I managed to get some brand new 2010 lyriks at the start of 2012 for £465 from winstanleys. They're still performing well now, I've just had to do a couple of lower leg services. They do get an absolute hammering off me though! Can't complain too much about having to do a bit of maintenance.


I've heard that they're easy to work on yourself. My 36's are a pain, requiring new crush washers, they have silly bladders in the damping leg that need filling and bleeding. They also have short service intervals.

Domains are great, bulletproof forks but I do think that deserves a set of Lyriks!

So I sold the above bike and used the proceeds to buy this lovely fork :D
Totally chuffed. Am down in Milton Keynes for a few days this week and brought it with me so the 1st ride is go an be a dick-about in the woods at Woburn Sands. Last time I was here I really enjoyed riding those woods so hope it's the same again.
I've also got a new chain device to fit.
They're 160's.
Boom

Wow....you've treated that to some amazing forks! I've heard great things about the Bos forks, which should be even better now that Surf Sales are importing and servicing them.

They look great on the Nomad too.

You should pop to Chicksands too if you're that way; I've not been for ages but always had a good day down there.

So the Deville is unbelievably good. It may not feel as plush as a new Pike when you just compress it off the bike, but Jesus, when u get going it performs like nothing else I've ridden. Also the adjustability it has is teaching me lots about suspension!

That looks brilliant.
Just one more thing... get yourself a narrow/wide chainring and ditch all the guide gubbins. Been running one for a couple of months with a clutch mech over some hairy stuff and not a single dropped chain.
