    FOX 32 Talas 150 for Carbine 26"?

    I am about to place an order for a Carbine frame and am planning my build. I got a good deal on a 2014 FOX 32 Talas 150. Can anyone give me some advice on these forks? Seems like most builds here run FOX 34. I am 168 and weighs 78 Kg. I am not an aggressive rider but loves challenging trails.

    I would not recommend any fork that fox makes. Period.

    when I got my Carbine the 150 fox 32 came as part of the build, after 1 1/2 years I changed it for RC pike, so if you could get something better!!!

    Thanks cvega for your reply. So did you have any problems with the Fox 32 whilst you were using them?

    I had a talas 150 on my carbine and the bike it seems like a marathon-bike, later I had a 34 talas 160 and the bike it seems like an enduro bike. Now I have a Pike on my Tracer 275 and I think that is the best option, better than Fox.

    I never had the "plush ride" that I have right now with my pike, also the fox was no as solid ( I am 210#) and one more thing I could never dial the fox as much as i can with the pike, so if you can get the pike or the fox 34 but make sure comes with the update damper.
