I LOVE the pike. I have ridden a few different forks in this category, the Fox 34, 36, the MRP Stage and the Rock Shox Lyrik. You simply cannot beat the stiffness of the Pike Chassis, the weight, and just how buttery smooth this fork is right out of the box. If you are building a bike that is 160mm or more, the Lyrik is amazing, and after break in, the Fox 36 is pretty sweet. The Pike dominates it's category though.
Bouncy Out Of The Box (Bag, whatever...)

This fork had almost no break in period and continues to function incredibly well given the price. Buttery smooth and feels stiff and solid. Fox makes a great product as well but I'll stick to the Pike for now..
