    Default Tricked Out RS Pike

    sooo my RS pike is due for a service and pretty much one of the few OEM parts left on my Norco Sight...

    anyone running any fancy bits?

    fast cartridge? mrp ramp control? avalanche kit? luftkappe? coil conversion?

    have spoken to NSD and the "super pike" they offer sounds the best option atm, but dont really plan to drop $600 without exploring all options first...

    suggestions? feedback?

    $600 on a super Pike.....

    Buy a Manitou Mattoc and an IRT kit, sell the Pike. Instant super Pike plus change for more upgrades.

    ^^^ This. Sell the one you don't prefer and come out revenue neutral.

    Wow...that is a lot of money to blow on fine tuning an already expensive bike part. What are you needing to achieve that justifies the spend?

    Risky business right there. We know what happened when David Carradine reached for Nirvana.

    I've been interested in trying the avalanche open bath cartridge. No more bladder that needs to be sent in to service. Plus it's tuned to your weight and riding style.

    I've bought a Luftkappe for mine but haven't fitted yet. Probably the cheapest option of the lot. But I should also get my damper serviced after 2.5 years on it. So take that into consideration I guess.

    I figure by the time I lash out $250 on a service with all the low friction seals and what not it's hardly a drastic amount extra to go all the way to the super pike and add the fast cartridge and air spring mod...

    if anything I'm finding the oem pike RC can't keep up with the dbcoil il, but I'll admit I have barely played around with the tuning to get it sorted...

    I do find currently the pike sits rather low the second it's pointed down the rough stuff and doesn't really inspire any confidence to hit it hard...

    Either way I go, it looks like I'll spend some time with a shockwiz and see how it goes...
