    Couldn’t resist the Lyriks.

    If anyone finds themselves with a Pike too many, then I’d buy them as I missed out and struggling to find a decent priced 130mm fork for a Tallboy build. Ta.

    I’ll be listing a fox rhythm 34 130mm next couple of days. If of any interest?

    There’s what looks like a set on eBay for just under 500 quid!

    Not surprised. Happened with the DT Swiss forks from last year. Also some of RF ride cranks have appeared for £80.

    Disappointingly (but not surprisingly) CRC oversold the Pikes – none in my delivery…

    Awaiting a refund :-/

    What they indicated dispatch but nothing no pikes arrived. That sucks.

    That’s frustrating. Mine arrived yesterday, sorry. My delivery notifications confused me saying my package from WIGGLE was out for delivery, despite it being these forks ordered via CRC.

    I’m still missing my bargain RF cranks from another recent PSA – the other part of the order has already arrived.

    Mine have arrived. Fitted and ridden round the block. Feel very nice. Just in time for the weather to change ⛈️

    Mine came yesterday. Dark purple decals – very odd.

    Going to get a set of them Invisiframe ones, just have to decide on the colour as neither of the orangey options are a close enough match.

    Mine arrived – no decals – but some stealth ones in the box …

    @tthew what colours are you interested in? Mine haven’t arrived yet but bike is purple so could be interested in a swap.

    Mine arrived today….. nothing in the box at all, except the fork and Axle. No stickers, even on the fork, or tokens, pump or anything.

    Not that this matters, as i like them ‘murdered out’ naked.

    @tthew what colours are you interested in? Mine haven’t arrived yet but bike is purple so could be interested in a swap.

    Like a coppery orange, so unlikely whatever you get will suit. If you don’t get purple send me a DM and I’ll post them to you anyway.

    They’re OEM ones so you won’t get all the extras, although no stickers is odd. Maybe they slipped out of the lid in transit. It was literally just 2 flat leg stickers in mine.

    Thanks @tthew.

    Wasn’t expecting a pump as OEM forks. Got stickers (dark purple, look nice) and tokens though.

    Looking at the stanchions they only have sag markings for 130mm and 140mm. Hope that doesn’t stuff anyone hoping to lengthen them.

    I nearly threw the stickers away. They had slid under one of the folds in the box. Got two tokens and a safety information leaflet too. Never occurred to me there might have a been a pump with them. Shame as I need a new shock pump

    They are just markings. I previously took a set from 130 to 160 no bother.

    No pump or tokens here either. But liking the stealthy purple stickers! At least I have some spare tokens from my Revs if there are none actually in the fork already.

    Right so imagine, hypothetically like, you have a brand new set of Pike Select+ in hand and a Lyrik RC on the way.

    Can you swap the damper and make a charger lyrik?

    Then flog the downgraded pike….

    All hypothetical. Just think of the M&S points.

    I’m really tempted by the Lyriks, what would it cost me to get someone to reduce the Travel to 140mm? Realistically this is probably the max my frame can handle

    Premier Icon snotrag

    Spare tokens and (2020 Santa Cruz tall boy coloured) browny/purple stickers in mine.

    Jsut fitting them to my Scandal now – 1881grammes with maxle and 180mm steerer. Pretty good really!

    I have bought the Pikes but wonder if I should have gone Lyrik. Can you reduce the Lyrics to 140mm?

    Premier Icon rockthreegozy

    My 2020 retail boxed Lyrik Ultimates didn’t come with a pump so I think RS stopped that a while ago..

    Reducing Lyriks to 140 can be done easily..

    Looks like high demand. Three days after ordering my Lyriks are still “processing”. Not a long time but unusual for CRC. Let’s hope they haven’t oversold them.

    So our house has both pikes and lyrics…..thanks psa….but the squabbling has started….which is the best damped fork? Which is the simplest fork to lockout?

    I’d go pike every time. Unless your a big hitter destroyer of equipment !

    Unfortunately not. For some reason Lyrik/Yari and Pike/Revelation chassis use different dampers. Something to do with the thread pattern IIRC.

    A few years ago I think, shame as they fetched OK money on ebay so it was a nice little cashback.

    Mine are going on your old Stage 4.

    looks like the Lyrik ultimates are a decent price now…

    https://www.chainreactioncycles.com/rockshox-lyrik-ultimate-boost-fork-2020/rp-prod208348

    I was looking a couple of days ago and these were just under £800, so a decent saving!

    42mm offset too!

    I paid similar for the Lyriks pre Covid and Brexit from Germany so that is a decent price..

    Mine are fitted to my Scandal – look and feel great.

    But…. my front brake stopped working after the swap – lever straight back to the bar! Grrr….
    Swearing and bleeding (the brake) didn’t make any difference. Looks like the pistons are sticky, so after having pushed them back ready to aligning in their new home on the new for they’re only moving out a small amount then retracting back, rather than “ratcheting” out with each pump of the lever until contact is made. Also hard to press back into place, so a piston & seal kit is on the way, and hopefully I’ll have a nice freshly rebuilt caliper by next week.

    @chakaping I’ve bought them to go on the scandal but with half an eye on going 2 into 1 again and a Stage Evo is on the list!
