    I was also thinking the same. My Domain has 555mm a2c and 170mm travel and the new Fox 36 with 180mm travel has 555 a2c so if I didn't want to change the geometry and keel the same a2c I would have to unbalance the bike.

    Amyway I finally decided to buy the Lyrik RC2DH that has the same a2c and travel with my Domain and is almost half the price of the Fox 36.

    Hoping the new air spring will be a drop replacement for the older 160 forks, i have a 2012 and no desire to buy another new fork at this point. Though I wouldn't mind having the newer air spring design if it is as good as initial reports.

    55CR at 170 could also have been an option. Run mine at 150 and i prefer to ride it over my 2013 F160 rc2, It's a very good fork for the price.

    Me. 20-25 miles so far, 2 rides in 3 days since I installed it. Feels great and still need to tune it a bit.

    And yes, worth the wait.

    2009/10 Rockshox Lyrik Solo Air. I had it serviced not too long ago, and it didn't feel any better than before. I always noticed that I had to ride with way too much pressure in order for it not to dive under braking, which made it very harsh.

    The 36 feels very supportive in the same situations and it has more features I can use to tune it how I want. I haven't dialed in the correct pressure yet, and will probably add a volume spacer then run a little more sag and see how it feels.

    The way the 36 fork rides reminded me right away of my Float 40, which was great and just how I wanted it to feel.

    Just got my 36, cannot wait to get it on my Nomad.

    Looks very good, it will be interesting to crack it open and see if Fox have started building forks better and not just assembled with pot luck as to if it has lube in the lowers or not!

    This is my first Fox fork, so just verifying. These do not come with a pump like RS forks do, correct?
    If jackasses could fly this place would be an airport.

    Stoked to try a 180mm -> 150mm 2015 Talas on my Nomad2.

    20mm more travel for the bike park, but only 11mm more axle to crown over my Lyrik. Probably a decent amount of weightloss as well. Waiting to see what people think of the new damper...

    Tempted to go with a closeout 2014 Talas, but the weight loss and lower axle to crown really has me leaning towards the 2015. The convertible axle system would be a bonus too (can share wheelsets with my trailbike's Pike - wish they had made a 20mm though).

    Once you do please compare it vs the Lyrik.

    So if Pike made a 20mm, how many riders would not even look at the Fox?
    Is the 2015 36 as easy to service as the Pike?
    We need more 36 reviews....or is it want?

    I've been in the market for a new fork for a while. If the Pike had come in 20mm, I would've bought it by now without hesitation. I'm not saying the 15mm axle alone prevents me from buying a particular fork, but it is definitely one of the biggest factors for me. The service interval of Fox products doesn't appeal to me, however the 36mm stanchions and 20mm axle design have made me delay buying any of the forks currently on the market. I would like to see real world feedback on the DVO Diamond before I make a decision also. So far, the 2015 Fox Float looks the best on paper, and hopefully it rides well because I'm strongly considering it still. Oh yeah, the MRP Stage looks good too and I hope to see more real world feedback on that too.

    Looks sweet, how does it feel. Did you dial it in yet?

    Big question, have a MY 11-14 vanilla that I want to use (limit travel).. did the stanchion spacing change, would the new lowers bolt on? ?

    Thanks for the comments.

    Picked it up from competitivecyclist.com, they had preordered some and I made sure I got it first thing. I got the blue retro decal kit from them at the same time and it is way better of a look than the stock orange decals.

    I haven't dialed it in, I know I need to, but it feels really, really good without much adjusting. All I have done is air pressure setup before each ride, and only a little bit of knob turning 2-5 clicks back and forth to see what difference it makes. Couldn't really tell much because each ride has been different terrain. But still feels great and I am starting to notice a slight decrease in front end weight from my lyrik.


    I don't think that the new lower can just bolt on to the old uppers, since they changed a lot on this fork.

    I just whipped the lowers off mine to check pool volumes as Fox is notoriously bad in this area. My forks seemingly had the correct oil volumes in them, foam rings soaked in 20wt gold as well. The wiper seals were bone dry though so I've given them a lick of shock honey and the fork feels even plusher. Cannot believe on a $1k fork you need to do this though but I guess thats mass manufacturing for you.

    2015 Fox 36

    Got mine today! Waiting on a crown race so I install it on my 575. Already swapped the decals for white/grey retro ones.
