Which fork for Covert? I thought about this when I saw EB's pic of the 40 on the BR.

This franken-mod while I am waiting to get my Lyrik back from service was too funny to pass up...

Sorry about the mud...

A bit OT but.. You're giving me a complex! (I have the opposite situation).. I run a Lyrik (Uturn) on my Highline because I do quite a bit of climbing. I have been thinking about snagging a totem but I'd like to have a travel adjustable fork.

The 2-step is out of the question due to reliability.

Quick question for ya. Is the totem "that" much better than the Lyrik? They do share the same damping system etc.

Somewhere I've got a picture of my BR with a 100mm Skareb on it, when I was bored and rebuilding the forks on both the BR and my XC bike. Let me see if I can find it.

The Totem is lowered to 150mm, so it rides just fine. Will work for a week or two.

Looks good. What's going on with your lyrik? Just normal servicing?

I don't see why that shouldn't work even set at 160mm. Is that the fork off of your old 7 point?
It's getting a full spa treatment from our good friends at BTI... new lowers, new crown/stanchions, you know. Regular yearly maintenance for a fork, nowadays...

The Totem is indeed from my old IH. But I have a secret new project that will require it to be returned to full 180mm glory. :cool:
