Do you – or anyone – happen to know when the Fox 2011 stuff actually becomes available to Joe Public?
uplift? you lazy b*stard. whatever happened to “I want a bike that can go uphill as well as down”? :O)
Hi. I am thinking about buying that bike as a replacement to my 2007 Nomad. I’m sure it will be a way better XCer, but how much do you think would I loose the downhill performance while still having 115-160 Lyrik U turn? I’m sure you guys rode both, or at least something similar to old Nomad.
I reckon it would be ace with an adjustable big fork – Just so it could slacken off the head angle for steep stuff ;] It’s probably the next incarnation that i’m going to try …
Yes yes, then I hope Fox will send you 2011 Fox 36 Talas 160 for the test must be a total killer bike with it.
For some reasons both Fox and RS took their latest 150mm forks to some really low axle-crown measures causing a dislike among anyone who wants a light-do-it-all bike with a heart of a gravity monster…
not the most fun thing to hit those lifts once a year with your favourite bike, with 68 head angle, if you ask me…
TBH – It is very capable though with “just” 140mm of fork ;p
Surely it gives a rigid forked platform to pedal off, rather than a hardtail like platform..
Or am I confused..
maaah, I am a too poor rider, with too little time to practice, to comfortably hit faster and steeper tracks without slack front end. Still an ability to go down to 130 feels great for those intense afterworks
Funny I also feel my RP23 pro-pedal isn’t ‘right’. Can’t put my finger on it but I wonder if I need the compression adjusting.
I’m really into buying this bike, Can anyone give me advice: is it much better in technical XC/trail than Nomad or other 6,7″ bike? I need a one good afterwork bike… for fast spins in the woods on aggro XC trails full of roots, rocks and stones. Nomad feels to heavy for me, it feels like it requires bigger mountains and mine are only max 400ft.
waki – I have a LTc my missus has a LT2 and my mate has just bought a LT2 after riding my GF’s. We all use them for everything – the GF runs 140′s up front and we run 150′s – all work really well. Best bike’s we have all owned & between us we have owned 10′s of bikes.
Ok, thx! I’ll get it as soon as my budget parcel for it fills up. Asked plenty of people now, and nearly everyone is: “buy it! best bike I ever had!”. Just this one thing goes around my head, is it really worth to change from Nomad… like changing from Lamborghini to Lotus Exige – sounds trivial, as long as you don’t own a Ferrari…
Ok BLT2 let it be then!
Is this still a long term test bed then? or too busy riding to report – understandable I suppose.
