    Another Sultan Pike question.

    Curious if anyone is running a Pike at 130 mm on their DW Sultan? IF so are you running the 46 or 51 mm off set?

    On a 29r the more travel the more offset, you will love the PIKE!

    I had a 140 mm fork on the Sultan, and thought it choppered things out just a bit beyond optimum.

    I think you'll find 130 to be the "Mama Bear" sweet spot.

    And the Pike itself is just buttery, easily tunable, sweetness!
    Whining is not a strategy.

    I am so glad I went with the Sultan. You gotta love when the man's whose name is on the bike answers a question!

    Thank you as well kosmo. The Revelation I have on their currently feels noodly when at 140 mm and just not enough travel and not as noodly at 120 under my fat self even with a 20 mm TA.

    I just went from a Fox Talas 140 to a Pike 150 dual position 51mm on my Sultan. Perfect amount of travel. A2C feels lower but is likely just the extra sag as I had to run the Fox with really high pressure/low sag to avoid blowing through the travel. Quicker handling, stiffer and MUCH more plush vs the Fox.
