Oh look mud I'd forgotten what that's like after our long hot summer!
(Oct 18, 2012 at 11:41)
you would only get this if your british

The movie comes from Poland and believe me, we do have rains and mud too.
Need proof? Here's 2 videos from the Poland-England soccer match 2 days ago:

HAHAHAHA! Laughing my ass off! That second clips is clsssic
(Oct 18, 2012 at 19:53)
Being a pom now in Oz, I miss mud. To be honest I miss dirt all we have here in Perth is sand and pea gravel!
(Oct 18, 2012 at 20:58)
Short and sweet......SICK!!!!!!
(Oct 18, 2012 at 13:40)
Nice to see someone riding the piss out of an Ibis...everyone I know with one rides like a pussy
(Oct 18, 2012 at 9:41)
So you're the guy that ruined these trails!
(Oct 18, 2012 at 11:27)
hahaha so true
(Oct 18, 2012 at 14:02)
Bah hahaha! Think he hit every puddle. ( *~* )
(Oct 18, 2012 at 20:45)
honestly haha, and slid on all the muddy corners. That's like... erosion x1000. Oh well, awesome video
(Oct 19, 2012 at 10:26)
That's probably his local trail
(Oct 18, 2012 at 9:52)
love bike clips mixed with classic hard rock. \o/

ACDC and Bikes?! My two favorite things...shred on
(Oct 18, 2012 at 20:05)
Sweet video. Love that AC/DC tune too. One question...where's the mud? I saw maybe 4 little puddle splashes. Mud is thick and deep. Half the mud puddles I go through on the local trails involve sinking to the discs, getting both feet covered, and powering through it. One of my favourite sections has a mud hole almost 10 feet long, you have to get huge speed, and pull the front end up or the bike will dig in. If you lose momentum or stop the bike, your f*ckED.
(Oct 19, 2012 at 10:56)
I don't think the point of the video was to show this guy riding through loads of mud. That was just the observation of the first few commentators. This just showed the guy riding this trail during the fall. Because otherwise, you're right. Looks like the ground was only slightly saturated from the previous days rain.
(Oct 19, 2012 at 8:12)
We have mostly desiduous forest where i live so its not only the mud u have to deal with but ur sliding around on all the leaves makes it real knar. It also hides alot of the rocks and roots on the trail which is awsome cause u dont see it comin till ur in the ruff section makes it quite fun! Might help if i changed over my tiers tho still have the dj tiers on the bike so im just sliding most the time lol!
(Oct 18, 2012 at 10:28)
Great vid, got me stoked to go ride! Love the choice of song..."let me put my love into you babe"...that's exactly how i feel about my bikes haha.
(Oct 18, 2012 at 14:21)
I wonder if he left any mud in the trail?....
(Oct 18, 2012 at 9:25)
I am stuck between 55's and Lyriks (170mm), was getting Lyriks before watching that....now back to unsure.
(Oct 18, 2012 at 12:04)
(Oct 18, 2012 at 13:18)
Lyrik is better on bigger bumps and 55's is better on small and medium bumps but 55's are more durable
(Oct 18, 2012 at 13:40)
go van/float 180
(Oct 18, 2012 at 15:50)
norcal neither the lyriks or 55's are 180mm forks which makes the van/float 180 not an option... good job!
(Oct 18, 2012 at 16:53)
(Oct 18, 2012 at 20:10)
10mm is not a huuge difference
(Oct 18, 2012 at 20:37)
I guess but the dude did after all ask for either a 55 or a lyrik... which id choose the 55, its like a debate between mallets and spds and a guy comes in saying go flats
(Oct 18, 2012 at 22:32)
(Oct 19, 2012 at 0:23)
the 55 titanium! feels like steel and weights like air!
(Oct 19, 2012 at 6:40)
Bos Deville 160
(Oct 19, 2012 at 12:46)
Lyrik U-Turn... Works exactly as well as coil and makes your uphills waaaay easier. Just get the one with DH damper, lock out is useless on such fork and makes everything harsher. If 55 then only RC3 Ti, Marzocchi has no clue how to make an air spring. If Air, then DeVille is the winner, eventually pick 36 Float. Though in general it's just daeeemm hard to beat Lyrik Utrun with MC DH, especially if you run firmer spring than you should. 55 RC3 Ri is the king of smoothness, but Lyrik is just giving this bit more than anything else
(Oct 20, 2012 at 16:19)
I was had lyrik now i have 55 rc3 ti evo. Never thinking about getting back to lyrik ...
(Oct 21, 2012 at 14:28)
I have gone for the Lyriks, I have heard that the 55 are best for small to medium hits, Lyriks for medium to bigger hits... which is more me.
(Oct 21, 2012 at 14:34)
Plus I got a great deal on the Lyriks, which was the real winner for me!
(Oct 22, 2012 at 0:02)
It Is also a huge difference whether tou have damper with lockout or without. The one without is öretty much as plush as 55 rc3 ti. And I think it's a bit strange to talk about big and small hits - 55 must be better on big hits as it has double the volume of the oil therefore there is more to take the energy. Butter smoothness comes from open oil bath. Lyrik is harsher but just more stable at speeds due to better low speed compression damping. Also wit UTurn you get travel adjust. Trust me though that smoothness or this stupid idea of stiction is a subject for slow guys - just ride fast enough and it eill sieze to be an issue...
(Oct 22, 2012 at 0:12)
I only got the small, medium, hard from riders of both forks, not from personal experience.
I ride pretty hard for an old guy (when I am not in a cast from racing injuries grrrr), I love my Boxxer WC's on my Dh bike, I hope these are even 80% as good as the boxxers. I am getting a 2nd hand 2012 set, just serviced, which if I don't like I can send back.
I guess next weekend will be timing between the 36 Float RC2 and the Lyrik, also climbing performance on the very technical stuff.
The 36's performed well yesterday up in the mountains, with the same old flaw of having to run them too hard to get even 130mm to work on the very slow rocky technical stuff, and having to run them slightly too soft with 2 extra clicks of high speed and low speed for the technical climbing. Then they fail on the tight, slow, rocky ridges, where they end up hooking up a little too much and you have to dab rather than clean sections. Down, soft they were mint still as the damping is doing its full job.
(Oct 22, 2012 at 1:49)
Honestly if not the travel adjust, I would go for 55. But I seem to be the one of very few to whom it is a game changing factor, so dunno. I treat is nearly as helpful feature as dropper post, especially if hou have some longer 15min+ climbs to do. And it truly makes your bike an allrounder, you drop for 120 for XC ride and on a good 6" frame, you can run with the lycra guys. Without travel adjustment it is a freeride or mini dh bike. I know a guy that can rip some really tough technical uphills on 160 float, but his skill and fitness is beyond reach of 99% of worlds cycling population. All the other people I know riding aggro XC: AM on 160 forks are not the people you want to take for a fast effective ride... They are sluggers, to whom dismounting and pushing is
not a shame
and lower travel setting makes you want this bit more, because you have at least some good balnce due to steeper HA and lower cockpit
(Oct 22, 2012 at 10:29)
I like the longer fork for hammering the technical climbs, I do ok at my climbing etc too up in the mountains.
Probably in your 1%
(Oct 24, 2012 at 0:29)
I just meant that Uturn works exectly as well as coil, weighing and costing the pretty much the same. No matter what anyone says and likes, even if power is not an issue - climbing on 120mm fork is just better in every single aspect than on 160mm. If you climb standing then 160 is no issue, if you can do that for an hour God bless you
But if you sit, especially on steeper gradients, you just can't put down as much power from your bent back and crumped body position as from straighter one, it's pure body mechanics. I made the test on 45 fire road uphill, where balance is not an issue - and I went up there 5 min faster on lower fork than on higher, I could pedal on harder cog for longer time - So it's a no-brainer to me
(Oct 24, 2012 at 15:24)
I like the technical climbs that last 1 hour plus.
I am not a fan of fire road climbs, in the likes of Spain on holiday they are fine as they get you to the top, but back home I have a DH bike for DH, an AM bike for the mountains and an XC bike (no dropper, 2.1 tyres, short travel out back etc) for thrashing around the flat stuff. Riding an AM bike up a fire road for 45 minutes on an AM bike is just not something that you would have to do over here much or at all to be honest.
For technical climbs a larger fork gives better ground compliance compared to a 120mm fork on a longer travel AM bike.
When you get it wrong the longer fork will let you away with more. Have the damping set correctly and it wont disappear into holes but carry over them.
I think I will get the Marz, have the Lyrik and the 36, test them all and sell what does not work best for me.
(Oct 18, 2012 at 18:10)
yeh thats pretty much dry compared to the uk at the mo
(Oct 18, 2012 at 18:22)
One of the few videos i see with the rider wearing a backpack
(Oct 18, 2012 at 14:17)
Marzocchi+HD = Magic
(Oct 18, 2012 at 16:22)

Hey Pinkbike... great news! We've discovered that the Earth is round and it tilts a little bit! It doesn't have to be raining where you are now!
(Oct 18, 2012 at 11:37)
Here here! Only fall in Northern Hemisphere, Southern is setting up for a mint summer! Come down and ride some sweet tracks in New Zealand.
(Oct 18, 2012 at 17:27)
Yep, Suny and 24C in Sydney. Time for some trails.

(Oct 18, 2012 at 12:21)
the music doesn't get better than that, Long live AC/DC!!!
(Oct 18, 2012 at 13:11)
Great video, but personally I feel it would have been much better without all the unnecessary speeding up.
(Oct 18, 2012 at 13:20)
But this is not speeding up
(Oct 18, 2012 at 9:21)
(Oct 18, 2012 at 20:19)
