    Remix from 2006- fork question

    Hi All,

    I want to increase my confidence during descents.

    What is the longest fork for the remix 2006?

    Does any one have some time with the pike?(95 -140)

    Currnetly i have talas 90-130.

    does the talas 140 will add some value?

    Many thx

    Big tires would add some confidence to your descents - something like a 2.5 weirwolf, 2.6 gazza jr., 2.5 deisel. Tires are a really underrated and affordable upgrade. I wouldn't sink serious $$ into a new fork for a bike that already has a great fork. Another thing that would increase your confidence on descents would be a shorter stem.

    i currently ride a pike

    on my remix, compared to the talas the HA is maybe 0.5deg slacker. the biggest improvement over the talas is the stiffer chassis of the pike probably due to the 20mm axle.
