I think the Pike 650 fork is as close as you can get to the 36. The stock Pike damper is a lot like the Fox FIT damper. Basically a modular, bladder design. More moto tech comes over. It should perform better than Lyrik although Lyrik rides really, really well if a bit rampy at the very end of the stroke. If the Pike is just as stiff, it will be a huge win for riders like me, and it sounds like you too.
