Designed for the aggressive rider tackling everything on the mountain and launching hits in the bike park, the Cane Creek Helm Coil 29 Boost Fork provides increased mid-stroke support and a more linear spring curve than its air-sprung brethren, although with a weight penalty in the neighborhood of approximately 265 grams (that's about 9. 3 ounces). It retains the 35-millimeter stanchions of the air-sprung version, so you'll enjoy its stiff tracking through rough sections of trail and composed feel on bigger features in the park.

You can adjust the fork in 10 millimeter increments by moving an internal coil piston, no specialized tools needed. Stock forks include a 55 pound coil spring that's intended for riders weighing anywhere from 160 to 180 pounds, though you'll find 45 and 65-pound alternatives sold separately for lighter and heavier riders alike. Once you've situated the correct coil spring for your body weight, Cane Creek places a spring pre-load adjustment on the top left fork leg, which provides 16 clicks of adjustment. You'll find the same closed cartridge mono-tube damper used on the air-sprung version providing you with both high and low-speed compression tuning, as well as low-speed rebound adjustment. Additionally, the Helm Coil 29 Boost Fork comes with a 1...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
