    Mach 6 Dual or single position fork?

    Anyone got experience of a dual position Pike on a Mach 6?

    Does the lower height help climbing significantly ?

    Any pros and cons?

    Considering a Mach 6 as my one do everything bike but the slack head angle and wondering front end worried me on long steep climbs

    I have never used a dual position fork and currently ride a bike with 130mm travel and 67.5 HA

    I use a M6 as one bike to rule them all and run a 160mm pike fork. I am at the front of every steep climb. There is nothing to worry about. I wouldn't want a DP fork. I don't know anyone with a DP fork that uses it effectively or is really happy with it.
    Safe riding,

    I have a DP but it is for color only. I never use the lower setting. It feels out of place that low
    Don't aim for success if you want it; just do what you love and believe in, and it will come naturally.
