    Wasn’t the Argyle just a short travel version of the old pike originally? obviously those are longer travel than the original 100mm versions.

    My Five has old pikes which i run at 140mm all the time, for XC AM and DH. Great forks.

    Those ones are Orange as well, buy them now before I do!!

    Hmmm. I tried to use some DJ1s as stiff short-travel trail forks but they were way too harsh and uncompliant.

    Just wondering if the Argyles would be the same 😕

    Then again who uses 140mm DJ forks?

    Was looking at these the other day Argyle RCT 140mm

    They look suspiciously like my old Pikes – 20mm axle, 1 1/8″ steerer, solo air, motion control etc

    Could they be used as 140mm trail forks or would the internals/damping be too harsh?

    Argyle RCTs are supposed to be good, and the lowers are pikes. im sure they can do a bit of everything. Sam Reynolds used to rate them highly and they’ve never slowed him down on the trails!
