    Fox 32 Talas RLC for Motolite 2

    I am thinking of adding the Fox 32 Talas RLC 07 to my new motolite 2 when it arrives. My LBS in Indonesia stocks maz, fox and manitou. fox and bike will arrive in august. will have to wait until october for the maz. I have a maz am3 now which i love but want to upgrade for better and lighter fork for the moto. I don't want a bolt through axel as I will have to change by front dt swiss 240s which are only 4 months old so my choice is a bit limited. Any ideas. The maz will be 08 models. should i wait for those or go for the fox. i can always ride the moto with my am 3 until the 08 maz turn up......

    Assuming you want a light fork that keeps the ML a quick handler...

    07 32 Talas is a top fork for the ML... many happy ML owners

    08 Marz.... the 700 ATA looks light and up to 140mm travel... but will it get it's act together

    you might consider the 08 fox F120RLC. its all you need and very very light.

    but, I do like my talas140 bunches. I use the travel adjust a lot. there are hills I just can't clean without it.

    120mm is a very usable travel setting on the ML for me.

    Good choice! Forget about limiting yourself with a 12omm fork... The ML deserves so much more!

    I am actually welsh but have been working in Jakarta for the last 6 years. Only found out how good the biking is last year. 4 wasted years. But i am making up for lost time..... looking forward to the moto as my khs is just too big to haul up hills for 2 hours in the tropics. great going down but too knackered to enjoy by the time i get up!!!!
