    Yeti 575 Front Fork Decision

    So due to some unfortunate circumstances, I'm needing to replace the front Fox 32 150 Float on my 2011 Yeti 575.

    I have two options and I'm not sure what to go with.

    My choices are a 2013 Fox Float 36 160mm or a 2014 Rockshox Pike Dual Position.

    The pike would be new and a little more expensive but I've heard so many good things. The Fox is cheaper and used but I think I would have to replace/convert my hub since my current ones are 15mm i believe and the Fox is 20mm.

    My bike is my do everything bike. I ride local trails, bomb the bike parks, ride around town etc.

    I'm looking at about $150 difference between the two.

    Thoughts and opinions?

    I would pay the $150 for the nicer looking pike and you get the 2 year warranty. No Brainer!

    Go with the Pike! Save a bit of weight (compared to the Fox 36), same hub axle as you're currently using and 35mm sanctions are plenty stiff. You'll see a major difference in stiffness over your old Fox 32 150mm.

    X-fusion Sweep or Manitou Mattoc?
    I just saw the first review of the Mattoc and it got 4.5 out of 5 from MBUK magazine.
    I have heard nothing but good things about the Sweep...love my X-fusion Velvet.

    Running a Lyrik on my 2009 right now. If I had to do it again, I would go Pike.

    If I can get my hands on the new 575, I'll be running a Pike.

    Starting to hear a lot of good things about the Mattoc.
    Kinda fitting for a Yeti to have a Manitou fork, now that they seem to have a really good option now.
