Are you talking about the RCT3 damper, not the RC2?

I have the RC2, the RCT3 isn't a viable option imo, it's a compromise across the board just to have a lockout.

I like my charger rc2.1 in my zeb.

I also like my 34 with grip2.

Bikes are pretty good rn

Well that's what I have on my PIKE's the RC2. I WAS going to upgrade to the RCT3, never did this season. Still have NO ISSUE with these forks, very impressed. The response and feel is as good as anything I could've expected so I never had a need to do anything. Rebound is great, compression is great, never even think of my forks when riding. I like the "set-it-n-forget-it" kind of tuning they have.

But honestly I was responding because I haven't heard of that issue with the RCT3 until I see it mentioned here, and I'm both curious and maybe even glad I haven't had the upgrade done yet because I don't "feel" anything I'd want to change in the way they've performed this season.

We're truly in the golden age of bikes right now IMO.

I think golden age was pre covid (due to both pricing and availability). But at least this is a veeeeery good moment

Or we keep telling ourselves that bikes are so good right now because we can’t get new ones!

Ridden/sold a few Pike ultimates by now, pretty comfortable rebuilding them at home, plus the silver is matchy-matchy with the rest of my kit. Total tart move. The 34 has been mostly great.

Not a tart move, this is the way.

I went from Factory 34 to Pike Ultimate, and what a difference! Nothing wrong with the 34, but the Pike just felt loads better in every aspect except weight. Much more confidence on the gnar now too!

This change is on the yeti?

That's kinda where I'm at. The 34 is a great fork, wouldn't hesitate to get on a bike with one. I just like spending money I don't have.

Edit; this conversation in tandem to mechanics needing to get paid more is kinda where I'm at in life. Lmfao.

oh man, i have been crushing hard on that ranger recently. i seriously considered buying one to replace my sb5.5 but ultimately got the 130lr instead. i bet that thing is a riot on the all-day rides. can you confirm =)
