RockShox RS Pike 454 vs. Fox Talas 36
I'm doing a build with an Evil Sovereign frame and I can't decide between the RockShox Pike and the Fox Talas. Any suggestions?
I owned both but can only atest the product of 2-3 years ago -too much for an upgrade for the latest generation. What I can clearly remember the Pike's Maxle was making a big different in front end stiffness if you do drops often. I liked the damping too.
But then the new 15mm thru axle of Fox RLC and said better damping from the new one should make it a good thing.
You can't go wrong with any of them. Look on a bigger picture: your hub, your frame, your riding style, that all will lead you to a right choice of fork
