First Look: RockShox Lyrik and Yari
Would make me laugh if their cheap version is better than this new Lyric or Pike. I have to say even though my Pike is ok I haven't been blown away with its performance as per magazine test reports.

1 Question - The Biggest Mistake That's Been Made In Mountain Biking
Very easy for me. The biggest mistake is the industries obsession with carbon fibre and the obsession with massively over charging for it .

Oh one last point before I totally sign off. If carbon is "better, lighter, stiffer, stronger" then it's makes me howl with laughter that they made the faceplate out of metal. Just goes to show its absolute bullshit.

From now on I will comment no more on carbon stuff. But mark my words. When someone has a serious injury or worse because someone put their faith in a carbon bar, stem, pedal spindle or whatever else happens to be made out the bloody stuff and it fails through no fault of the rider then........you know what I will say.

Think about this for a minute. You are hammering down you local trail as fast as you can. The only thing that is holding your bars to you bike is 4 bolts. These 4 bolts are screwed into what is basically a lump of cloth and glue!! What would rather have to stop you bars snapping off your bike...your bolts screwed into this stuff(at the correct torque setting of course) or your bolts screwed into a solid lump of metal????

You are absolutely joking!!!! A carbon stem???? This is getting beyond ridiculous. Who in their right mind would want to risk their lives by putting this on their cockpit? What next carbon pedal spindles? carbon spokes? carbon stanctions? carbon bolts? When is this carbon obsession going to stop.....oh I know ...when the latest carbon solution catastrophically fails and someone looses their life!!
