Is that the Pike from your Cowan? If so, what are you running on it now?

What's up with the Cowan?????

You're not going to put a Lefty on it?

Looks good otherwise.

Had one, years ago.

It was decent, but I hate C'dales proprietary stuff.

The newer ones are pretty sweet.

Still like Marzocchi's better.

Heck, I even have the adapter for the lefty hub so you can put it in a truing stand to build up a wheel.

Actually it took me less than an hour to build, was away for the other 5 hours.

Same build as my cowan.

...that's supposed to be a trials frame? I think that fork is a little too much for it...


What year is that frame?

It's less slack than the cowan was with the pike actually. Only going to run it with 120 though instead of the full 140. IT's also not that frame year being that there is no v-brake tabs on it.

BTW, it's complete.

Took it on a somewhat maiden voyage tonight, and I did not like it at all. Too much stand over height nearly sent me off the side. So off went the parts off the Cannondale, and.. back they went onto the Kona.

It wouldn't be so bad if you had a rigid fork on it.
