IMO, Pike. Slightly taller a2c, and sure there is some inkling of support for this new 15mm stuff...
20mm is very tested and supported fairly industry wide. Easy to get fairly anywhere. You'll like the Pike, IMO. As well, since you've said the budget isn't overflowing, you can find some good pricing on new/used Pike forks for much better deals than you're likely to find a new Fox fork coming out with a new "standard" axle setup.
Travel adjust is a "meh" feature for me at this point. I'd bet you'd get used to riding the Pike at 140mm and not mess with dropping the travel down much.
