Rockshox Lyrik Ultimate Review

Overview

I bought this RockShox Lyrik Ultimate from World Wide Cyclery to put on my dream build Yeti SB150 29er, and also to complement my Push Eleven Six rear shock on small bump compliance. I will have to say that I made the right decision with this fork It handles all the small bumps so well and gives the bike a bottomless feeling on the big hits. This forks action is very smooth throughout the whole travel, but then holds up well through the mid-stroke and again gives you great bottom-out resistance.

Why RockShox Over Fox?

I was going to go with the Fox 36 that comes with on the Yeti SB150 but, after reading many reviews, and then watching some on YouTube as well I chose the RockShox Lyrik Ultimate, and I have to say I have made the right decision. The first time I rode my bike with this fork on it I was completely amazed. I was having so much fun I did not want the day to end. I rode until it was dark out, and had ridden over 25 miles. By the time I got back to my truck, I was completely freezing but, it was so worth it. I cannot wait for the weather to warm up here in Colorado so I can ride every day. And I also cannot wait to get to the bike parks here, as they are closed due to winter, and too much snow on the ground, so I can really see how this fork will handle the big huge hits from the bigger jumps and the crazy downhill tracks we have here in Colorado.

Performance

I had to take this bike all the way to Moab Utah just to ride it on some of the gnarly terrain there as well. I stopped in Grand Junction to ride a few trails there on my way, as I know of a few big hits there, and again I was completely amazed at the action from this fork. It handled the slick rock of Moab perfectly and stays glued to the ground, and gives you amazing traction.

Final Thoughts

If you buy this fork you will be completely satisfied, I assure you, you will love it. And the customer service from World Wide Cyclery is second to none! I enjoy watching their videos on YouTube, and all the great advice they give as well. I will continue to watch their videos, and buy my parts from them as well! Their knowledge of bikes is outstanding, and you can call them anytime with any questions you may have. So a BIG THUMBS Up to World Wide Cyclery! Thanks again guys, and you'll be hearing from me soon!!
