Was looking at these the other day Argyle RCT 140mm
They look suspiciously like my old Pikes - 20mm axle, 1 1/8" steerer, solo air, motion control etc
Could they be used as 140mm trail forks or would the internals/damping be too harsh?
Wasn't the Argyle just a short travel version of the old pike originally? obviously those are longer travel than the original 100mm versions.
My Five has old pikes which i run at 140mm all the time, for XC AM and DH. Great forks.
Those ones are Orange as well, buy them now before I do!!
Hmmm. I tried to use some DJ1s as stiff short-travel trail forks but they were way too harsh and uncompliant.
Just wondering if the Argyles would be the same
Then again who uses 140mm DJ forks?
Argyle RCTs are supposed to be good, and the lowers are pikes. im sure they can do a bit of everything. Sam Reynolds used to rate them highly and they've never slowed him down on the trails!
