Hi all - I'm riding (and still enjoying) a 2014 Transition Bandit 27.5 up here in southern New England and looking for some advice. I performed a full service on the XFusion Sweep recently (and decreased travel from 160 it was set at down to 140). The fork seems ok, but lacks any sort of small bump sensitivity (I get barely get any sag unless I run it way way below recommended pressure). From what I've read this seem somewhat common with these forks. I've seen a couple older Pikes available for around $300 and was wondering if anyone has thoughts if that would be a worthwhile upgrade? Any other 34 sanction forks that might be available around that pricepoint I should consider? I'm not looking to throw a ton of money at at 2014 bike, but it's definitely still serving me well for the type of riding I tend to do, so I don't mind a mild investment to upgrade the front end.
