Mines got a 150 pike on it, picked it up at the weekend. Can't speak for performance yet as not ridden it properly yet.
Offset on the lyrik 51mm
Offset on the pike 42mm

@Arierep - Nice! I bet that colour is super bright in the Portuguese sunshine Cool

@thorjensen - yes the Debonair spring made a noticeable difference to my Yari, much softer on the small bumps. You can see that even with just the weight of the bike on it, the fork is sagged a few mm.

Yup, i've noticed the much softer feel in the start of the travel, and I get the same few mm sag.
Going from 130mm to 140mm and with the new 2019 DebonAir piston I had to increase my psi.
I went from 98psi and 4 tokens to 115psi and 4 tokens to gain 25% sag.

Still 4 tokens?dies 8t still lack so much mid support?
Than I would definitely recommend getting the awk for your pike. Best upgrade ever. No tokens not to much damping to needed to compensate. Almost like coil.

using 1 token in my 140 Yari - plenty of mid stroke support but a different fork of course

Well I ad/remove tokens from the amount of travel I use when running 25% sag. My aim is around 80-90% travel use, when standing in pedals and pumping/pressing MAX down on my bars.

The Pike I’m running is 2019, 150mm with a 51mm offset. Running 2 tokens.
Feels good!

At what psi?

I get too much ramp with the 4 tokens now and went back to 2 tokens and about 135psi (110kg rider rdy)

Again, buy an AWK it is almost like steel and o need for tokens. But still a bit of ramp up at the end like air. And you can adjust it anytime with a Shockpump. No need for opening the fork and silly tokens.

That’s what I thought bansai but the 150 Pike is an option along with the Lyrik, Yari and Ribbon.

Nice pics of an AM9 with Ribbon fork on their Facebook page.

What downtube protector do you guys run? I'm looking for something tough,not just a thin wrap

I'm using this stuff which seems good and has stayed on so far (nearly 12 months).

Guys, just received my AM9. Can someone answer a question for me? My frame has an 'L' sticker on the BB shell, and the serial number ends with an 'L'. Is this indicative of the size? However I measure the frame, it seems consistent with the large size (seat tube, ETT, wheelbase). Unfortunately I ordered an M-L. Currently hoping that I'm the mistaken one...
