140mm versions would be ideal.
Or even if there was a way of getting 160s and then dropping the travel a touch.
The manitous will be for sale once I've found suitable replacement. Not sure of their value though
That may be possibe by tinkering with spacers internally - could be worth a shout to Windwave. Quite a few people have reduced the travel on Fox 36's...
You could look out for some Talas 36's....adjustable travel, 20mm axle, super stiff and not too heavy. The early ones can be picked up reasonably cheaply if you can live with the poo brown colour.
I've got to say that I am not a huge fan of the Pikes. 'Ive had two pairs and thought the non-U Turn air ones were much better. The coil ones were undersprung out of the box (at least Fox send you a softer and a harder spring) and the U-Turn used to unwind itself. Didn't like the damping much either.
The air ones seemed better damped, didn't have the useless U-Turn and were more easily adjusted.
