    Fork for El Rey

    Hey All,
    Looking for recommendations for a new fork for my new-style El Rey. I know the frame is designed around a 100mm Fox fork...501mm a to c, regular 44mm offset. I've seen in a few threads that the 32 Talas 120 seems to be a common choice. Those of you with El Reys, does the taller 120mm fork affect the handling much? I wouldn't mind a little extra travel, as this is my "trail/all-mountain" bike for the moment, but I don't want to negatively affect the handling either. So what's the consensus...stay with the intended 32 Float 29 100 FIT CTD, go up to the 32 Float 29 120 FIT CTD, or maybe give the Talas 120 a try? I'm not sure I'd really use the 90/120 feature of the Talas...but does it provide any other benefits or noticeable differences? Thank for any input you can provide.

    I use a 100/120 Talas. The 100 is good for steep ups, while the 120 is good for downs.
