Model/Year: Pike 454 U-Turn 2009

Pros: - Consistent and reliable
- Interchangeable parts with Pike and Argyle
- Rideable travel adjustments
- Motion control enables rider to adapt the fork to any terrain
- Maxle axle system

Cons: - Heavy for the amount of travel
- Slight flex
- Rebound knobs are known to fall out during riding
- U-Turn springs are expensive and hard to come by

Recommendation: The U-Turn travel adjust puts the Pike far above all of the other travel adjust forks out there, but the weight makes it a tough choice.

Heavier springs are quite expensive and hard to find; however, the motion control can be adjusted to act like a heavier spring.

Something does have to be said about the Pike's ability to be ridden in any of the available travel ranges.
