Well thanks Guys for the Input! I guess i will go for the lyric or the yari, as they are cheap, they have the same crown/stanchions as the Lyrik ultimate so i can change and upgrade the damper If i feel Like needing better Equipment in the Future without buying a News fork and they should be easy to Set Up (what i Like about a hardtail ist to keep Things simple, would go for a coil fork but i dont find any with a similar Performance for this price- or at least i dont know of any).

The pike would be a good Option too, but the cheapest offer is 150€ more than the offer for the lyric.

I really like the Marzocchi Bomber Z1with a coil.

Haven't ridden this thing in quite a while. Fork needs updating badly.
Seat and pedals were a test.

i like it, nice color. have you considered a dvo sapphire?

Yes, until a good friend broke his Onyx within a few months of owning it. I‘ll probably end up buying a Pike.

The damper broke, as in it did not work properly anymore and leaked oil.

My sapphire was the third worst fork I've ever had.
Had to run OTT all the way tight to give it any semblance of small bump performance, and it developed bushing play, twice.
Had a few friends with similar issues on DVO.
Only forks I had that were worse were Marzocchi 350cr and Suntour Durolux

that's interesting, as the dvo's are usually reviewed positively. maybe they're just not made for hardtails. thanks for the info, guys!

Mine was on a fully.
I think their quality control is just bad.

Greetings from California. Just showing off my new frame that I built up with parts from my old singlespeed and some new bits. This is the pinnacle of MTB technology. It weighs a lot and is fun to ride downhill, not so much uphill.

Everyone that I know of locally with a DVO is very happy with their forks/shocks. I have a Diamond boost on my ht that I bought used and the only issue that I had was the damper unthreading itself in two and losing all damping. Unfortunately it happened on a race. Fortunately, it was an easy fix and only cost me a lower leg service. I like that it has so many tuning options while being easy to setup at the same time. I've read of some issues from Ibis AF owners mostly, could it be that going OEM for them affected quality control?

I am one Second away from buying it Wink

About the other Suggestionen: the pike would be perfect, but the ATC of the longest possible Version (150mm) is a little to short. About the marzzocchi, i dont wanna spend that much.
