    Anyone running a 120 mm Pike on their Mach 429 sl?

    Just wondering if anyone has set up their Mach 429sl with a 120 mm Pike upfront. It sounds like it would be a great match up to the stiff rear end. Does it mess up the geometry of the bike by slacking out the front end too much? The Mach already looks like it has a slacker front end than most bikes in its category.

    Plenty, including me. It's an excellent match and does not throw off the geo at all (it was designed for 100 or 120.
    There are several builds described in the 2015 Mach 429sl build thread

    Thanks! That confirmed exactly what I was hoping. Being a taller rider, I find the Fox 32 too flexy, and riding the Pike on my previous bike changed my riding for the better, more point and shoot riding, holding the lines in corners without getting bounced off. The weight difference disappeared pretty quickly.
