    PricePoint's 07' Pike 454 costs less than 06'

    PricePoint has a great price on 07' Pike 454 Air U-turn at $485!!! : http://www.pricepoint.com/detail/15550-315_ROC546-3-Parts-59-Forks/Accessories/Rockshox-Pike-454-Air-U-Turn-Suspension-Fork-'07-offerIN050BB1.htm?zmam=3075515&zmas=1&zmac=20&zmap=15550

    What I don't get is why they are selling the exact same 06' fork for $590.: http://www.pricepoint.com/detail/15187-315_ROCPA6-3-Parts-59-Forks/Accessories/Rockshox-Pike-454-Air-U-Turn-Suspension-Fork-'06-offerIN050BB1.htm?zmam=3075515&zmas=1&zmac=20&zmap=15187

    Also, they list the 07' fork as 4.7lbs. and the 06' fork as 4.3lbs. I don't get that either.

    Anybody know if and why the 07' is heavier?

    maybe the 07 weight is with the maxle.
    maybe the 06 was grossly underestimated; though rs does a good job with weight.

    the 07 is the same fork for 99.9% of function and form.

    hope that price is not a typo.

    The less expensive one doesn't appear to have the poplock. Hardly a hundred dollar upgrade though. I never trust those descriptions, I'd give them a call.

    I just took delivery of mine. Got the coil version though.

    It's packaging doesn't look like RockShox factory packaging (however I have no idea what it should look like), but the fork doesn't appear to have been mounted or used.
    Friggin bargain!!!!!!!!!

    Is it diffusion black and did a pump come with it?

    No pump, it's a coil version.
    If diffusion black = flat black, then yes.
    The crown is not flat, but a semi-gloss finish.

    Coil = no pump. Dang, I must've had a harder day at work than I thought cuz I'm not thinking straight. Okay, thanks for clarification on the screaming great deal!

    Fine with me. I have not used Poplock on any of my RS forks this past year. Thanks for the info.

    The 07' listed at the top of this thread has turned into an 06', but at least the price is still good.

    Yeah, same with mine. Another guy got his and realized it was an 06, not an 07.
    No big deal to me, looks like they had a misprint.
