I switched from a Float 36 to a Talas 36 and really like the feel of the bike (except for the stickiness of the fork - Kashima, SKF seals and all). I ran my Float at 150 for a while and found that the front end was a touch too low and that bb was too low. My trails are rough and generally steep so the 160 suits me well. I rarely use the low Talas position because I get too many pedal strikes with the low bb.
