Still don't think there is a better bike for my backyard so this winter I am just going to do some upgrades. I am going to have someone do a custom tune on the rear shock and I want to upgrade or change the fork.

I hate the fork so I am looking for options
Option 1 - I found a place that will do a tune and update on my Fox Talas 32
Upgrade to the 14 Fox
Upgrade internals to 14 Fox (even possible)
Pike

One thing at my height I have to have a dropper fork due to how high I need to get my seatpost on long climbs and how far that puts me out the back. I would like to do a pike t stage but I haven't read anywhere where it has been done on the Jet9 yet.
