    Fox 36 TALAS RC2 2006

    Any Enduro 2006 riders who own this fork?

    I probably can get a great deal on a NEW Fox 36 TALAS RC2 2006.
    But i've read and heard many negative things about this fork.
    there would be a lot of stiction and lack of small bump sensivity
    also some travel creap.

    I am about to replace this one for my Pike coil fork.

    Can someone give me some advice?

    thanks

    go 08 a much nicer fork and less problems.

    Well I just got one on my enduro pro and I haven't ridden it other than one urban ride but it seems very plush so far. Only being able to adjust the travel 3 mm at a time is a pain but if you are getting a good deal I would say go for it.

    What bike is it going on and why do you want to replace your pike which has comparable travel ajust but is coil and has 10mm less?

    the deal is sweet.

    The fork would come on a Enduro Elite 2006 instead of the pike, I like something burrlier

    Can't think what year mine is

    Hi, I've got the same fork on an S-Works 06 Enduro. Can't think what year it is... It's the 150mm travel, rather than the 160mm travel version. I've found mine to be perfect for my riding. No problems at all.

    I always take some of the advice on the internet with a 'pinch of salt' - it's amazing how many hate posts you stumble on when reviewing a product. (Now that will start some hate mail LOL !)

    Cheers

    Ive got an '06 Pro with the Talas 36 RC2 and Its been fine. Rebuilt it a few times, etc. Travel is fine, nice and plush, and adjustable with all three of the setting changes. Sure the newer ones are nicer, but atleast with mine, no problems. Only problem is stripping out the through axle hex key but thats solved by a bigger car and rack. . . Im sure for the price your gettin it at, its hard to beat. Maybe look for a nice 55 though?

    Have have ridden both an o6 an 08 and the 08 feels way better. It's like night and day with the new dampners this year. Either way you will be happy . I got my 08 brand new from a LBS for only $700 ( got hook ups)

    i comparing it with an 66 SL right now, according to the reviews about this Marzo it is a super plush fork with the only negative thing the break in time.
    and comes with the same adjustment features only with a different name lol.
