Explain to me the Evil HVS dropouts

I want to run my DOC at the shortest chainstay length - how to I go about doing this?

http://www.evilbikes.com/images/structures/doc_dropout.jpg

I think I should:

1) loosen the sliding dropout bolts and slide them all the way forward

2) tighten the bolts down

3) remove any excess links from the chain

4) loosen the sliding dropout bolts and adjust tension with the bolts that run parellel to the chainstay

Is this how it works? I had the shop build it up so this si my first time messing with it!

Thanks Dante, but I'm just looking for knee guards. Something for when I stack so I don't hit my knees against the frame…

Who makes good low-pro pads for under jeans? I know Fox has the Radius - has anyone used these?

Yeah, I thought about a Sherman Jumper, but got a really wicked deal that made it way less expensive than the Jumper. I actually ordered a Vanilla but when it came in it was a Talas so I got it for really cheap and figured 'why not'?

I mean, it's already been better than the Static, right?

Sorry, TALAS RLC

It's a light weight XC fork. Sure some pros dirtjump/4X on them, but I wouldn't. I don't get free replacements.

Isn't it marketed as an all-mountain freeride fork? Which means there are 250lb guys out there dropping with 'em.

Okay, so I just (2 weeks ago) bought a 2005 Talas for my DOC. I only had a couple rides on it before slamming my hand in a car door, putting me out of commission for a couple weeks. It feels great (the fork), but as I sit here dreaming of jumping I'm thinking more and more about the safety of riding mainly DJ with this fork. I know I probably should have considered this before buying, but I'm light (135lbs) and figured I would be fine.

Thoughts on the durability of this fork? I see pros like Carter Holland and a lot of brit riders jumping with 'em, but they're super smooth right? Should I get rid of it? The owners manual says "perfect for all types of riding", but does that include jumping?
