Through this summer, you can upgrade your older Fox FLOAT 34 or TALAS 34 suspension forks to their latest air spring for just $99 plus shipping. After August 31, 2016, the price jumps to $139.00 plus $40 installation fee (plus shipping, too).

Since the negative spring is now air and pressurized off the positive spring pressure you set, it’s a huge improvement for lighter and heavier riders.
