    Pike Travel Change - Quick Clarification

    Hey - so I have a 150mm Pike and was wondering if this can be extended to 160mm. I know it is no problem to go shorter via the air Spring but is it possible to go the other way with the larger air spring? Thanks.

    Yep. You can extend travel up to 160 with no more trouble than it takes to reduce travel.

    Only thing I can think of, is that if you ever bled the Charger damper while it was in the fork while set to a shorter travel, you should rebleed it out of the fork. Beyond 160, I'm not sure will work, due to the Charger cartridge being only so long in the Pike.

    It's a $25 air shaft you need and takes about 20 minutes and will require oil, suspension grease like Slick Honey or SRAM Butter, and maybe a couple new crush washers. Good time to do the full lower leg service if needed.

    Yeah for sure. I have gone from 150 to 140 and am familiar with the process, just wasn't sure if the max travel was locked at 150 since that's what it came as.
