    Fork options for a 575? Or should I Push it?

    I have a Fox Vanilla 32 on my 575 and the is the weakest point on the ride IMO-(blows through travel. bottoms out etc with the heaviest spring installed). Sag is set correctly

    2010 575 with a Fox Vanilla 32
    1 1/8 non-tapered headtube
    Best part is that the bike remained basically unridden until I purchased it in May. I guess the guy wanted a pretty bike to hang up in his garage?

    I am having troubles finding an economical fork option with a 1 1/8 straight steer tube. I notice that Push Industries can upgrade the fork to an RLC giving me compression options.

    Any other advice or other forks that might work well? I just can't see spending $600+ for a fork on a bike this old.

    Thanks!

    On my 575 (2009) I started with a 32 Talas 140. That along with the RP23 went to PUSH. Once back, the bike was transformed, both front and rear.

    I have since changed the fork out to a 2011 Lyrik solo air set at 160mm. I have never looked back. It has the dh damper in it. No need for PUSH on this one.

    Hope this helps,
    Mike

    Running lyrik as well went from 2010 coil to 2013 rc2dh solo air. You can find the coil's pretty cheap.
