Has everyone dumped their Lyriks for Pikes
Still got mine but have observed the cheap forks out there.
For your money I doubt you can find a better fork!
26 lives on with me. Wont be changing soon and relishing the bargain 26″ wheels coming about as I’m looking for some (delete one) newer, stronger, lighter ones.hehe.Posted 3 years ago
Just in the process. Though will be putting the lyriks on something else, rather than selling.
Depends what you were after with the Lyriks really- I went with coils, it’s proper mini-dh performance but the weight loss is massive swapping to 160mm Pikes, if they’d existed at the time I’d have never had the Lyriks.Posted 3 years agoYetimanMember
Lyriks have been around for a while now so I just think there’s a lot of folk upgrading now that Pike prices are fairly reasonable. I noticed a similar trend with 36’s when Fox 34’s first came out, as I was trying to sell a 36 Float and there seemed to be loads of them in the classifieds.Posted 3 years ago
I have Lyriks from Mr Ron Jackson of this parish. They were removed from his Pitch because he couldn’t get along with them and fitted them to my Pitch and I thought they were fab. Pondering a bewildering range of options for new bike, replace bike, upgrade bike, all of the above ahhhrghhh!
Nowt wrong with my 26 inch wheels and Lyrik forks its just, well just because there are other shiny things and I am a weak minded fool e.g. a YT Industries Wicked 650B.Posted 3 years agosteviedSubscriber
Just got a new set of Lyrik RC2 DH. Was weighing up pros and cons of both. Decided on the Lyriks as they have been around longer so have a proven record, are 20mm axle (15mm would have made my DH wheels redundant) and save a decent amount of weight/gained 10mm travel compared to my old Van 36’s.Posted 3 years ago

Then its hardly a great comparison saying you saved loads of weight going from a coil fork to an air fork.
It is, if you’re getting comparable performance, which most accounts say you do (mine are still in the box). Coil isn’t a good thing in itself, it’s all about the results (having said that my air-sprung lyrik wasn’t far off the performance of the coil either, til it exploded while dealing with the dizzying stresses of sitting in the garage)
My hardtail has a set of Revelations in it. They weigh pretty much the same as a set of 160mm Pikes. That’s crazy talk. The weight difference from coil to air lyrik is much smaller than the difference from air lyrik to Pike.Posted 3 years ago
