Anyone run their 27.5 pike at 160mm?

Mines at 150. I'd like my bars 5-10mm higher and wouldn't mind 10mm more travel at all. I think the geo will handle it ok. Anyone have any negatives at 160 travel? I figure it is probably stiff enough to handle it?

I've got a 2014 (well, it started out as a 2014 model...) Pike DPA that's 130-160mm travel. I've been riding that fork for 6 years now, no issues. It's not as stiff as my Lyrik and Yari (both 170mm), but then, it's not supposed to be.

I did it with my 2016. I believe 2018 and beyond are 150mm only

All the 2020 Pike lineup goes to 160mm.

Upped it to 160. I have to say, every time I add 10mm to my fork I like it better. I have a hard time seeing myself ride a 130 or 120mm bike anymore. I guess I'm getting old and like the cush.
