Strengths:    Stiffer than my previous Lyrik (2007)
Pops when you want it to pop.
Sticks when you want it to stick.
Stupid simple for working on it at home.
Tunable shim stacks.
No lockout. Lockouts are for forks with crap damping to begin with.
Incredible bottom out resistance while still using most of the trail effectively.
Perfect length.

Feels perfectly matched to the damping characteristics of my rear Cane Creek Double Barrel shock (2010 version).

Came with springs.

Weaknesses:    Absolutely none! I am one very critical person and cannot find any fault in this fork AT ALL.

Bottom Line:   
Big hits use all but the last 1-2mm.
Never uses too much or too little travel.
Balances out my bike perfectly in terms of AtoC length.
Mega times way better than my 2009 66 rc3 that it replaced. I liked it, but it just feels like a dog compared to the playful and tossable feeling of the 2010 Lyrik DH.

If you buy a 2010 Lyrik, get the DH damper version. Once set up right it does not need a lockout switch as the damper is top of the line and can do everything with one setting.

Similar Products Used:   Lyrik 2007. Garbage in comparison. Not as stiff in the bushings and damper was not as refined.
Fox forks fit the same category, but not a chance in hell a Fox will ever be as simple and serviceable as the Rockshox forks.
Just as reliable as a Marzocchi, but better performance.

Bike Setup:   2008 Reign X1 with CCDB in the rear.
