my p8 build is progressing.. i got almos all parts. i went with 29er ican 35 mm rims with 2.4 tires the shock is monarch plus rc3 200x57. i'm almost sure the fork will be rockshox pike. i wonder though should i go for 140 or 150 mm. what head angle do you guys have with 140 forks? i d like to get mine close to 67.5 at least.. will 150 be ok with 29 inch wheels?

It would be fine on a 150 fork.  I just responded to your post on MTBR as well, but mine is a measured 67.8 degrees with 27.5+ tire and a 140mm fork.

Yes.  Go take a look at both of their geometry sheets.  You will see the difference.  P9 is designed for more travel.  As well as a slacker HTA.  Different size seat post, etc.  Just go look at the geo sheets for each and you will see clear differences.

Actually, it is.  You need to remember how seat tube angle is measured.  It just looks super slack because of the bend in the tube.  Draw a line from BB center line to top of seat post.  And there is no 29er version.  The same frame fits both.

Or were you referring to endo_alleys post?

Mine will be a 29er this year.  150mm front fork and a 200 x 57 rear shock.  I can measure the actual rear travel and let you guys know.  But Im assuming its around 130-135mm of rear travel with the 57mm stroke.

True true... my eyes fail me lol. Im debating on a P8 or P9. Im leaning on the P9 even though a P8  would be a better choice.
