    I believe its a 36, but that fork will definitely be in the mix when I scrounge enough cash to get the HD. The new lighter weight 36/160 may be the perfect fork for that bike though...

    I think the real question here is: Who's gonna be the first to post a thread about running a TwentyMcNiner rigid carbon fjork on a Mojo HD and be serious about trying this out.

    the 40's a double clamp downhill fork. weighs 3.1 kilos.

    think the better question is WHY would someone pop a 3.1 kilo fork on a 2.86 kilo frame? especially when there's a 2.35 kilo 180mm fork there in the 36 fit. sounds kinda... DUMB

    you seem to be spamming the boards with "who's gonna be the first to blahbleeblah fox forks".

    I suggest you should.

    Kinda funny to tell a guy to 'get your shyt straight' after you posted the wrong info up in the first place all the while calling him a 'phag' and a 'POS' .

    We all know who the real 'phag' is here...Tim. Yeah Tim. He knows who he is.

    Im very curious to see this. These 36 forks seem like stout 32's with the ability to lockout. I like it, especially the weight.

    Actually, the prices listed were based loosely on the old Dutch Guilder or Netherlands Antillean Guilder for you Eastern European types.

    So I threw that figure into a Yahoo! currency calculator and it comes out to be roughly 15.73 bags of dry grain.

    So not tooooo expensive, but you're still gonna be eating Top Ramen for a while.

    It doesn't, the part about me "spamming the boards" did. I'd love to get my hands on a HD and a 180 Talas. Unfortunately I do not have disposable income to do so

    oh, well the spam comment was because you also posted a "who's gonna be the first to mod the new 36" on the 29er board.

    was a definite "who's gonna do this with a fox fork..." theme going on yesterday.

    Getting back on track

    I am seriously considering the HD with the Talus 160 or, the 180. After seeing it, the 180 looks sweet! Is it about a pound of weight gained with the 180?

    I'm wondering if the 40 mm drop be enough for some extended climbing, and if it will work well with the bike geometry for tight twisty single track. Or, will this fork just kill it's climbing ability? I am guessing the head angle with fork lowered would be about 68 degrees, and seat tube 72?

    As it is I am looking at an XL frame, and a bigger fork means a bigger wheel base.

    Thanks for any thoughts.

    I wouldn't bother with the 180 if you're riding twisty single track, go with the 160 if you are not riding steep rough terrain.

    Well Yoda,

    Little do you know that Ibis hired some Euro monkey around the same time Brian Lopes was busy showing the world that it's fashionably acceptable to DJ on a Mojo with your uncle Benny's fedora.

    If you venture over to some skanky EU mountain bike sites you'll see that it's all aero in 2010. Sure, those of us on the other side of the pond take a half a$$ed approach at getting the front of the bike low now that Josh Bender has disappeared. Seems to me that Fox released those forks about 5 years too late. So don't even bother.

    You're gonna want to start yelling this at all the has-beens from now on: "I got 3 inches up front and I take 6.5 inches in the rear!"

    Get that front end slammed down proper. None of this remove a headset spacer and call it good. I actually recommend keeping your eye out for a gently used Rock Shox Quadra.

    Tuck your arms. Drop your chin. And just rip it.

    Lead the way young Sky Walker!

    Is that a fedora in your pants or are you just riding a slammed Mojo HD?

    Ride whatever floats your boat, 180mm is just a lot of travel if you're just doing trail riding. I'd say go for it if you also plan to use the bike to do lift assisted riding like Northstar.

    Both the HDs I saw at Sea Otter yesterday had the new 160 on. One at the Ibis tent, one at Fox. Forget what the 2nd Ibis HD had on it....
