A) Put the Rock Shox Pike 454, with the travel tuned as far up as possible, on an Ellsworth Specialist?
B) Put the Fox 36 Talas R, with the travel tuned as far down as possible, on an Evil Sovereign?
The Sovereign is steel, and therefore heavier than the Specialist. So, I'm thinking that the heavier Fox 36 should go with that frame; whereas the lighter of the two frames should get the Rock Shox Pike, that would be the Specialist (aluminum).
Some more food for thought:
The Evil frame will be built on 24" wheels front and rear. This should keep the slack geometry from running that size Fox fork on it more manageable. Right now I have the Fox 36 on the Ellsworth, and I'm sitting on the Rock Shox Pike. I'm waiting on the Evil Sovereign from Beyond Bikes. Once everything from them arrives I'd like to get it built up to get going quickly, so if there are any people out there with an opinion about it, just let me know--thanks.
