i have ridden a 2006 with 100mm fox float, 100mm marzocchi mx-pro and 120mm marzocchi corsa, 130mm rockshox revelations and 130mm fox floats, and a 2008(which i think is the same geometry as a 2006) with 100/120/140mm fox talas forks.
the 120mm setting on the fox talas was the best ride, and the 100mm marzocchi were the worst, closely followed by the 120mm marzocchi.

well after scrimping and saving for a while I treated myself and the cove to new Raceface Deus xc 2010 chainset, and new, XT front and back derailleurs and shifters, cannot believe the difference tell you the truth bike is lighter and just feels more responsive, front end comes up a lot easier when i want it too also, and easier to pull wheelys than wit hthe the LX :wink: :lol: :lol:

think im missing my rapid rise though :cry: which took me forever to get used to.

excuse the wonky chain stay protector :oops:
