    Pike Dual Air on a Ripley?

    I've been running my Ripley in XC mode, with a 120mm Float 32 fork. I was considering putting a TALAS on it (which I think can be configured to 120-140mm, rather than 110-120?), but I've also been hearing great things about the Pike.

    I was not aware that the Pike could be had as a dual-air travel adjust model, but it seems like the 120-150mm model would be pretty ideal for the kind of riding I do: 120mm for XC carving, with the option to add a bunch more squish for long, rough descents.

    So, anyone got ride reports on the Dual Air Pike in general, or better still on the Ripley? Comparisons to the Fox 32 would be particularly welcome. I found a couple posts from several months back from folks planning this setup, and I'd love to hear feedback on performance.

    Thanks Simenf. I haven't found many reviews of the Dual Air version of the Pike. Do you find that the performance is equal in both 150 and 120mm modes? And have you ever compared Dual Air to Solo Air in terms of stiction and general performance? Given how different TALAS and Float models perform I'm wondering if the same applies here...
