 Very very good fork, never had any major issues with mine and ive had them since they first appeared in 2007. Even bushings are still good. much like all RS forks very easily serviceable. early versions are a bit of a pain as they used some modded internals (effectively running the rebound unit from the 32mm forks) all 2009+ internals still fit old models and i do recommend at least replacing the solo air spring as it removed the bizzare top out clunk that develops after some time of use. my only gripe is the price, when i got my first pair i got them at a respectable £500 now there about £750 if you look in the right places, its a bit too much although it is a damn good fork.

 2012 version came installed on my Trek Slash. Only a few rides so far and it feels great. While I was waiting for my Slash to be built, I was thinking about changing the Lyric out for a Fox Talas but after reading reviews and riding it, I'm definitely glad I didn't. Eats up the rock gardens and downhill and feels great climbing as well.

 Bought this fork about 9 months ago.

It has held up to resort riding, trail riding, dirtjumping, and everything I have thrown at it so far.

Pros: Very adjustable, Simple, Mission Control Works Really well

Cons: Lost the Rebound adjuster on the bottom from riding.

 Stiff, strong and plush. Love the 1.5" head-tube interface, and the over-sized bushings. This is my third RS product, and the quality is great. I am a HUGE fan of the Maxle Axle configuration, and will recommend it to anyone who will listen. Post mount brakes = easy setup IMHO, and overall a great fork for AM/FR.

 The best long travel air fork money can buy. If you are too heavy or agressive for weak fox rebound springs then these are for you! Mission Control rules. Get 'em, TFTuned!

Damping Mission Control
Damping - The process of absorbing the energy of impacts transmitted through the forks or rear shock during the compression stroke, and absorbing the energy of the spring during the rebound stroke.
DropOut Options Maxle
Compression high speed compression, low speed compression, Floodgate switch and internal Floodgate
Compression - This is the damping circuit that absorbs the compression energy force on the damper. Compression damping is used to adjust how quickly a fork or rear shock compresses when hitting a bump, and is adjustable on some products. When compression damping is too soft, this condition allows most of the available travel to be used without attaining control of the wheel. When it's adjusted too firmly, the wheel will jump or "dance" about when hitting small bumps, again failing to gain control of the wheel.
