    Is anyone using a 36 Talas 160 on their SB-66?

    How does it ride with the longer forks?

    The 66 I demo'd was from the Yeti trailer. That one as well as most of the others in there had Fox 36's on the front.

    I have a Talas 160 on my 66 and love it. Demo'd one with the stok 150 and wasn't impressed. Front end seemed too low.

    I have a 160 Deville on mine, and found the front relatively high. Stem bang on the headset and low rise handlebars and it is still high, but got used to it.

    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.

    I'm curious - For those of you with the 160 mm 36 fork: What's your BB height coming in at?

    I'm running a 36 Talas up front mated with a Pushed Monarch plus on the back. I can't really imagine running anything other than a 36 an up from now on.
