Bronson – 150 or 160mm Pike?
Just about to build up a Bronson C to replace the one stolen a few weeks ago. Going for Pike Solo Air fork instead of the Float 160mm i had on the last bike (you can’t get the float in a 150mm hence the 160mm last time…..)
So given i have the choice between 150mm and 160mm with a Pike and the Bronson rear is 150mm what do i go for?
Stick with what i know and go 160mm?
Match front and back to give a slightly better climbing set-up? Or will it make naff all difference?
I’m just under 100kg all kitted out and I do all sorts of biking from 7stanes, Carron Valley, Cathkin Braes and this summer doing PassPortes du Soleil…..Posted 3 years agommelMember
150mm pikes can be changed to 160 and vice versa. You need to buy a new air spring but apparently they’re only gonna be around £35 when available. Think the axle to crown on 150mm 650b pikes is the same as 160mm FOX 34’s give or take so I’d be going for the 150mm Pikes for now and get a 160mm air spring if need be in the future.Posted 3 years ago
160s leading the race for now. Think that bit extra would be welcomed when in the Alps or the half-arsed downhill I sometimes do. And I probably won’t really notice the extra on climbs and can increase sag if I want them to feel like 150s or even make the permanent mod to go that way…..Posted 3 years ago
