Got a small XCL on it's way what forks are you tending to run or what is best suited to the bike?

Lyrik or Pike? any views.

I have a Lyric Coil U-Turn on mine, and love it! It might be a little overkill, but it tracks great. I think that the Pike would be better suited because of the weight. Get the U-Turn Coil, because air forks don't ride nearly as well as coil's do.

I had a Pike and wanted something lighter so switched to a Revalation. I liked the low weight, but after the Pike it felt a bit noodelish... So now I have a DT Swiss EXC150 with a 20mm axle. Lighter then the Revelation but stiffer then the Pike.

Went for the Lyrik's now got to wait for the frame, heart stopped when I saw the gen 2 post but it's a backward compatible upgrade and right now I will have no need to change the angles but nice to know I could.

Pics when built and the frame arrives.
