More than just a song from the 80s, Pike are getting rave reviews.

Historically forks w/o travel adjust are not as smooth or plush as non-travel adjust, with all the valving. They tend to be more problematic also, more parts to go wrong.

BUT it would be nice to have the front end lowered for more comfortable climbing on a bike with a slack HA.

So has anyone ridden both the SO and 2P Pike's and can offer some comparison?
