    Determining fork offset

    I'm looking at a used Pike 29 fork and the seller isn't sure what the offset is. Is there any marking's on the for that will tell me what the offset is?

    You could ask the seller to measure from the center of the steerer to the center of the stanchions. 48mm or 51mm, more than likely.

    It's 46 or 51 indeed. Hard to see with the naked eye, hard to measure without a 3D measuring machine.

    Notes:
    • I have a 2016 51mm 29er Pike. It says so on the stickers and the box.
    • 46 and 51 forks have the same stanchions, the difference is in the crown (CSU).
    • There are several numbers stamped/cast into the crown. On both the stanchions and crown there's a "46" somewhere. This puzzled me. I have seen Pike 29 51's CSU's online reading "51", but those stamps are totally different from mine;. I asked my supplier, which said: "those are just production numbers." That figures, because, as said, since the stanchions for the 46/51 forks are the same, there's no use to put an offset indication on the CSU.
    • I measured the offset (Measured the offsets on the crown and the stanchions and added'm up). as best as i could. My measurements indicate it is indeed a 51.


    Good luck

    Mine was stamped "51" on the underside of the crown.
