    agreed.

    Edit: Sorted. Not that the vid was bad. Just the autoplay that was annoying.

    landscape = French South Alps

    For the Bos, it's the best Fork i have never tried.
    I had Fox and RS before on different bikes.

    On the Blur, I began with a RS REVL 140mm/9mm, quickly changed for the RS RVL 150mm/20mm. And now, the Bos since 6 months, 160mm/20mm (it exists with 140mm).

    The difference on suspension is real (for me ): more strong, more progressive, better control on hard and rocks singletracks and technical tracks, it doesn't drop like Fox on braking.
    You can set the low/high speeds, rebund and compression.
    All of this for a good "public" price.


    PS : sorry for my bad english

    I'm not a native english speaker too therefore don't worry at all

    Secondly, what does it mean 'goodpublic price' ?

    I put this on the table because in Italy I can't find it lower than 950, that sounds likeother forks street price ( fox, rs)

    THks

    The "normal" price for a Fox 36 2011 is around 1300 ... , but we can find it cheaper on aftermarket.

    The Bos deville begins at 870 (incl. tax) [see bos-mtb online shop].

    Climbing isn't as good as with Pike, but the bike now feels so much more confident when descending.

    Hey jtnord you have to try those and teach us to ride fast in these trails !!! One of the riders is a downhiller so he knows how to ride fast.
    The camera don't show or don't gave the real idea, but they are step with rocks, drop, roots, and had rain a lot these months, it's like grease.
    And we aren't pros, just weekend riders just having fun with families to take care, and jobs to do next day. But I'll try to ride fast next time.

    I am currently using Fox Talas 140mm fork on my Blur LT2 and am thinking of upgrading to a longer travel for a more All mountain feel.

    I have a 2 questions and hopefully guys out here can help

    1) Should i go 150 or 160mm? Dont have a lot of $ to try them out, so whats your take?

    2) To go for Fox float(air) or Vanilla(spring)? I understand from some readings that air shock should go with air fork. Whats the rational behind this?

    I am actually considering long term, get a 160 Vanilla and if i ever do upgrade to a Nomad, I can still use back the fork.

    Just finished my '09 BLT2. I made the move from a GT avalanche ht to the blur. This is pretty much my last bike at least that is what I told the wife to justify spending every dime of Christmas money, birthday, change from the laundry,etc. that I had scrimped over the last year. I was trying to do this build on a shoe string budget but found very quickly that was difficult to do when the GT had different seat tube sizes, different crank sizes and different front derailleur tube sizes. These things caught me by surprise as I started pulling things off the GT and putting them onto the Blur. I also realized that my Reba shock( i love this thing) was not enough travel to even come close to what the blur needed to fully maximize the bike's potential. Even pulling the spacers out of the reba to give it potentially 120 mm of travel wouldn't have been enough. Lots of lessons learned and the number one lesson was that there are a lot of great people on this site ready to help. thanks everyone. In case anyone is interested I'll put the cost of items down just for reference in the event anyone else ventures down my path.

    Frame = 2009 BLT2 large-aluminum(850 w/out shipping- bought on that auction site had a crank brothers headset already in it. i had to buy a crown race for it from crank brothers - 9 bucks)
    Fork = 2011 Revelation RLT with 150 mm of travel (350 w/out shipping)
    Front derailleur = shimano SL (50 bucks. Had to buy this as the tube was bigger on the blur than what my GT was)
    Rear derailleur = SRAM X9 (brought over from GT)
    Shifters= Sram X9 (brought over from the GT)
    Crank set = Deore and Shimano BB(120 bucks. I had to get a new BB as the GT would not fit. REI had a deal where you could get both the BB, cranks and new front cassette all together for 120)
    Brakes = BB7 (brought over from the GT)
    Seatpost= Forte (20 bucks. Had to buy this brand new as the one on the GT was a smaller tube)
    Rear shock = Fox RP23 (came with frame)
    Shifter and brake cables= 30 bucks(had to buy all new stuff since the runs were longer on this bike than what was on the GT. Also with the extra travel in the front fork i also had to get a new front brake cable)
    Labor=20 bucks(the only thing i had someone do is to install and adjust the front and rear derailleur since I didn't want to spend a sat. dialing all this in myself..best 20 bucks I ever spent)
    Chain = 20 bucks (had to get a new one since i had a new front cassette and it was well worn)
    i just got back from a ride so she's a little dirty. i put some blue painters tape on the rear triangle to offer a little protection from chain slap until I can find the that came with the frame.
