stealth mode engaged with some new parts
38 performance elite with fresh ridewrap and fender
Zipp 3zero moto wheels with 203mm shimano rotors and 2.4 DHR / 2.5 Assegai combo
changed out the gold drivetrain bits for the oil slick
also sanded down the bushing in the dropper to free up a bit of stiction - unreal smoothness now

All black everything...... very nice.

All black is the new black.

A couple little upgrades Smile what a difference the fork makes!

Because of the stiffness or better damping?

I always thought that big badass forks are overkill on hardtails. Although I have never ridden a HT that's far from a XC bike, so my comment is more of a question

Depends on how heavy you are. I'm 50-ish KG and a 32mm fork is enough for me. If you were twice the weight you'd want a stiffer fork. Personally I don't like long travel forks on hardtails because of how much the geometry changes throughout the travel.

Better damping and more adjustability from the previous fork. As for overkill, I guess it depends on the purpose of your HT. Definitely wouldn't need the 36 for an XC build and my bike definitely isn't for XC haha... plus I'm 6'2 - 245lbs, the 34 would have been at it's limit.

Oh ya lol... it can handle way more than anything I can throw at it.

Hell yeah. Just got my first ride on my new 38 today. It’s a different feel than the 36 but both amazing. I’ll mostly likely be swapping time between them. Happy shredding[/Quote]

That 38 can handle serious business! What bike you put it on?

A weird experiment with a Boxxer.

A blast in the park.
And a dead bike on a mellow trail.

The Boxxer moves a lot compare to a Lyrik and even with 17-18% of SAG and almost fully closed LSC doesn't give you the same platform to push against.

I can't tell the difference in pedalling performance when seated. It maybe climbs a tiny bit better with the Boxxer, but I guess it's because of 10mm longer stem.

And... no more creaks in the CSU area )

My dad’s Bird Zero was brilliant, he sold it a few months ago and ended up getting an Aeris 160 in 27.5 and that thing’s been good so far too, hard to beat their prices over here in the UK tbh

I agree this bike is so much fun and capable.

And it compliments my AM9 so fine.
