Rockshox Pike A2 (?) 27.5 inch RCs

Post by Mr Moofo »

I have a pair of RS Pikes - RCs from around 2018. They were originally 130mm travel - but now has been taken to 140mm using the upgraded Debonair air spring.
They have covered about 1000 miles - there are a few marks from cable rub - and a new set of decals would go a miss ( and I probably have a set TBH).
Comes with the maxle and two tokens
Looking at 200 GBP , but open to offers
Pick up locally ( I would travel to Surry Hills is that helps) - or postage at the cost of the buyer.

Photos later as I am just cleaning them.

( Only reason for change is I bought a new set of Pikes - and now have 29 inch pikes on my 27.5 HT)

Just upgraded the forks on my Trek Fuel EX 2021 to Rockshox Pike Ultimate 2.1 RC2 29" 150x42mm. Now everything on the bike is better than me so now no room left for me to blame equipment for anything! ;)

(LBS moved the crown race for me, the rest was easy sailing)

Taking the down race off should have been a piece of piss - most are split now so very easy to remove. In the olden days it was something else.
I have to say that the new pike Select + I have on the 29er are very good ... and way better than me!

Nope, to my surprise the race wasn't split so my LBS (Geared Bikes and Wear in Chichester) got the race off for me using one of these:

I've known them ever since I bought my Gary Fisher Big Sur from them over 10 years ago.

Let the bike rip on a downhill yesterday and the forks are way better than me.
