    Rush with a 36 Talas

    I currently ride a RFX. This bike is overkill for most of my riding. I am considering a Rush along with several other bikes to get more out of the trails here in Florida. My wife has a rush and it is very plush on the small stuff and forgiving on the larger stuff. I was sold when i took the same bumps in the trail and it actually felt better on the rush. My question is has anyone put a beefier fork on one of these bikes? Say a talas or even a Z1. I am hard on parts so I like a bigger fork. I was considering a SC heckler but the customer support locally is non existant. I am thinking of slacking this thing out a touch for the 3' to 5' drops at some of my local trails. The frame definately seems strong enough. Will this create warranty problems? Thanks for your time.

    I know a kid that folded a rush in half with 5 foot drops. The rush isnt a bike for doing drops on. after seeing his pics i would never drop into anything outside of a puddle on a rush. IMO

    Thanks

    Scratch that bike off the list, you saved me some heart ache. On to the prophet MX or a Reign x1.
    Thanks,
