    Butcher with 170mm lyriks, thoughts ?

    Recently got myself a 2nd hand butcher frame which i havent built up as yet and ive been offered a brand new set of 2012 lyrik 170mm RC2DH air forks on the cheap. The butcher is rated upto 160mm forks but im thinking the 170mm will be grand, anyone on here running 170 upfront on theres ?
    Cheers D

    Running 170mm myself with an X-Fusion Vengeance HLR Coil with no issues on my Large Butcher. Swapped out the RP23 for a DHX and it is quite plush all around.

    I'm running the same fork but lowered it to 160mm, its great seems to fit the Butcher really well.
