    Interesting stuff. They'll now have a 34 160 and a 36 160. The 36 will return RC2 damper... that'll piss off current RLC owners. I guess only short travel forks will be 32s now. Also wonder what this CTD damper is?

    Also looks like the DGC shim mod may be dead as the sleeves were revised. Better shock bushing as well (better?, definitely different).

    Nice, but with the cost of my 2012 float, I won't be getting anything anytime soon.

    I'm excited for the 34 Float and Talas FIT 29 OE models looks like. Hoping to pick some up on the cheap for $500 or so when people will be upgrading.

    That's what it would take to get me onto fox.

    We all know they invented the 15mm standard because the 32mm chassis didn't have enough room for a 20mm axle. But with a new fork there is no excuse.

    Is there a sound bite to accompany the new fork pics?? It would be nice to hear if they updated the creaking sound for 2013....

    Yeah I would consider buying a fox again if they could fix the CSU issue, now that they supposedly fixed the oil migration issue. Can't beat being able to order parts directly from the manufacturer.

    It seems somewhat unlikely that there will be major CSU changes for 2013. The last time I talked to Fox's customer service manager (a couple weeks ago) he said they were beginning an in-depth study on the creaking issue. Maybe they'll make a change mid-season, but I doubt it. It takes time to create the stantions, send them to Japan for the Kashima coating , get them back and perform the thermal fit process in time for the 2013 product run. If there is a solution to the problem on the horizon I'd bet we won't see it till the 2014 forks show up.

    your "new" 2011 equipment is already 1 year old. 2012 stuff is already on the market.

    My LBS has told me that they will be available may this year due to low stock on the 2012 models.

    Haha, funny because poor availability of extremely overpriced parts(due to Fox being excessively greedy and selling it's customers out to distributors) is exactly why i'm getting out of Fox. They have some interesting products, but I like being able to have my parts available internationally.
