    Lyrik 170mm RC2 DH Black 1 1/8 solo air

    Does anybody know why the above fork is impossible to find? I can find black in tapered or ful 1.5. All I can find in 1 1/8 is White. Does Rock Shox not make that model in Black? Only white???

    I am at my wits end.

    Does anyone know what colors are coming in what models for 2012? I can't live without black or diffusion black (i.e. no white) and am looking into a RC2 DH Coil preferable but possibly solo air. Any info would be appreciated.

    RC2L U-Turn Coil - 1 1/8 and Tapered : BLACK
    RC2DH Air - 1 1/8 and Taper : BLACK
    RC2DH Air - 1.5: DIFFUSION BLACK
    RC2DH Coil - Taper : BLACK
    RC2DH Coil - 1 1/8 or 1.5: WHITE

    I think that should be right...will your frame take a taper steerer (it has to be either taper or 1.5 head tube)?

    Otherwise, I'd buy Air and switch internals.

    Ya i'll probably go with the air for that sake, since I wasn't predisposed one way or the other. It's a 1 1/8 headtube on a 08 Giant Reign X.

    Although it doesn't sound quite right, because the OP was saying he could not find that fork in Black.

    That is coming from the BTI catalog of 2012 forks from what I can tell. My information is only as good as theirs.

    A guy I know gets stuff through BTI. He may have made a mistake but all he said he could find in Black, for the solo air, was the Tapered steerer tube. I am getting a white Knolly and do not want a white fork. Sux....I need a 1 1/8 due to a angle set I have for 1 1/8.

    I cannot even find used ones on Pink bike or Ebay!!!!

    In Rockshox's website it says it does exist, but I haven't found it in any shop whatsoever, either online or actual.
    If anyone has found one, one please, please, post the resource.

    I think this is an error on the Rockshox website, cause the Coil U-turn comes only in R2CL format, please correct me if wrong.
