    Which Pike Should I Get

    I have ridden the pike race and loved it, but i haven't ridden the team which i hear is awesome too. I won't be able to try the team because i don't know anyone who has it and none of the local bike shops carry it. Please give me your info. Race or Team for my next fork?

    I say the race. The team is not as strong as the race because of the hollow crown and aluminum steerer tube. (Thus making it lighter) They both have the same adjustments, so if you want to spend around $50 dollars more to shave off .2 pounds, go for it.
    I ride the pike race, btw, and I love it.
    If you're not living on the edge you're taking up to much space.

    I've got the race model, and I've loved it also. Very solid & adjustable

    the lockout is awesome especially for a SingleSpeed...a-lot of standin' and grindin' it out on the climbs

    So they are going to both feel the same, as far as the adjustments. But the team is lighter, ya i knew that. So go with the race because it is stronger and cheaper too.
    thanks.

    hey brad0, you should pull a few links out of your chain. Looks a little on the long side. You'd get better chain wrap on your rear cog, which would make it less likely to derail.
