the talas is the perfect fork for my style if riding tiday i was out for 4.5 hours, first trails then city riding which was not all that exciting, except for watching my brother free ride down the Philadelphia Art Museum steps.

back to the fork not to rigid like th black super. its a nice plush ride but not too soft. the steering is something that i had to get use too because it is stiff when its supposed to be so that made my steering unexpectingly sharp ( i scared myself a few time turning hard expecting to slide and not). the travel adjust is sweet. i'm very happy with the fork. now if i can just get rid of the black super

Yeah... how did you like the Black Super overall? Looks like a decent fork, though nowhere in the same vicinity of the Fox.

i didnt like the black at all. felt way to rigid and the repound seemed non exsistant. but the shop said that i probably needed to break in more but i'm impatient. alot of people like it thought.i put it on my wife's bike and she loved it . i would say my main problem was dialing in the right air pressure for my weight(225, but that seemde to never get right so i ditched it.

Being 130 lbs, I wouldn't have much of a problem with that. From what I've heard, for a light rider air forks are much more plush and don't pogo as much (which is what I hate about my current fork).

Would you be willing to sell it or are you going to keep it on your wife's bike?
