New Fork for an Knolly Endorphin ?

Need a new fork for my Endorphin! I am currently running a Talas 36 which i find harsh over small stuff and never used the travel adj. I cracked the lowers at the pinch bolts so they need replacement and I miss the plushness of my 66.

I ride mostly AM with the odd epic thrown in.

I am trying to decide between a 2011 Van RC2 and a RS Lyrik RC2DH.

Both seem to be about the same price and i have ridden many Van's before, so I know what they feel like and how it performs. I would appreciate some feeback on the Lyrik if possible.

Cheers Garry

66 or 55 as you miss the plushness.

I'd go for the Fox, it looks better and performs better.

I've heard good things about the Lyric.

Maybe the X-Fusion Vengeance? I've heard really good things about it too.

I wish but have they (Marz) gotten past their reliability issues. Reviews and buy and sell say NO !!!!!

Coil Rockshox Lyrik or Domain is your best bet for plushness over small stuff.

But if you can afford the Lyrik then go for it Wink . The new DH damper is supposed to be really great.

He makes a good point, BOS forks have the best damping you can get, if you can foot the bill!

tbh they really arn't that much more that what rockshox fox and marzocchi are charging for their top of the line 160 forks
EDIT: infact its cheaper than the top lyrik, the top 55 and the roughly same price as a kashima coated float 36
