- New Pikes have arrived.
does anyone know if the travel can be spaced down yet?
Yes I hope so, the parts lists are yet to be released so not 100%, no parts available yet but due soon.
Good luck with that!
I bought 2013 RS Revelation RCT3 29er when they first came out – waited 9 months on a cartridge to reduce the travel from 140 – 120mm

Would it be madness to run the 650B 150mm version on a 26″ bike with a biggish tyre? Might be a sensible future proofing option.
I wouldn’t imagine so – I’ve mentioned before that the X-Fusion Vengeance is essentially a 26″ fork, but has been designed to accept 650B.
I suppose it all comes down to individual bikes, ATC length and what head angle it will createPosted 4 years agorjMember
I’m making an entirely unfounded assumption that running a 150mm 650B fork will be a bit like running a 160mm 26″ one. I’m not desperately worried about losing the 10mm of travel (or gaining 10mm axle to crown), but if it would entirely muck up the geometry it would be a trifle inconvenient.
