Rock Shox Lyrik air and 2010 RS Totem coil

$425 USD
I have a 2011 RS Lyrik RC2L Air 170mm tapered fork and a 2010 RS Totem RC2 coil 180mm tapered forks for sale. These have been sitting for a bit and I have no reason to keep them. They both have fresh seals and oil. They both have a couple scratches on the lowers but nothing on the stanchions. The Lyrik has very little use, maybe 10 rides and then the frame (Canfield) was sold and that's it. Steerer length is 7-7/8" The Totem came off my Morewood and it has more use, but still very good shape. Totem steerer is 7-1/4" Lyrik- $425 Totem- $325

Niner WFO-9: Review
The top tubes usually aren't, and I do think it strange they went with a shorter TT on the second iteration of the WFO. Feels good for me, but if you want/need a longer TT maybe ride a size up. Unless you need something longer than 24.4", then buy something else I guess. I'm in MA too. The bike is unbelievably capable and I'm really trying to push the bike and myself. I've been having a blast on it- does everything I've asked it to. I started 10psi over my weight as it felt soft and kept adding more pressure. Still doesn't feel super stiff. Unlike my Float 180. Sigh. Kashima coat marketing and all. It's no good. Rock shox has introduced the Pike in DJ form, but what they need to do is introduce it in a 180mm travel single crown to replace the Totem. And do it yesterday.

Niner WFO-9: Review
Interesting, but they tested a medium and look at the stem in the pictures above. Doesn't look like a 90mm stem to me. Also, why spec a 90mm stem with 780mm wide bars on a very aggressive 29er? Wouldn't the resulting steering be slow and awkward and not act as this bike is intended?

Niner WFO-9: Review
I was in the market for a new trail/AM bike and I ended up with a WFO. So far it's been an absolutely brilliant bike. I did add a dropper post, swapped out the Avid brakes for Shimano XT's, added a blackspire taco bash, and tossed the grips after 2 runs at Highland for some Renthal lock-ons. For trail only, I think some may like the grips, but when you point it downhill, those chunky grips are horrible. For some reason the WFO I bought, came with a 90mm stem. I'm guessing they just threw it on as it left the factory, but now I've got a 40mm Chromag installed. I have a medium as well and agree that the reach/cockpit may feel short, but I don't have long arms or broad shoulders so it feels good for me. I left the bars uncut at 780, but I've been debating cutting 10mm off each end. The front is tall with the Pike 160 so I have only 1 spacer under the stem and lowering the fork for long climbs definitely helps. I also run quite a bit more air than the fork recommends for my weight (around 175#) at about 140 psi. I've got it set up for the harshest landing, but it still feels incredibly plush. I've also realized that the 2012 Fox Float 180 on my Kalula is nowhere near as good. Not even close. Berms are a little different on a 29er and this bike is no exception. I've only had it for 2 months now and it's a learning curve to really get it through berms at speed. I'm getting better, but you have to force it a little more. Get lazy and it'll bite you. Overall, I jump, drop, send and pedal this thing everywhere. It's very playful, FAST, and very rewarding. I wasn't considering a 29er for an AM bike, but I'm glad I went with this. If you get a chance to ride/demo one of these, don't hesitate.

First Ride: RockShox RS-1 Fork – Carbon, Inverted, Expensive and for 29ers Only
I know Waki, I know. And on a tangent, I must admit, I'm big fan of your work. Well done. Why so serious? I don't know, I suppose it's frustration at this point. I know the whole industry is evolving rapidly, but that's life and change is inevitable. Evolve or die. And thanks Robby, it's appreciated.

First Ride: RockShox RS-1 Fork – Carbon, Inverted, Expensive and for 29ers Only
If you've come here to complain about the price, go away. If you've come here to complain about the wheel size, go away. Sure, it is expensive, but it has a purpose and I'm glad to see RS doing something different. I know this isn't the first inverted fork, but I'm excited to see how it performs and how it may change the suspension industry, if at all. I'm not interested in such a short travel fork at the moment, but maybe down the road when the price drops, if this is a sucess. But to you people who constantly complain, nag, and b**** about the aforementioned topics, give it a rest. RS doesn't care and neither do most of us. And what about the X-Fusion Revel? Not quite as expensive at around $1800, but close. Criticism is one thing, but your incessant complaining is on a whole different level. Challenge yourself with a different perspective and an open mind. Though I do miss the more DH oriented stuff, I'm glad to see all the trail/AM reviews as I was in a need of a new AM bike. Thanks PB and RC. Edit- Apologies for the rant everyone.
