    Pike 29 at 130mm or with 650b

    I'm thinking I may build a long travel 29er hard tail, but I'm convinced that 27.5 is also in my future.

    Apparently you can lower the Pike to 130mm, which would work on the majority of TR/AM 29er hard tails and also on just about every 29er full suspension.

    But what about using the same fork on a long travel 160mm 27.5 AM bike?

    Ignoring the obvious 3/4" difference in HTA, would the offset be a big concern?

    I am also in the same boat, and was wondering if anything has a opinion on this. Specifically I have a 140mm 29er pike fork for my nimble 9, and was wondering if I could use the same for on the new canfield balance when it comes out, which is suppose to use 160mm fork.

    Glad I'm not alone.

    Yea the ability to use the Pike as a 650b/29er standin would be cool.
