That looks sick and that blue looks so close to what I had ordered. Have you managed to get some miles on it yet?

thanks, yeah I think they're the same. would've loved teal, but didn't want to pay extra.

I just got back from a quick ride at my local rooty xc area. ive been riding my hardtail all season so anything with squish is comfy, ha. climbing is good if noticeably heavy, steering is great, headtube slackness is just right for me. wheelbase is nice and long, I had to go all the way forward to reuse the chain I have, but I'm gonna go all the way back when I get a new chain. the lyrik is also a 2020 so I might get a 2021 180mm hairspring to fix the suck down issue, getting a little more travel.

tomorrow I'll take it to the harder stuff and see how it goes. overall I'm happy so far, and the wait was worth it.

Congratulations on the new ride! That is a really sweet looking build.
The blue/green always tugs at my old Kawasaki KX500 heart strings. Hope you enjoy it and looking forward to some more ride reports.
Sadly mine has been sitting again for several weeks waiting for my ribs to heal. But I am going to be pushing my luck on it shortly.

Hi, just thought I'd post here that I'm selling my Ferrum LV145 frame (with DVO T3 Topaz). Also OneUp dropper and DVO Diamond fork if desired..

I do truly enjoy this bike very much, but I knew going into it that it was going to be on the large side for me..so despite it being an absolute rocket at the bike park, it's just not cutting it for me as an all mountain bike, and I've decided to see what else is out there..

Has anyone caught the look of the LVN160 with a new design on the Ferrum site? Looks pretty sweet.

Just looked it up. I love the looks of that and would love to get on one and see what it feels like compared to the original design. Might just have to update here in the next year or two.

looks like the leverage ratio will be much more progressive. i have the air pressure waaaaay up to avoid bottom outs. wish it wasn't so digressive. i may consider getting this frame instead once i am employed again.
