    Pipedream moxie build

    I'm kinda stumped on what fork to get for this frame??? Going to build a Long Teal frame up. (xt drive / next sl cranks / Wheels (lb carbon / i9 27.5's & mk3 29er)

    I've narrowed it down to a few that look ideal

    160mm lyric (solid/ good deal/ lufkappe option / maybe more?)
    MRP ribbon coil! (plush solid / ramp control)
    Helm coil (solid / lots of options for setup)
    and DVO Diamond. (travel adjust / quality / sleeper/different)
    Fox is too $$$ but i'm not opposed to a performance elite grip fork 2nd hand.

    42-46mm offset

    It really comes down to what is the best deal. willing to buy used like new also.

    I think 555-575 a-c is ideal.
    going to try a 27.5 x 2.6 setup as well as a 29er wheelset.

    Pretty stoked on what i have read so far, and the only concerns are with painful ankles after riding. It was a factor on the 120mm following we had previously.

    cheers

    27.5 x 2.6 will result in a very low BB. I love the new Lyrik RC2 42mm offset on mine. I would not hesitate to get a Ribbon either. Does DVO have reduced offset yet?

    I got some bad ideas in my head.
