    Forks on a 6.6?

    Hi all
    I'm currently running my 6.6 with Float 32 150mm forks and want something a little burlier without too much weight added.
    What are you guys running on yours?
    My list includes:

    Fox Float 36's
    Fox Float 34's
    Rockshox Lyrik
    Marz 55's
    X-Fusion Slant (34mm)
    X-Fusion Vengeance (36mm)

    and, if I win the lottery, Bos DeVille's

    I had running four years with the 36 talas on my old 6.6 and works awesome though the frame has a slack head angle.

    I'm running BOS Iydlle SC's on mine. My mate has Lyrik's on his and rates them highly.
    Intense 6.6 with BOS Iydlle SC & BOS Stoy= Super stoked

    Picked up a set of 36 Van RC2's. Bit heavier that what I was looking at but didn't notice on the 1st outing last week.
    One thing I can say is that they are soooo much stiffer and smoother. Just waiting for the right spring to get the properly set-up.
    Combined with my offset bushes I've now got a 66.5 HA and a 14" BB so the BB has crept back up a fraction over the old, shorter A2C, forks..

    Yeah, the Van is a good call. That's what I ran on my 6.6 when I had it (5-6 years ago?). With 6.75" of plush travel in the rear a 160 or 170 mm fork with beefier stanchions matches up much better and is less flexy than the 150mm 32 fork.

    One of my few complaints with the 6.6 was the relatively steep HA and highish BB. Sounds like you've already fixed that with the offset bushings. Nice.
