Which 66 did you ride and like? The 05? What didn't you like about the Pike?
Sounds like a bad setup issue. None of these qualities you mention are what I would describe the Pike as being. In anything, the 66 is less efficient. You should give the pike a second chance if you want lightweight and burly. The new Lyric might fit the bill, also. There ain't anything flexible about the good ol' Z1. But I agree, the 66 is major confidence booster, I couldn't go back.DCRick said:yeh i rode an 05 66 rc, the pike felt nice and plush, wasnt the fork id idnt liek the handeling just felt un predictable and dodgey, was a mixture of too slow and just generally not being responsive and efficent
I am not familiar with DC bikes. I did a quick search and came across a frame that looks like an urban/dj. Is that it?DCRick said:yeh i agree with what you are saying, thats why i found it strange that the pike did not feel so great adn i disliked it so much. i will try it again but there was just soemthing baout it i did not like.
regarding the old height issues of the 66, what fork for the 06 range would be roughly the same axel to crown height as the old 66's? how would you rate using a fox 36 or maybe a 170mm 66 on my frame ? thanks alot =)
one las tthing, hwo hard is it to adjust the 66 between 170 and 150 travell ?
