Woot, And WannaGetGood Rides Agian

I got my 2005 Pikes up and running. Since my old Bombers got ran over. Also, I got a new Single track with formula 20mm hub to go with it, becuase my old wheel was bent and only had a 10mm Deore hub.

Its amazing! Handles like a cloud. I really like it better than my old Marzocchi, but then agian it was old and used quite abit. But it is defiently worth the $300 I spend on it. Me and some friends are making a movie soon, so you can see more of it there.

A Kona Stuff and a TV remote in one picture, all that's missing is a beer and pizza. Happiness as we know it.

Nice choice! Would you mind giving a review after a bit of riding on it?

For DylanTremblay,

It is a very good dirt jumper fork. It takes in all the bumps, and is very easy to pump of a jump or a berm. I was used to it in 5 minutes. Me and some friends are getting a video together soon, so you can see it in action.

For Junkyard,

It handles like a Pike?
