    Fox 32 Talas 150 Fit RLC - Spacer to reduce travel?

    I just want to confirm this.

    Can a 2012 32 Talas 150 rlc (120mm-150mm) be adjusted using a 10mm spacer to make it 120mm-140mm travel?

    I checked their service site and cant see any instructions or any documentation on how to do this.

    basically trying to get the same specs on what comes on a giant trance x 0

    For all I know you can't use spacers to reduce travel on the talas, that only work with the much simpler float. I think that in order to reduce the travel you will have to get a new talas mechanism made for 140-110 forks and that is going to be expensive.

    Fox makes their dampners custom?

    Specialized has a Fox Float 32 29er with 130mm travel, something that can't be bought aftermarket either.
