    Couple of questions...

    1) What did it cost?
    2) Any preliminary feedback on how it rides...
    3) Do you still have the functionality of the unpushed Talas... ie. Rebound, compression ( I understand the "pushed" shocks lose their lockout ability). Right?
    4) Is the sticker optional? ugly...


    Thanks,

    Pushed details

    The cost was $275 American I think. The travel adjust still works the compression has been changed to make the fork better on small hits and wash boards. and the lockout lever now turns the pro pedal system one and off also the threshold adjuster now adjusts the amount of pro pedal like the RP3 rear shock. When I sent it to them it was a talas r they added the lockout lever, compression adjuster, threshold adjuster and adde the push platform system. They also rebuilt the whole fork with new seals and rebuilt the talas chamber for that price. I haven't rode it yet but playing with in my shop and the garage you can feel a big diference in all the settings every click of every dail make a noticable change. I imagine the stickers are optional I didn't say anything and thats how it came back to me but I kind of like it. Fox stuff has always been kind of odd looking and that sticker set just make it more odd.
