I'm torn between these 2 fork choices. Going with 100mm, I weight 250lbs, but ride pretty smoothly. Is the pike worth the extra cash for a more rigid setup? Thoughts

I rode a Pike DJ for a while and it was never rigid enough for me. I loaded that thing up with the tokens too but still too squishy. I have heard that the circus locks out completely (Cody Gessel rides it) but never tried it as I ended up buying a rigid fork and totally love it --> I just posted a video of myself riding it in this same DJ/Street section of the forums

Thanks I'll check out the video. I think the circus might be the way to go, it costs have of what the pike is too.

the pike is supposed to be an amazing fork but the circus has so much more value for the price and I don't think you'd be missing much cause the high end forks are all very similar.

Being that I weigh 250, I was leaning towards the pike due to the larger stanchions as the fork "should" be less flexy,but at $300 more I don't think the difference justifies the cost.

Yes they have lol.
After some thinking I decided on the Circus experts, they are ordered. I still bounce trails with my wife occasionally so the suspension will do what I need. I'll post when the fork arrives.

Can you get us a short review on your decision, buying the circus expert?
