    Fox 36

    I just paid an insane amount of money for a Fox 36 which I assumed would be a quality fork. With the travel adjuster dialed all the way out this is only a 125 mm fork instead of a 150 mm as stated in their ad copy. Also, in on their websites and posters the fork appears to be black. It is a reddish brown which goes with no bike frame color on earth. Obviously, the travel issue is more important. Has anybody else had this same problem. If so, I really need to hear from you.

If Fox is intentionally misrepresenting the travel on their forks this is a serious issue.

    I've never seen anything where it looked black. All of the ads I've seen it looked brown. Maybe there is too much oil in the damping side or something that's limiting travel, how are you measuring travel?

    To ajust travel on the new TALAS systems you need to compless the fork a few times to get the fork to the new travel positon. Try that and you shouldent have a problem. If it presists, call fox or visit a dealer, they should be able to help you. As for the color, suck it up.
