Fork Conundrum - Float vs. TALAS, Part 2

 A while back, I was trying to figure out whether to get a Float or TALAS for the EG.  So few people have the Kashima stanchions on either model [thanks Fox - aftermarket only!] that it was difficult to find a thorough review.  There is plenty of anecdotal evidence to indicate that Kashima works, so I'll take the plunge and get the TALAS 180 RC2.  The lower travel setting will be climbable, and it's not like I can get a whole lot worse than I am now.  Riiiiiiiiight...

I'll wait until after Sea Otter, 'cause Fox will debut the 2012 version and I'll be able to make an educated decision on which fork is most bling.  Also, any significant changes will push the price of the 2011 down.  6 weeks to go...
