    Nice! So ... how does it compare to the craptastic 34 CTD?

    Did you go 150 or 160mm?

    Interested to know if they might have replaced a 2013 or 2014 Fox 34?

    It replaced the stock 34 Float from the Bronson. I assume its a 2013.

    I went with the 160 Pike. Setup was dead simple. Damper wide open, rebound five clicks from full fast, 80 psi in air chamber (I'm about 185 before gear). 20-ish % sag and as you can see, nearly full travel today.

    Very plush, but not divey though midstroke. Exceptional small bump performance. I'm quite pleased. Previously, the rear suspension out-performed the front. Now the opposite is true.

    I do have a Bronson C on order that I'll be installing a CCDB Air on, so hopefully that'll balance out front to rear.

    Forgot to mention, the Pike is more than 300 grams lighter.

    Is the Pike truly 300g lighter than a Fox 34??

    Manufacturer weights for the 34 Float versus the Pike suggest 100g is closer.
    Rolling on 29", 650b, 8.3" and 23mm
