as it sayts really which do people prefer
pikes coil or air u turn
I've had Air and currenty got coil.
The airs are more adjustble, and it's easier than swapping springs, but there's not a lot between them otherwise. If you like to 'fit and forget' then go for coil, if you like to faff, go for air. I don't think you'll go wrong with either
peter any news on the cheap rear wheel yet?
Yep, I've got myself a new rear hub, but I need rim + spokes first before I can sell. 2-3 weeks I reckon....
I'll be honest with you, it's, err, "seen some action"..!
One of the disc threads is drilled out and needs a bolt through it. The rim was dragged down the road after the tyre popped off, which I filed smooth, and there's a ding in it that I straightened. It's been like that for a year or two though and it still keeps going.... It's pretty straight and has good bearings otherwise
For the record it's a Hope XC, DT DB spokes with Pro-Lock nipples and a 717 disc rim.
Email me if you're still interested and I'll ping you some pics when I come to sell, OK?
I've got coil pikes and love 'em, also got coil Revs and loven them too
steve do you notice the pikes to be much stiffer than the revs?
Pikes are only available coil now.
