    2010 stumpy fsr expert - fork flexy- advice pls?

    Ahoy,
    I recently bought a 2nd hand 2010 stumpy far expert. Frickken dig the bike. My only issue is that the fork - a fox 32 talas 140mm is a bit flexy- noticible on fast downhills. Also find small bump performance not that great- altough it may just need a service.
    Anyone else have similar issues? Wondering of there are mods one can do to fix this. Alternatively anyone replacr the fork with something else? If so how does it compare the the stock fox.
    Ciao

    Flamer - I swapped out the 32 for 34 on my stumpy and to me it made a massive difference.

    Thanks mate. Any specific brand you recommend? mine is a non-tapered head tube.

    On my 2011 Stumpjumper I swapped from the Fox fork to a Rockshox Revelation. MUCH stiffer feeling fork and the small bump compliance was a step up. If you can try swapping to a fork with a 15qr axle, it is a big improvement but you may need to get a different front wheel to use it.

    The new Fox 34 and the Pike only come in Tapered steer tubes, so those wont work for your bike.
