Hey pinkbike! Well I'm buying a new 2015 Specialized Stumpjumper Carbon Evo 27.5 and I'm buying the frame with the rear shocks witch are fox and I'm curious to what forks I should buy for my bike because I'm more of an endure and trail rider. What are your opinions on which are the best for what I'm looking for?

PIKE!!!!!

PIKE ALL THE THINGS!!!!!!

seriously though the pike is a stupid awesome fork.

beefy stanchions and uber stiff.

Pike. Performance/reliability /price ratio is simply unbeatable. And there a doddle to self service.

Pike or mattoc.

Fox its good, but i feel better with pike or mattoc.

Tbh, i like mattoc a little bit than pike. It seems more supportive and bottomless. But its easier to maintain pike imo. It would be not a big thing if you don't service your fork by yourself.

I've ridden a bunch on the Pike, the 2015.5 Fox 36, and the 2014 BOS Deville.
The Fox is quite a bit better than either the Pike or the Deville, which are both very nice forks. The Fox took me a ride or two to dial in. I added a token, and fine tuned it a bit, then holy shit. It's close to a DH fork feel. Very stiff, and when the going gets gnarly it's so composed. Amazing fork.

Out of curiosity what is the price difference in the US from the Fox 36 and pike. In UK foxes are pretty much double the cost to buy. Never ridden the new 36 but I don't doubt that it's a better fork. But no way it's twice as good

If you buy the foxes used they are always like 300 dollars more expensive than the pikes. And if you buy them brand new it's like 200-400 dollar difference and the pikes perform the same or even better than the foxes but depends on what type riding you do and what kind of setup you have.

A friend of mine,who has a bike shop and is an authorised fox service an sales centre,would only have fox suspension on his bikes,he tried an x fusion sweep roughcut damper,at a trade expo,and says its stunning.he runs them on his pivot now.just another option folks

The fox is more expensive, but I found it to be worth it. I got it at Suspensionwerx in North Vancouver. They know how to set them up really well.

I nearly wanted to ask if we did't forget the X-fusion sweep but i just saw someone mentioned it.Friend of mine says it's off the hook. But, I don't want to hurt anyones feelings, so 'Pike all the way'!
