    How is the Pike?

    If you're familiar with the RockShox's line, here is how's the Pike: A mini BoXXer that makes your front end feel like a Revelation but tracks like a Lyrik, that is how good the Pike is. Straight out of the box it is smoother than any Kashima coated Fox.

    Nice, I definitely dig the more understated looks of the Pike over the over-the-top gold finish of its Fox counterparts. Rockshox also has better compression tunes than Fox's CTD sh*t.
