    ... and if we just ... Epic with Talas X Fork!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Help!!!!!!!!!!

    I have a 03 epic with Fox fx100 with a Panaracer 29x1.95 on front and a WTB Mutanoworm 29x1.85 on the rear. Iam about to get a new frame Epic Marthon frame new shock. I was wondering if any have tried a talas with there epics I know it would make down hills even more of a blast. Using the fork i know it can be lowerd from 140mm to 100mm for climbing. Please any tips would help?

    You may want to check the March 2007 issue of Mountain Bike Action. They have an article on making a cross country race bike more of a trail bike . They use a '04 Epic as the example. One of the things they switched out was the Fox F80 fork, to a Fox Talas X, but state that you will likely void the warranty by doing this, if the frame breaks from the use of a long travel fork. But it looks like it would work.
