I've had mine a very short while (1 week) on my new Turner 6pack. I have the 2006 air U-turn 454 (negative air, rebound, compression/lockout adjustments). This is a great fork & best thus far IMO-My prior 2 forks were: 2004 Fox Float RL 100mm and 2005 Fox Talas RLC 130mm. The Pike handles the small bumps much better than the Talas (I imagine due to the negative air chamber) and is way stiffer than either Fox, mainly due to the 20mm axel I would guess. The difference between the airs is one is U-turn (travel adjust b/t 110 - 140mm) and the dual air is not travel adjust, but from what I've read has a more 'spring' fork feel to it.
The 2006 pike fixed alot of the gripes from the 2005: the plastic u-turn knob & compression lever. The 06 just looks sweet/ w its ano blue & gold knobs, and outline letters. Really compliments the Turner logo IMO.
Hope this helps!
