    Is there a dual position 29er fork that has both 120 and 140?

    I would really like to make my Ripley a do it all bike (currently with 120mm fork), but from what I saw there are no forks capable of 2 positions 120mm and 140mm (talas/rs dual position), only 120/150 available.
    Am I wrong?
    Thanks.

    My Talas is a 140/110, but each setting can be moved by 10mm. So you can have a 140/120 setting. I assume the Pike is the same. I only ever use the 110 for climbing so I don't have a need to change it. Not sure if the Pike is meant to be ridden in the lower setting or just for climbs, but the Talas can be ridden in either setting. The Pike is lighter and most people like it better.

    I've got an x-fusion trace dlr that can be switched on the fly from 140 to 110. Works great.

    Put a 140mm Pike on it and see what you think - you might find that it's fine for climbing and much better on the descents (that's what I found, anyway). If it's too high for your taste, it's easy enough to drop it to 130mm, which a lot of folks think is the best compromise. Having an adjustable fork seems nice but in reality I found it was kind of annoying to have to switch back and forth (especially on a rolling kind of ride), and I much prefer having a light, awesome fork that feels great without having to constantly adjust it.

    The Pike DPA is 150/120mm. It is really smooth and the interval fits the Ripley very well. Long slacks it out nicely for flats and down, short for extended climbs and technical stuff. Can't be happier, but take notice that the DPA doesn't have the tokens to make the fork more progressive. In my experience you the progression is good out of the box, just make sure you get the sag right (needs a bit more air than listed).
