I have a covert V2 and the small bump compliance and overall plushness sucks. It does well under hard hits and jumping. The RP23 is freshly serviced from Fox. The 36 Talas is known for stiction. I either need to convert it to a float (parts aren't easily available anymore) or sell it and get a Pike or something else. The bike just doesn't ride like it has 160/150 mm of travel. Anyone swapped out the RP23 and Talas and been much happier? I'm also wondering if it's just the frame design and if I'd be better off with an FSR or?
