    R.I.P 9 with 34 Talas 150mm???

    Hi everyone!
    =========
    I read this on Niner's website: "The R.I.P. 9 is intended for 120 to 140mm forks, allowing riders to further fine tune the ride".

    Niner is offering a custom build on their website, and one of the fork options is a Fox Talas 34 150mm travel. I couldn't find this fork anywhere on the web, not even on Fox website where the most aggressive 29 fork offered is the 34 Talas 29 with 110-140mm travel.

    Do you know if this Fox Talas 34 150mm is made by Fox especially for Niner, or maybe there's a mistake on Niner's website and that Fox Talas 34 150mm is actually the 110-140 Talas, since "The R.I.P. 9 is intended for 120 to 140mm forks".

    If it's really a 34 Talas 150mm, do yo know if it's 120-150mm travel?

    Thanks, Mo.

    I know the latest Fox 34 Float could be adjusted out to 150, I didn't know if they had made the Talas so it could be done .

    ... and if we just ... FOX does make a 34 Talas 150MM...and it is the sh$t

    I believe they are only making as an OEM fork and it goes to bike companies only.

    I have see images of it on a 2014 spec. ENDURO 29er and if you look on the Intense FB site you can fine an image of a T29 with the special order option of a 150mm 34 talas.

    I hope that helps. It does and exists and it does complete a long travel 29er very well...
