    Pivot 429C float 32 120mm Vs Pike reduce to 120mm

    Hi All,

    I am looking for new mtb frame(429C or Ripley).

    i am interesting in your opinion between this 2 forks and the much for the 429C.

    The pike with the same travel will be 10mm higher then the float 32(axle to crown of 531mm vs 521mm of the float 32).

    How this higher A2C data will affect climbing (smooth &technical) and cornering in tight singles?

    In the descent i am shure that the pike will perform better.

    The weight penalty is not relevant pike 1876g and the float 32 CTD 1800g

    Thx

    I'd go with the Pike for sure. It's just a better fork. You'd adjust to the additional 10mm height. We buy a fork for what it will do when the going get's rough so the Pike is the obvious choice.

    The biggest consideration is whether or not the additional stiffness will benefit you. If you weight 120lbs and ride in florida, it will probably not benefit you. But if you weight 240 and live in Moab, then you'd be a fool not to get the Pike.

    The second consideration is small bump compliance. The pike will be superior, hands down.

    <-- has a 120mm Pike on a 429c. But I'm 6'7" 265lbs and ride in SoCal, so there was no other option.
