I'm down to 185 lbs (yay! ), and I'm looking for a fork that's a bit more laterally stiff than my Fox Float RLC. Two years ago, I wouldn't have even given this a thought, but since everyone in this forum tends to let me know how much they can abuse parts (like me ), I'd figure I'd ask anyone here if they've ridden a Pike 454 Air with U-turn (no pop lock).
The idea of riding with a 20mm thru-axel just seems like the way to go as I'm starting to do more jumps and go through technical sections faster. So I'm curious if this is a clyde-worthy fork. Most reviews are positive on it, but I've heard a couple of folks still have had problems with it (but that's NOT the majority by any means).
I was thinking of the 36 Talas, but it looks really heavy, it still has the lack of full travel problems that Fox has had, and I don't think I really need 6 inches of travel just for a thru axel.
So before I plop down some major dead presidents on a new front wheel and fork, I'd like to hear what you guys have had experience-wise.
Let me know what yer experiences are. Thanks!
