket. I want to run mine at 160mm to go with the NS Soda frame I ordered. I'm hoping it will make a fun, short CS all day trail bike.

    It's suppose to be cold and rainy for a few days so its going to be a "get smart on Fox forks" weekend. The wife is not going to be happy.

    There are several other retailers on the internet selling these for the same price. Competitive is one of them...

    Well, you need to make sure the bike has a head tube which will take the fork and the travel of the fork is suited for the travel of the bike, otherwise the geometry will be off.

    Well I'm in the market for a 2014 model (bike), so they're all going to have tapered head tubes. Was more thinking along the lines of would this work on a giant with their OD2 stuff.

    If not a giant, a lot of the 27.5" bikes I've been evaluating (price point driven) come with Fox 32s. This would be a very nice upgrade.

    ...we could convert your Talas to a float for around $60 and it would be around another $65 for the 2014 internals upgrade. The talas 5 cartridge is around $260 by itself.

    $320 is not too shabby for a '14 34 Float 150 CTD

    Oh yeah, picked up a 2nd one to sell

    I was planning on doing that or for $230 upgrading to 2014 Talas (the weight penalty is less than I thought Float vs Talas). I'll ride it for a while as is and see how much I use the travel adjust and if the 2013 is as bad as its rep.
    What about the Kashima upgrade?

    Meh, all reports are the Kash coat doesn't add much to the performance in terms of smoothness, and I keep a pretty good eye on lube oil (I use 20/50 motor oil), so I'm not bothering w/ Kash upgrade. But you'd be looking at a new CSU...what like $270 ish?

    Def. not worth $270. For the Float upgrade, do you have to send the fork to Fox or do they just send the parts and you do the swap yourself?

    Dunno. Ask: dwarner@ridefox.com

    BTW, if you haven't gotten one, last check there were only 2 left.

    Pau11y, that was the info I was looking for and just picked up another one. This is where deals get expensive.

    The 2014 Talas is 130/160 and that is what I want. Hopefully these can do that.

    Nah, sell one, and use the profits to fund your upgrade

    I'm gonna see if someone wants to order me a pair of these in trade for my 2nd fork

    What exactly is the problem with the 2013 forks, why does everyone want to upgrade the internals right away?

    I ordered mine around 9am, must of been one of the last ones I don't even need it but too good to pass up lol. Would be a perfect candidate for a PUSH upgrade (hi/low speed)

    I bought my 2nd one from CC at 1230 and they only had a few left. A few minutes later they where gone. I also had one in my cart at Backcountry and they had 50+ left. Maybe they will show up again. Maybe someone got smart and realized you could get a 2014 F34 Talas for <$500 or a Float for less than a RS Recon.

    Where did you get those figures. I just got off the phone with Fox and it's going to cost me about $250 to get the 2014 Fit CTD damper and $104 for the Float conversion.
    I wanted to go to 160mm so I don't know if that was the difference in cost. Still a good deal ( less than $600) for a basically 2014 34 Float 160 fork.
