- Next best alternative to Fox 36?
Lyrik? 730 Euro here is a fair chunk less. Or the X-Fusion Vengeance DLA
RS every bit as good as Fox, IMO (if not better) and X-Fusion stuff getting great reviews.Posted 4 years agoI_AcheMember
I have Lyrik DPA on my Enduro Evo and they are the best forks I have ever used and that includes the current model 36 float. The lyriks are so smooth and so adjustable its amazing.
However if I was buying new now I would be seriously considering either some X-Fusion Vengance or Slants depending on what your coming from and how you ride. I’m guessing you still have the E150s so you will be used to stiff forks, so the Vengance will be the best choice.Posted 4 years agogonzyMember
+1 for the marzocchi 55 forks but if you really have your heart set in some fox 36’s then have a look at this pair…Posted 4 years ago
Just been for a measure and my headtube alone is 160mm, so with headset, spacers and stem, I’m gonna be looking at around 240-250mm.
Looks like new is going to be the route I go down and reading very good things about the Vengeance.

Dunno – I have a feeling they are last years, but Freeborn are listing them as 2013. The fact that they are reduced from rrp would suggest 2012.
Don’t think there are much in the way of changes though – read that 2014 will have a gold (coloured) coating to the stanchions.Posted 4 years ago

that deal on the vans at flat out cycles is amazing. anyone used them? are they reliable?
You do realise they are 2nd hand, don’t you?
I think Vans are pretty bombproof, but heavy and no travel adjust.
Not sure about that site – the Vans look in good nick, but have you seen the state of the stanchions on the Marz 66’s they are flogging?Posted 4 years agonosediveMember
ahh. the vans are second hand, I didn’t realise that. still, that actually makes me feel better about them, at least they aren’t too good to be true.
My Lyrik DPA are currently in the shop for a service, while they are I am using a set of Vans on loan, I am really impressed with them. They dont seem much heavier if at all than the Lyriks and they seem to give a whole load more gripPosted 4 years agoscar4meMember
I’ve just switched from my X-fusion vengeance RC’s to some Future Shock E160TA’s.
Slight drop in stiffness, but saving 1lb in weight and I’ve now fully tuned them for my weight and riding style so feeling really good.

P.s. This probably doesn’t help you though as they only come in tapered steerer, and specialized say they don’t fit any other frame that their Carbon ones……
But they’ve fitted nicely on my Scott Ransom now 🙂 .
