    Mojo SL and Fox 36 Talas - possible?

    Hi,
    I currently have a 2010 Fox Talas 160 and I am interested in buying the Mojo SL. I was wondering if it would be possible/recommended to use the fork I have and keep it at 130 for most of the time and during descends increase it to 160 for better performance. Would you recommend on it? I know that the Mojo can come with either 150 or 140 so I guess 160 would not be such a huge jump from 150...
    Anyway - would appreciate any input.
    Cheers,
    Itay

    Yes you can, I ran my SL with a 36 Talas for several years this way. It was fun to play with the adjust feature to match the terrain. I only switched to a 140mm Manitou Minute because I started racing endurance events and I wanted to shave some weight.

    I've been running the 36 Talas for 2 years. No problem... except for the weight!

    Thanks a lot for the replies!!
    I was debating if I should go with the SL or the HD, and I think the combo of the SL with my 36 Talas appears to be a sweet middle point... :-)

    I just put a 2011 160 Talas 36 on my Mojo. 120/160. its a huge step up from my 2010 RLC fit 140 32.

    thank you all for your answers!

    Would it be therefore a fair statement to say that the Mojo-36 combo is a nice compromise for an XC AM bike which is tuned a bit towards the more aggressive side, but now as much as the HD?
