- Need some help/tell me what to do. Old pike content.
I have a set of old pike 454 dual air u turn140 -110 alloy steerer…. I need a set of 100mm 20mm bolt through forks.
Loco can help me do this, but its going to cost £70 for the bits to do this plus whatever it costs me to have the bits installed.
before I bite the bullet and order the bits from loco does anyone want to swap my pike for your fork?Posted 4 years agoTroutWrestlerMember
Yes. I have “custom spaced”* the travel on a number of forks. I have a pair of shortened Pike 454s running a Revelation Dual Position Air spring in the wrong leg – all to do with casting thickness at the base of the lower – These are spaced down to run at 100mm/130mm instead of 120mm/150mm.
I think that with care you could shorten yout U-turns to 100-130mm travel, but you really want to make sure that you don’t scratch the inside of the air tube.
And in a correction to my above post, the spacer should be on the spring side, not the rebound assembly.
TBH, if you’re not confident/ prepared to open the forks up and have a go, I’d stick at 110mm as has been suggested above.

probably going that little pump track in shepshed or kinver… not too sure yet. But that sounds like it could be a go-er, although I want to try them on the bike I’m going to be riding it on really and thats a major faff.
how much can i space down A RS revelation from 2010? they have 20mm lowers.Posted 4 years ago
