The subject says it all really.

I'm a reasonably lightweight rider - 155 pounds. Mostly I do aggressive trail riding and small drops (absolute maximum 6 feet and only if there's a very nice landing). I like to do long distance rides from time to time so the ability to lower the travel on the Pikes is attractive. I think the Z1s will give me confidence to ride just a bit harder, but I'm also worried about the head angle and the height?

So Z1 or Pike?
