    Salty fork, revisisted....

    So I've been outta the loop for a long while and finally getting back into the swing of things. About time I got around to getting another Salty, so I was curious what everyone is running now on their Saltys?

    Been wondering also if a TA15 or TA20 would be a wise/reasonable feature to have?

    Suggestions and opinions appreciated!

    08 Salty, and run a Reba @ 100mm. Currently have the QR but would run the 20mm Maxle if I had the $$$.

    2007 TALAS 140. Although I find this fork to be a great "fit" for the Salty, the 15mm sounds like a nice improvement.

    2009 reba with 20mm maxle lite set at 110.
    IT'S NOT THE FALL THAT HURTS. IT'S WHEN YOU HIT THE GROUND.

    Hi SP!

    No, the TPC Minute doesn't have a full lockout....the Absolute models do.....same fork just different damper...

    Agreed

    although the new Absolute presented at the Sea Otter is retrofittable, so could be interesting to compare

    Magura Laurin at 100mm. QR, fork is about 2007. Quite sturdy.

    I highly recommend 100mm fork for the salty.

    If I was building a bike from scratch I would probably go for a through axle 100mm fork.
