140 pikes on a scandal
Seems an strange frame to buy if you were wanting to put pikes on it. I thought the scandal was sold as a light weight wheels on the ground racer that would take forks from 80-130mm. I think I would have gone for the 456 to match the pikes. Not sure how your warrenty would stand if you were running the forks at 140mm. I'm not one to get fussed over how much an extra 10mm of travel would effect handling, but just seems an odd combo to go for.Posted 8 years agosoobaliasMember
if you are happy enough to ignore the slight steering and front end height changes, which you could balance with stem, stack adjustments AND you accept that the increased fork length could potentially rip the head tube clean off…….
go for it, you will end up with a light quick direct frame with a fork that you can plow through pretty much anything – and that sounds like fun.Posted 8 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
I ran my Scandal with 130mm revs, tbh I didn't think it worked very well with the longer forks- it didn't break or anything but it always felt a bit out of its comfort zone, comparing the handling with my Soul made it look very bad tbh. Certainly would never have considered going longer.Posted 8 years ago
