Shiny new toys

Some shiny new RockShox Pikes arrived today (thanks Brett). Chunky, heavy, nice. So far I’ve managed to bung them on the ‘dale and razz them around the garden. They’re proper plush!

They’re a shorter fork than the All Mountain 3s were, so the front of the bike’s a bit lower. I wasn’t sure I’d like it, but it seems nice enough. I guess I’ll get to test it properly tomorrow.

They seemed to work OK yesterday apart from giving you a puncture (althought hat may have been due to a rock or something equally pointy).

Mmm, that was an interesting moment. I’m very glad it wasn’t the front wheel!

Gert big DH tube in there now though, sorted.
