Yeah, I only do carbon repair on bikes when I know that the customer intends to keep it forever.

Hi Everyone, currently I have a red U-turn spring on my lyriks which when I check says it's only medium? I'm a fair bit heavier than I should be but it feels more like a stiff spring, anyone know where I can get a softer spring for 09 lyriks?

This is essentially my question from a couple pages back. Absolute crickets. I think you and
My nephew are SOL.

I found boxxer springs on this site https://www.lamacycles.com/en/rockshox/forks/fork-repair-parts/rockshox-coil-spring-soft-yellow-fork-repair-parts

Could try cutting a boxxer spring

Have to account for increase in stiffness if cutting down a coil spring so not that straightforward as it seems.

if you go to the SRAM website you can download the full rockshox spare parts catalog. IIRC its in the service section.

If a part is still available, the part number and description will be listed there.

If you want to keep your fork as a 170mm fixed travel model, this site has the soft yellow springs in stock: here.

I bet there are companies out there that would have a solution as well, like Vorsprung or Push.

tis an idea but I'd also need new internals on left side for that.

To my understanding you wouldn't need new internals, you would just have to never use the U-Turn again.

I’ve reached out to Vorsprung. If they have an option I’ll let you know.

Vorsprung sells the smash pot but it’s only for the newer lyriks I think 2016 and up

Anyone know if there's any manual info on this version of the Canyon Iridium dropper? This came off a 2021 Canyon Spectral, but it's completely different than the version on Canyon USA's page for the Iridium. Not intuitive to me how to thread the cable..not a straight thread/pull like the OneUps I'm used to, with the cable needing to pull inward toward the seatpost instead of outward?
Canyon Iridium dropper. Version unknown. Off 2021 Canyon Spectral.
