    2014 RS Pike. Anyone get one yet?

    Looking to put one on my Knolly Endorphin but it's hard laying down a grand when nobody has ridden it yet.

    2014 RS Pike. Anyone get one yet?

    Been on mine for a week now...amazing fork. By far the best fork I have ever ridden and I have had a lyric coil,a couple fox 36 rc2 kashima forks, and a bunch of floats and a Reba and the pike blows me away with what it soaks up. Small bump sensitivity is the best I have ever felt and it is super supple in the beginning stroke yet ramps up super nice. The tunable air chamber size is a great idea. I think this fork/ charger damper will change the benchmark in the industry at least for a year or 2, maybe more. End result...well worth the money if you got it.

    I have several days on a Pike and would agree with the comments above. I don't know what magical engineering dust they sprinkled on it, but it is an amazing fork.

    Can you guys comment on th Compression/Trail mode of the RCT3?

    On my Revelation I find the compression/trail setting way too harsh.

    Supposedly it was smoothed out on the Pike.

    I consider the trail setting on my Pike to be a huge improvement over any of my revelations.

    This fork is awesome

    Just got one, 29er 120-150mm dual position, but haven't had a chance to ride it yet. Will advise after a few outings.

    Very interested, could you also throw a tape measure on it from axle to crown when its actually on the bike in the 150 setting? Ive seen specs for the A2C measurements but interested in a real world measurement.

    Anyone know if the 26 solo air can be reduced via internal spacers??? This fork in a 140mm on a stiff trail frame may get me to a one-bike does all.

    Are there any drawbacks picking Dual Position over Solo air, besides abit heavier ?

    Are the SoloAir easier to setup/tune ?

    Hm.. or are dual position also solo air now ? Im confused.

    Dual position is for those who want to adjust travel on the fly by flipping a lever. Some ppl use it, some don't and just buy a non adjustable fork.

    For a frickin $1000 bucks it'd better ride like gold! i can't believe how expensive our sport is becoming. Absolute nuts. Each time a company now thinks they have a breakthrough, they also break our banks.

    But I'm glad to hear everyone's liking the ride. I'll just wait until they come down reasonably in price.

    There are deals to be had. Universal cycles has the vip15 code which brings it down to 854, still not "cheap" but more tolerable. If its as good as people are saying, Ill be happy putting that money down... At least for the 29er crowd this is quite possibly the best fork available.

    So true- my mountain bikes end up running the same as a motocross bike. Thanks to Santa Cruz and the bronson for making 10k the new benchmark for expensive!
    PM me for a great price on a pike 150 27.5 as new condition, barely seen dirt!

    Yeah, it's the most I've ever paid for a fork. My LBS gave me a deal but it's still outrageous. This sport is getting out of control. Time to stop the upgraditis. It did come with a seal kit and shock pump but would've been cool if it came with the airshaft to drop the travel.

    Yeah, kinda bummed that I can't drop the travel but I'm really starting to like it at 160. The fork really is a game changer for shorter travel trailbikes. I can't believe how plush the thing is but stays up in it's travel like a good boy.

    I don't want to hear how good this fork is.....

    Glad you are digging it. How about the Endo? Hope your summer has been a good one.
