    Fork dilemma

    Hello people,

    I'm having a problem of whether to install my carbon rush's carbon lefty fork to a new Taurine & replace it w/ '08 Fox Talas RLC 100-140mm or leave the lefty on the carbon rush & install a Fox XC F-series 100mm fork on the Taurine instead.

    Hope I can get a response from you experts. Mr. Dan Gerous, pls help us out!

    Thank you very much.

    Good job! rush and taurine fork

    jun,
    i find the carbon rush perfect with your carbon lefty fork.its light going uphill, plus the steering is more precise with the lefty. the fox talas 100-140 is also a good option but add more weight to your carbon frame. Your taurine is designed more for road and fire roads, thus a light 80-100 fork will suffice. makes it lighter too. Get the fox 80mm, its perfect for your new taurine frame. Enjoy the new ride!

    Benj,
    thanks for the sound advice. would have wanted to use the super fatty dlr headshock on the taurine but absolutely no stock available here at our place. guess the fox 80mm wud suffice. twil be half a pound heavier though than the headshocks.
