    5010 CC 2.0 with a 160mm fork ?

    Hi everyone,

    I am about to change the fork of my 2016 SC 5010 cc bike, I want to buy a Pike , my LBS has a 2018 Pike in 160mm. at a great price, does anyone out there have any experience with 160 forks in the 5010?,pros ?, cons ? , performance ? thanks for your comments.

    Regards.
    btw, sorry, maybe a 160 mm in a 5010 is crazy?

    That's a big fork for the 5010 V2. SC says 140mm max, so you would be in 'unsupported' territory. I am running a 140mm and personally wouldn't want it any slacker.

    That said you could buy the pike and get a 140mm air spring for it for ~$40. They are pretty easy to swap out and maybe the shop would even do it for you for free if you buy the fork/spring there and ask nice.

    Thanks for your recommendation, you are absolutely right, I will buy the 160 and change the travel to 140.

    I have an MRP Stage on my V2. I settled on 145mm for travel after trying 140 and 150mm. It would wander a bit too much on steep climbs at 150. A2C height on an MRP Stage is 10mm less than the Pike.
