- Rockshox Pike, any one got one yet?
not done mine yet but plan is a fully black 150mm 26 standard solo air and none of your dual this and that stuff… on my undecaled black Carbon 456. Goes with the black cranks, chainring, bars and all other components.
I just need new wheels though, something tubeless ready or UST… and black rims.
And the stealth beast is ready 😀

I’ve ridden both the pike 150 650b and the revelation 140 rct3 on a Norco sight killer b. I always found the revs problematic. In that they struggled to cope with very varied trail conditions under the same setup. If they ran smooth then they were prone to dive under braking and if more pressure was put in then they felt to harsh. The factory recommended pressure always felt to harsh. But anything less resulted in bottom outs. The pikes so far have been spot on. They feel stiffer, and definitely don’t dive or bottom out under the same conditions. I was always flicking between the 3 settings on the revs but tend to ride in the middle setting on the pikes. With the pikes you feel you have more confidence to take on bigger hits, 150 mm of travel on the sight killer b feels right. Norco should have built the bike with this travel as standard, but then it would have been to close to the Range, which would have been pointless for flogging / marketing their bikes.Posted 4 years agojairajSubscriber
the dual air only comes in white, as far as i could tell.
Do you mean dual position air? Rock shox stopped doing the dual air spring a while back. As far as I know, all of their air forks are now solo air.
Dual air and dual position air are two very different things.Posted 4 years agochakapingSubscriber
Is it daft that due to the colour of the pikes (150mm solo air being black), I’m thinking I should go for a black cotic rocket rather than orange. Just don’t imagine the black coating and black stanchions looking right with an orange (and white) frame…
I’d be inclined to agree.
The orange ones would want a white fork ideally.Posted 4 years agoboxxer7Member
Bike discount.de had stock earlier this week 590 delivered.
Fitted mine today and went out for a bit, they are super sensitive at the beginning of their stroke almost as good as the 55 RC3 ti’s I had. They ride really high up the travel to as others have said blow my 34s away that they replaced.
Came with extra bottomless Tokens, pump and service kit for all the seals to!Posted 4 years ago
