Rockshox Pike RCT3

$480 GPB
2014 160mm travel Rockshock Pike RCT3 solo air for sale £480. Steerer tube is 211mm long Easily the best single crown fork I have ever ridden, Only reason for sale is that I have moved to a much flatter part of the country and they are a bit overkill. They have been well looked after but have been raced and ridden in the mud and wet so have some cable rub marks on the crown and marsh guard rub marks to the lowers inside the arch. Lowers have been helitaped from new to protect from rock strikes etc. Includes service kit and shock pump. Any questions, please ask. Cheers Ben.

Santa Cruz Nomad - Review
Doesn't change the fact that its much smaller than many of its peers in the same size. when you look at average heights a medium should fit up to 5'11" a large should be up to around 6'3" and the XL should be for people above that. Santa cruz aren't the only company undersizing bikes. Treks come up really short too in my experience. Some people might be OK with a shorter top tube but personally I like having a long enough reach that I'm not sat bolt upright like a granny heading down to the shops without having to run a long stem.

Not having a national healthcare system is ludicrous. Thank fuck for the NHS in the UK.

BMC Trailfox TF01 - Review
@bluechair84 A shock is designed to absorb only vertical impacts, so a frame needs to be stiff enough to allow it to work correctly. Yes a frame will flex but it has to be stiff enough to resist the deflection sufficiently that it can transfer that movement to the shock, so it can dampen the movement as the frame returns from the flex. Basically as no impact will be truly vertical or horizontal, the frame has to be able to transfer those forces to the damper to allow it to absorb the energy of the impact or the rider will be thrown off line and as the damper is set up to absorb the vertical component of the force a stiff frame that resists lateral flex will deal with impacts better than a flexy one as more of the force is absorb bt the damper rather than by the lateral movement of the rear triangle which is essenstially a rather odd shaped undamped spring.

BMC Trailfox TF01 - Review
Dirts review of the same bike say that its massively let down by under damped fox suspension and the sram equipped bikes are far far better. Probably why the rear end felt bad not the bike being too stiff. How would a stiff bike impede suspension performance anyway? If anything it would improve it as the shock wouldnt be subjected to any torsional forces when the frame/linkages flex around it. Another fairly useless pinkbike review.

also i clearly mentioned that it was saddle that was designed to relieve pressure not the bike. There are loads of papers on it, its the same as bad saddle position/shapes causing erectile dysfunction in men, as you keep mentioning woman's differing pelvic bone structure surely you realize that that is one of the main driving factors behind men's/ woman's saddles.
