    I recommend this shock to anyone who needs a bit more travel, willing to spend the money, and wants a GREAT ride.

    Wonderful fork.

    Pros
    Great Ride, Very adjustable, gives plenty travel, and does not bottom out easily. Lock out works well for when climbing.

    I ride with this fork on my stumpjumper FSR, and I use fox float with boostevalve, and these 2 work very well together. I love riding with the fork, and it allows you to go much faster, and do things you never thought you could do on your MTB.

    Also a bad A looking fork!

    Cons
    No Cons, love the fork so much!

    This fork is everything an all-mountain fork needs to be. It fully lives up to its reputation. Light, stiff, totally adjustable, you are left to wonder "what else can it do?"

    Pros
    Excellent small bump compliance, 160mm travel, light weight, HUGE adjustability, highest end Pike fork made for that year

    Cons
    say what?

    Definitely, it's buttery smooth. It doesn't take a large bump to break the stiction free as most forks require. Stiction or the lack thereof equals an increase in grip or so they say.

    Pros
    Weight
    Plushness
    Damping
    Looks

    Cons
    15mm TA only because my old fork was a 20mm TA

    Great out-of-the-box fork. Very user friendly. Easy to tune

    Pros
    Excellent small bump. Feels more like a Cadillac. RCT features 3 trail modes (climb, trail, open). Rebound and low speed compression. Bottomless tokens are so easy to install.

    Cons
    long term durability is questionable as most internal bits are plastic.

    Just a great fork! Buttery smooth and just the right amount of adjustability.

    Pros
    Plush, stiff stanchions, great look

    Cons
    a little heavy, if you are really concerned.

    If Superman rode an enduro bike, this would be his fork.

    Pros
    Very lightweight, adept to climbing and descending, and is very capable of doing anything. Its different modes all perfectly match whatever discipline you need at the moment. It's also very tuneable.

    Cons
    None

    A great fork for Trail / AM bikes. The long 160mm version is the one I tested and loved it very much. Once the for was tuned it was very much a set and forget fork. IT just works great.

    Pros
    Excellence in everything. A no BS fork great for that Trail / AM bike. Excellent low speed and high speed dampening. The chassis is stiff enough for that rocky terrain.

    Cons
    None

    That is unless you don't have QR15 wheels.

    Reviewing RockShox Pike:
    ***

    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.

    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
