    Reba... The Wife of Frankenfork

    I'm outfitting my HT with a new RS Reba and I'd like to get a 20mm thru-axel on there. Does anybody know if Pike lowers will fit on a Reba? I believe they're both 32mm stanctions.

    Nope. The offset in the crowns are different.

    Why not get a Pike Dual Air and run at whatever travel you want?

    Bummer. I'll typically run 85mm of travel and bump it up to around 100mm when decending. Can the Pike run at 85mm?

    Pike = 95-140mm of travel

    I think there is no minimum on how low the Dual air can be set, but you need a shock pump to change the travel in that model. The U-Turn air Squeak mentioned would be better.
    My video techniques can be found in this thread.

    Before RS came out with their 06 line I saw a guy riding around on a Revalation with Thru axel lowers. Seemed to me to be a perfect Slolom fork, but I guess RS didn't see the need for a fork so close to the Pike.
    It's not a good ride if you don't scare yourself at least once.

    Revelation is 100-130. U-Turn seems to work over a range of 30mm. It is beefier than a Reba but still QR. Would that do it for you?
