    It will probably own a 66 also with the 2 step model for climbing/dj

    What is a beefery? Is that kind of like a bakery, but with meat instead of bread?

    Two step fork isn't going to make my bike any lighter when I am pushing it up hill.

    Still don't understand why Fox doesn't have a 180mm SC in their 2007 line up?

    It seems that, (XC & DJ aside), the big 4 have recognised the differing degrees of Mtb, or vice versa, and have came up with:

    140mm forks (Fox 32, Pike, Minute, AM2) for Trail,
    160mm forks (Fox 36, Lyric, Nixon, AM1) for All Mountain,
    180mm forks (?, Totem, Travis Single, 66) for Freeride,
    200mm forks (Fox 40, Boxxer, Travis Triple, 888) for Downhill/Extreme

    Perhaps they're working on it for 2008?

    i'm very curious about the Totem, as it looks awesome...
    however, the 66 is proven and battle tested, Totem ain't... so, i think i'll wait for another iteration to let them work out all the bugs, and ride my 66 in the mean time

    Personally I refuse to spend $1k on a fork. I mean... come on. I'm not normally one to complain about the cost of bicycles but that is rediculous. I didn't realize labor prices in Taiwan went up so much this past year.

    Pretty hard to complain about the 66.

    I finally mounted the coil totem up, been on a 66SL lately.
    Only a couple short rides but I've done some smaller airs and will say it the fork is fricking harsh compared to the 66SL.

    I'm 145lbs. and tried the soft spring for 140 and under with 4 preload spacers, and the stock spring for 160-180 with one preload spacer. The soft spring was horrible, the stock is better but so harsh it hurts. I've got the comp. adjusters at minimum with the stock spring and tried all the different settings with the soft spring.

    Guess I can look at the oil levels also, but I'm missing my marz and looking forward to seeing how my warranty deal goes with it.

    I'll have to get back on 1 1/8 to see if I notice the steerer tube difference.
    Thats all I can say for now until I get some good rides in.
