    Diamond is air.

    Cane Creek and MRP both recently announced coil versions of their forks. Push has a coil kit for some others.

    Yep. About 10 years ago, the industry said no more coil--just air. Now it's gone full circle. I like my Lyrik, but I gotta tell you the Ribbon coil option is very tempting.

    If you want a fork over 160mm your only option is picking up a 36 and putting the PUSH coil conversion in. If you pick up a 17 170mm cheap and with the conversion you could end up spending close to the same as the other options. I have that kit in a 18 36 and it's amazing.

    IMO, your best option is going with a Fox 36 and drop in the PUSH kit. You can't beat the fact that PUSH's choice of coils do not suffer from coil fatigue. The best part about this combo though is you can drop in a Avy cart. I have that setup and it just blows me away every time I ride it.

    I just bought a '17 Fox 36 on Pinkbike and plan on putting a ACS-3 kit in it. By the time all is said and done it will be about the same as a Ribbon Coil. Cane Creek is a little spendier, and doesn't have any bottom out protection like the Push kit and Ribbon Coil have.
    I wouldn't **** you, you're my favorite turd.

    I'm more than thrilled with the MRP Ribbon Coil on my bike.
