    Need Advice Fork For Carbine 275

    I've got two rides on the new bike with a Revelation RCT3 150mm fork. Old fork was a Talas 29er rebuilt by Push. The RS doesn't feel as plush as what I'm used to or like. Fork has only 6 rides on it, so maybe it will break in? I'm wondering if I should go with another FOX Talas or have push work on the Revelation. I found a 2009 Fox 36 Talas 100-130-160 (for 26" wheels) but not sure if that would be overkill for this frame. Will running a fork for 26" wheels affect the geo at all?
    Thanks

    There is anticipation that new 275 products will be introduced at the Sea Otter Classic in about 3 weeks. Could be more options available.

    Call PUSH about the Rev. I have one (26") that was super plush at first, but has gotten less so after 2 years of riding. When I talked with Push at one point, they thought Fox & Rockshox were the best designs out there. (Didn't send it in at that time due to the fork being new). I want to learn fork tuning, so will be "Schwagging" my fork at home, just wish I had a $10k dyno to put it on... The 36 Talas is not overkill, but fork offsets are different for specific wheel sizes, and a 26" fork could limit tire size on your bike. If you decide to off-load the Rev, give me a shout. ;o)
