    fox talas on prophet?

    is it okay to put a fox talas rlc 130mm on a prophet frame??? i have a current frame w/c will most likely be a donor to a prophet frame, since i have a non lefty wheelset etc... im contemplating on putting my talas to a prophet frame, is the talas too short for the frame???? im concerned about the geometry etc....

    it will work in europe they sell a prophet sl which has a 110mm for on it, so if you already have the fork I would say go for it. If you are thinking of buying the fork then i would look into getting s float 130 instead because you probably won't have to run the fork at less that 130 and it is a bit cheaper.

    will work fine

    the talas will work without a hitch. You'll just need to get a 1.5 inch reducer headset for it

    to work with the prophets oversized headtube. The leftys axel to crown height is pretty low,

    so the talas shouldent mess the the geometry too much. Specially if you ride the bike in

    the lower fr position.
    Everyones got a little weight weinee in them
