    Can the new Pike 160 650b fork be internally lowered to 150?

    If I get the 160mm fork, can I lower it internally to 150mm? I know the fox allows this but I cant figure out if the new Pike does.

    Was told from two dealers I trust that they use different airsprings so no way to lower it

    I have reduced the travel on a Lyrik solo air (120 mm) that Rockshox's official line on was that it shouldn't be reduced, and I spoke w/ a Specialized factory racer at Sea Otter who was running an Argyle (100 mm) on his Enduro SX, but said he was looking forward to putting a lowered Pike on it.

    I think any Solo Air spring can be adjusted, though there may be consequences to the chambers' volumes.

    i read that on the latest revelation forks you need to buy a new air spring assembly in the desired lenght to change the travel. Anyone know if different air springs will be available for the pike? I guess it's not possible to use the 140mm spring from the 29er fork?

    Yes air springs will be available for the pikes(according to sram uk). Got my pikes last week. Look awesome in a stealth sort of way
