Strengths:    Solid and stiff. Very progressive dampening with huge range on adjusters. No need for two step Lyric if bike built for 6 inches. This ones cheaper and lighter. No leaks and very low pressures in air chamber.

Weaknesses:    none, it even has post mount brakes now.

Bottom Line:   
Perfect for a 6 inch heavy duty trail bike. Floodgate only good for road climbs, but good if you forget as it will blow through. Set up very fast (give it a few runs then pump the pressure up 15 odd psi) adjustments have huge range like marz forks. very stiff, light enough to still flick around, heaps of mud clearance, and maxle axle so easy and now you can put the lever in any position

Strengths:    Strong,stiff,light for what it is. Maxle 360 is cool

Weaknesses:    none yet

Bottom Line:   
This fork is great, tracks well, stiff,strong, not to heavy. After I took the time to set it up I loved it. If you are going up something steep I found it climbs better to keep the fork active. When the MotionControl is on the fork wants to deflect up off of rocks. The dual air would not have this problem. Other than that it is great, money well spent as far as I am concerned.

Lyrik 2-step to Solo air is a no go??

I read in another forum post that you cant get a reliable seal with a solo air spring if you are coming from a 2 step air. I was under the impression that the 2 step had a sleeve (i dont mean the spring sleeve for coil shocks) that was put in place due to a size difference with the 2 step assembly. ... Read More »

'10 Lyrik Solo Air 170mm MissionControl DH - lower travel?

I have this model and have lost any manual or accessories that came with it. Was this one lowerable with an OEM chip to 160? There are/were so many different iterations of the Lyrik, I'm kinda confused. If I don't have the chip, is there some other thing I can toss in there?Read More »

Lyrik DPA convert to 150-120mm or Solo Air 150mm.

Hi team Would love to drop my Lyrik DPA to 150-120mm, but i'm pretty sure that it can't be done. Does anyone out there know if it can be done? Alternatively, i'd be very happy with a single 150mm setting as in just solo air, not DPA. There now appears to be 150mm base plate/scraper kits, bu ... Read More »
