I got a Gen 1 single pivot Spearfish 3 years ago and built it up with a 120 Fox 32 Factory. I have loved the SF with this fork, but the fork needs to be retired. I know a 120 fork was a violation of Salsa's directives of only 100 mm forks, but have loved it.

I am considering a new bike or getting a 120 Pike for the SF. I have borrowed a Pike equipped bike and it is an amazing fork. The idea of a 35 mm chassis fork on a SF sounds insane, but it appeals to me. Has anybody else tried a Spearfish with such a fork? A Pike, Fox 34, ..... etc.
