    New question here. Anyone running RS Lyrik RC2DH on a 6.6?

    Looking to change my Van 36's for something a bit lighter with a tad more travel so was wondering if anyone is running RS Lyrik's on their 6.6
    I'm looking at the 170mm RC2DH air's...
    Any input would be great.
    Cheers
    Steve

    I'm using a coil version in 170.
    Since I run a Hope Stepdown headset, I need to install a new lower cup, recessed to lose about 10mm, lowering the front end a bit.
    I really enjoy the Lyric, although you need to look for the oil level in the lowers. Used to Marzocchi with open oil, this needs a bit more care.
    Other than that, Coil version comes with 3 coils, and for my 80kg, shim stack is ok and with the compression and rebound knobs you can reach a real nice spot.
    A friend's Lyric have a problem with maxle, that undoes after several rides - he checked and re-checked everything but it continues. He has the air simple R unit, and I really like how it rides also!

    Sram permits transform the fork to whichever model, by "simply" swapping parts.
    Soloair have the possibility to change travel using different spacers.


    I would like to note, that I'm using offset bushings and using coil behind - having a lighter bike for epic rides, it seems natural to make this one more "hardcore".
