The bad news is there still not that totally stickless smooth but I do believe that is down to sram quality control and can be sorted with a simple lowers lube up.

This. /\

I've got a DPA. On steep sustained climbs it's like riding in an air conditioned elevator listening to bossa nova.

Descends fine. I've ridden Solo's extensively. Change out those foam rings on the DPA each time when servicing the lower leg or you'll get stiction.

So fast forward a few months and I'm looking to buy a fork now. I did a full service on my 2011 float 36 RC2 and tweeked it till I got it dialed and it feels damned good. Seems like the perfect time to ditch it for a new one.


Pretty sure I'm just going to do a 2016 Fox 27.5 Float36 RC2 again. Compared it to a Pike and Lyric and It seems to be top, Anyone riding this fork?

Just got the new Lyrik 160mm dual air, RCT3, and will test it in a few weeks. I also have a 2016 Fox Float 36 on my FS bike, so I can compare them. All the reviews on the new Lyrik say they are the best fork Rockshox makes....

Can you provide an update on the Lyrik? I had an old 160 DP Lyrik that I really liked and used the travel adjust ALL THE TIME. I had that fork on an Intense 5.5 and then my FS tandem and it made a huge difference in both cases with keeping the fron from wandering. I just bought a long travel tandem and want a 180mm adjustable travel fork. Fox officially discontinued TALAS but will custum build one if you ask (180/140. The Lyrik is of course the other option 180/150.

My Lyriks are in Germany along with my new Kingdom frame....all in pieces. I have a new set of Ohlins RXF 36s to replace the Lyriks. I may go back to the Lyriks though, as I like the dual air option.
