    Fork advice please

    I'm currently rebuilding my hardtail which is basically a hardcore hardtail/thrash bike.

    The fork came with a 140mm Pike on it and now I'm planning on getting either a Fox 36 (160mm) or a Rock Shox Argyle.

    I've got a DH bike (Scott Gambler), so this hardtail will be used for everything else:

    -City bike for Uni
    -trails
    -dirt jumps here and there
    -light DH


    What would you guys go for?

    honestly, the pikes are really good forks, no reason to change those. i would keep the pikes over argyles any day. 36s seems like crazy overkill for these. but hey if you really wanna splash out.. do it

    instead i would.. if it was me ofc.. use the cash set aside for fork and use on good set of tires, pedals and lighten everything within budget.

    Well I sold the Pikes a while ago, so I am needing a new set of forks.

    Ive set myself a budget of 500 pounds to "re-do" the bike. I only really need forks and a new pair of brake pads and discs which I've already bought. I've stripped the frame and will polish it. I'll probably open up a thread for the project once parts start arriving.

    So this thread is really only down to the forks...I might look for another set of pikes...
