    Ibis SL upgrade options...

    .I currently have a talas 32 120/150 and I want to get a better/bigger fork. I don't ever use the lockout or adjust it down to 120 so I was thinking of getting it converter to a 150 through Push. Or would I be better off getting a 160 fork for the type of riding I'm doing (aggressive,drops, jumps, ect) I really don't know what the best option would be.

    I also want to get my rp23 pushed but not sure it's worth it. What's the "big hit " option on their rebuilds? Will it be more plush if I get it pushed or would I be better off getting a new rear shock? What worthy shocks will fit a small?

    Anything else I should look up upgrading?

    To me, it sounds like you'd be better off with another rear shock in place of the RP23.

    Something like a X-Fusion Vector Air, Cane Creek Double Barrel, etc.

    Far too many options to list for the front fork.

    Key (IMO) is getting all the extra features you want, but keeping the weight as low as possible.

    Good luck and let us know what you end up doing!

    Lyrik lowered to 150mm and an Monarch RC3 rear shock. Awesome combo

    I just got an email from ibis and they said no piggy back type shocks will fit the small. He said rp23 and Van are about it.

    So I guess I'll be getting my shock pushed. Hope it's worth it.

    Marzocchi Rocco Air Lo, RockShox Monarch, X-Fusion O2, Manitou Swinger (not the DC), and Manitou Radium are some other options.
