    6-Pack/RFX Geometry with Lyrik

    Larry & I did the measurement today.
    Medium Pack with Lyrik 2-step at full extension (160mm) and Big Betty tires

    HA: 68
    SA: 71
    BB: 14.5

    4th ride on this fork and the seals are definitely breaking in. It's significantly better than ride one and is ridiculously good in all aspects.

    Thanks for the info Squeak. Did you happen to measure the actual Axle to Crown length of your Lyrik? If so, please post.

    Oh yeah, I remember thanks for posting it.

    I heard you put a lyric on one of your new Ventana bike. How do you like it so far?

    Not a new Ventana actually, this is the one I've had for a couple years. I have a couple hours of ride time on the fork. Not even broken in yet and it's already incredible Very stiff and very tuneable. Couldn't resist trying it out for a few rides, even though it's not staying on this bike. It will go on the Knolly when that arrives.

    Holy goodness Larry! Your Ventana is showing more post than a John Holmes movie! I'm surprised you aren't using a Gravity Dropper.

    Great ride. Lots of climbing & descending and had ample opportunity to really put the forks to the test.

    Woo hoo! The Lyrik 2-step price is coming down! About $968 including delivery to the US. Oh, wait. Six weeks out of stock. If it were $900 delivered I'd do it. Dang, what am I saying??? That's $540 more than my wife's entire city cruiser.

    I did show her a pic of the lyrik last night, and she sounded so supportive of my 'need' to have one. She must be cheating on me!
