    2011 575 Fork question

    So a 2011 575 yeti demo bike just arrived from Go-Bikes. Yippee! Quick question for owners of the '11 frame: I have a 2009 Talas RLC with tapered headtube that I could take off my ASX (most likely on the selling block soon) and switch out the 150 float. I know lots of folks recommend a change like this on the older 575s, but curious if anyone with the new frame and 150mm float have made this change and what your impressions are. I'll probably give it a try to see for myself but thought I'd ask. Thanks, Greg

    I was talked out of getting a Talas for the '11 575 and I'm glad. This bike climbs great with the Float 150 on steep technical or the long sustained climbs we have here. I bet you'll like how the 150 rides but if you do swap over for the Talas let us know how it compares.
