    Anyone planning on running the new 35mm PIKE on their Ripley?

    I am very interested in this fork and the new ripley. Just wondering if anyone else is planning on running this fork and if they know if there will be a 51mm rake variant.

    Thanks,

    Would love to run that fork but until they release more info regarding the offset, I'm still planning on the Trace (if it ever comes out.) Hopefully RS was on the ball when they designed the Pike and will be offering a 51mm version.

    I'll get one if it is 51 offset, otherwise I'll stick with the Fox 34 and put the Pike on my Spider Comp.

    Should be available in June I think, maybe some more offset info will pop up soon.

    I am open for doing so if I can get some more info. What is the point of holding it back, Rock Shox?

    I'm seriously thinking about one of these for my HD instead of a FOX 34.....waiting for AC length.

    ...Does anyone know if a 203mm Rotor will fit when the say max 200mm Rotor?

    I know that a 203 will fit on my Revelation, so I don't think you'll have any issues with the Pike.

    Thanks JJ. Im a little confused after reading thru the thread. It looks as tho the Pike will definitely be available with a 51mm offset, but the spec chart only shows 150-160mm travel ranges for the 29" version. I'm would assume the 140mm solo air version would be available in 51mm as well, altho it doesn't confirm that. Any word on that from whomever you spoke with?

    I'm waiting on that info from RS at the moment as I've ordered the 140 solo airs and want to make sure the offset is 51mm. It's pretty difficult getting any information out of these guys at the moment.

    I've just ordered a 150/120mm travel Pike with 51mm offset.

    The A2C @ 150mm travel is 561mm (8mm more than the Fox 34mm/140 and 22g lighter).

    A2C should be ~531mm @120mm travel.

    Probably 2+ weeks away from having the bike rideable...

    Anyone planning on running the new 35mm PIKE on their Ripley?

    RS should offer a 140/120. Then it would've been a nobrainer.

    Yeah, seems that Fox went that way with the new Talas for Ibis. The old 140/110 split never made much sense either.

    fwiw, I'm running the pike on my HD (in 650b mode) right now...set at 150mm travel and with a 203 rotor. the forks works very well. only time will tell if it's anywhere near as durable / reliable as the float 36 I use in 26" mode. I'd think it would be a good match for the ripley, though I am super impressed with the fox 34 140mm I've got on my ripley. The only thing I'd change there is dropping the travel to 130 or even 120. I ran the ripley with a 120mm fox 32 and preferred the geo of it set up that way.

    Cheers . The only bad thing I've read and I've read lots of reviews is the setting that they do no click when you change them and you don't allways know you are def in the mode you put it in . Is this true ?
