yes. I'd sworn off RS, but the pike sounds too sweet to pass up... so I've ordered one. Anyone know if any of the local shops stock the spring kits? I know any shop can order them from qbp, just thought I'd see if any have it around.

Thanks.

I dont believe any shops will stock them, but you can definitely order them and most would be glad to fulfill your request. Try SMC.

For which bike Eric?
I've got a haro extreme-1 (single pivot, ~8lbs, 5 or 6 inch travel) that I ride for rough trail stuff, and when I'm feeling too lazy for my ss. It's also my jumping bike (when I'm able to.). I've had a 2001 z1-mcr on it, and lately the difference in stoutness between the z1 and my superT (and even the fox air fork on my ss) has been bothering me, plus the fork needs new bushings and seals (it's been great for 4 years, so this isn't a complaint). I picked up a foxRC with pro pedal on ebay to replace the stock generic xfusion shock, and decided to pick up a new fork as well. I looked at sherman flicks and nixons, but the reviews and personal experiences others have had with these forks made me skitish. I also looked at picking up a marz z150 or one of the new z1-s, but I wanted something a little lighter, as I do climb on this bike. The other problem with the long travel Marz forks is that in reduced travel mode you've only got 30mm of travel.. Reviews on the pike have been glowing, and it should be rugged enough for the occasional cased jump and 2-3 footer. We'll see.

ordered them from universal. Now I've just gotta track down reducers for my haro. Anyone got old reducers from a stinky, haro, or loco sitting around?
