RockShox Pike A2 Boost 2017

The A2 Pike Boost was a boost specific version of the A1 Pike.  It uses a 10mm wider version of the same 35 mm stanchioned chassis but has finer threads on the stanchions (same as Lyrik/Yari).  It was available in 27" Boost and 27+/29" Boost and the dropouts are machined larger to fit Torque-Cap front hubs.  Everything else is the same as the A1-A2 non-boost Pike.
