Done a bunch of searches and no clear answer.

What is the optimal fork size and offset to convert 2020 Heckler to MX and keep close to the original ergos, stack, etc.

Lyrik 2.1 Ultimates on sale and thinking I may convert to MX.

THANKS in advance

As I recall, your bike came with 27.5+ tires. Assuming that it's the case, you should be able to put a 29er with your current setup.. Unless you're looking for an excuse to buy the Lyrik .

It did come with 27.5+. Well, 2.6 (some debate that plus starts at 2.8+). Another reference says the true 29r in the 27.5 Lyrik Ultimate (46mm offset) may mash if you bottom out.

Interesting! Assuming that the concern is that a 29er could contact the downtube, fully deflating the 27.5 Lyrik will allow it to fully compress thus mimicking a bottom out. The easiest way to find out if a 29er will still have enough clearance is to throw one on while the fork is fully deflated
