Bigger is better :thumbsup:dulyebr said:I just installed a Lyrik SoloAir set to 140mm of travel using spacers. At 140, the Lyrik is just 7mm longer than the Pike it replaced. I hate adjusting travel, so for me it's the perfect set-up. The crazy thing is the Lyrik SoloAir is only 140g heavier than the Pike Air U-turn.
Long story, but I wanted a big DH/FR bike for shuttling/Whizzler. I thought of selling my Supermoto, but you can't give those bikes away so, I sold the XCL and bought a Transition Blindside (although if I would have waited a few months I could've bought one of the highlines on sale :madman: ).tscheezy said:I must have slept through this part, but Geo- why'd you sell the xcl?
geolover said:It really is a nice setup and I liked it. I would highly recommend it. I rode around in 130mm mode alot for general trail riding and it railed singletrack (same a2c as the pike when in 130 mode). When things got steep or techy I'd switch to 160. Perfect really.
The stiffness of the fork matches the stiffness of the frame. Plus, chicks dig big tubes. :thumbsup:
