    Or do you not like the colour of your current forks, doesn't match the gleaming bike!

    Get a coil Pike...they're really blowing them out right now on '06s. Your not going to find a Fox that's better than the Pike. There's nothing coil that has the 20mm TA that will fit your frame. And the new Vanilla is not as stiff as a TA is. Heck, it won't even be lighter!

    However, if you're dead set on it, I'm going to sell my virtually new 140 Vanilla. I'm going to a 20mm TA for my bike - it makes more sense for me (I'm on a Moment). PM me for details.

    just to compare in our group...I'm with a 125mm Vanilla RLC on my Id, Mrs. M. has a 130mm Talas Float RLC on her Blur, the little kid has a 100mm Black on a Stumpy FSR, her BF has the 120mm Black on a Trek Liquid

    everyone agrees that the Vanilla wins hands down for weight, reliability and comfort...can be dialed in to suit any terrain

    I'm told that both Manitou Blacks are being replaced with Fox forks next year

    just my .02

    Chad, I can't believe you're getting rid of the Vanilla already!!!

    So you're not liking it? Why? Shoulda bit the bullet and went TA, but I can understand that you didn't want to let go of the pretty pink breast-supporting front hub. It's ok, you can still have a healthy interest in breasts without it

    Good thing you didn't get the Vanilla PUSH'd yet. What are you going with now??

    I've got Larry's 2-Step Lyric for the week while he's at Interbike. We'll see how that feels. It's between a Pike, '06 Z1 SL (RC2 seems really positive) and a Lyrik Solo-air (I'd have to have the black... ). I can drop the travel on the Lyrik to mimic the Pike, so it should be good test of both forks, essentially.

    It's been sort of a perfect storm of money, availability and consolidation that's led me here. I figure it's time to stop fooling around, get the TA on the front once and for all and pick a fork I'll stay with for a few years. More and more forks are made with the TA so if you don't have the hub, you're limited on products in the 6"+ travel range. I don't plan on having a diff bike anytime soon, so I gotta work with what I got.
