Thanks for the heads up! I think I'm just gonna put that money towards a new Devinci Spartan XP which happens to come with a pike on the front! lol

Thanks, I keep hearing how good the pikes are these days anyways. I had one back in the day and loved it actually so I'm sure they are twice as good now. I think I might actually just take that 1000 that I would spend on the pike and just put it towards ... more »

is it really that much overkill you think? I mean the revelation on there right now is 35mm stantions and has 150mm of travel, this would only be 10mm more and 1mm more in stantion width...

But the pikes are at least 1000 bucks for a good one. This fox 36 is 650 on clearance, I would very much like a new fork and price seems very doable to me, 1000 for me is pushing it because at that point its almost more worth it to me to put that in ... more »

Fox fox fox!!! I think they are in the middle as far as the price category goes but are among the best when it comes quality. I wasn't sure if you meant XC spandex stuff or baggy stuff but I am talking about the baggy side of things. Also most of the ... more »

So I just saw that one of the online bike shops is having a crazy sale on their 26 inch fox forks and I think I have to take advantage of the rising popularity of the 650 forks lol. Which should I get for my Specialized stumpy evo comp 26? The fork on ... more »

I'm curious what you mean about the whole BB drop part? I know that Specialized has super low BB height as one of the defining characteristics but I don't know much about BB drop, could you explain it to me and how it relates to 650B Bikes?

I will FOR SURE see if I can ride them both a few times before I buy, does anyone know if there are places in Vancouver that do this? Where I live currently (and have lived before) there aren't any options to test ride those particular bikes (even if ... more »

I have had soo much fun being on my stumpy evo 26 the past few years so I am def a loyal spesh fan but I am moving to Vancouver this month for school so it would be cool to get a true canadian delicacy while I'm in canada. I wonder if the prices are ... more »

Tires have gotten pricey lately, I remember getting them for around 50 bucks each (Specialized Butcher DH) and now they are around $70 for the same dam tire lol. Also the new sram one by eleven stuff is far too expensive, good reason to buy shimano (holds ... more »
