    RS Pike or Manitou Minute Elite Absolute

    I can get a Pike now or a Manitou in a month's time. Don't mind the wait but the question is this:

    Pike which is proven or the Manitou which is 400/450g lighter, but not as proven on the trails yet.

    If I go Pike it'll be 454 U-Turn (Air) and if I go Manitou it'll be the Elite Absolute IT

    And my spirit is crying for leaving

    I have a Pike and I love it!

    What about the new Revelation? 20mm axle, 140mm travel and light.

    According to the local agents it'll only be around 200g lighter than Pike and only available Aug.

    Anyone know if there will be any changes done to the PIKE? It seems like the changes to the Revelation would make the two forks basically identical. If it's only a 200g difference, I don't see the point in having both forks.

    It would make sense to up the PIKE to 150mm (pleasepleasepleaseplease)
