This is for future reference as I don't have the dinero to replace the Pike yet, but it looks like 160mm fork or better is okay on the Reign, I was looking at the setups database. Won't void the warranty?
Exactly. My TALAS 160 is only 7mm taller than your Nixon at 545mm A2C. Also, worth noting is the integrated headset helps the Reign's front end feel lower since you don't have the extra stack height of the BB cup.GiantCHaDSTeR said:actually what you guys should look in to is the axle to crown height of the fork.. there are some forks out there that has a long travel but low axle to crown and some fork has shorter travel but higher axle to crown.. one of my friend has an 05 Marzocchi AMSL 130mm which has axle to crown of 538mm which is the same axle to crown as manitou nixon 145mm
No worries....glad to help. I think the Domain would be a good option or perhaps picking up a used Vanilla 36. The costs of those Totem is ridiculous as are the 36's new.mtnbkrdr98 said:Thank you EBX - you are always so helpful to folks on here, and I appreciate it!
I'm going to look into a Domain 115-160, the Lyric is too expensive. Coil If I can get it.
So far am loving the bike, and thinkt he bearings and everything will hold up fine. Look for somemore pics!
Guys sorry about the wrong information about the axle to crown on the 130mm AMSL, the axle to crown is 518mm.. I was think about my 150mm AMSL while responding to the thread.ebxtreme said:FSR......you're right.
he old Z150's and the newer Z1's (I think the AM series too) at 150mm of travel are 538mm A2C. My '04 Z1 (130mm) is 518mm A2C.
