Foxzocchi Z36 Coil GRIP2 VVC - March 3, 2021, 4:46 p.m.

I have a newly built Z1 coil with Grip2 damper and it is pretty much the best fork I’ve ever ridden. I’ve had many coil and air forks and nothing compares, though the 38 is quite good.

It went from you chasing me to me chasing you so I'd say it worked out just fine for you.

That V10 you had was a major upgrade from the Brodie hard tail that left you in a crumpled mess on the Hemlock BC Cup course and the Cheeta Proline that didn't hold together for you (it was fine when I sold it to you).

If You Can't Ride From Home, Ride From Somewhere - Oct. 24, 2018, 10:29 a.m.

I love riding from home, 15 min straight up to the parking lot but climbing up though Princess is such a nice start to the day. Can't wait for the new bridge to be finished to connect up to Seymour easier as well.

More coil bikes are needed and this looks to be awesome. Just need to convert the fork to coil and good to go.

The Quad, you are correct. Not to be mistaken for a set of "gros tetons" though.

Some good thoughts for sure, and we are definitely on the same page. I am very much in agreement of having an air or coil option on any longer travel bike, both front and rear. I would much rather have the coil Fox X2 than the air coming on my new new bike but there is no option. 

I'd love to do a comparison of a stock Lyrik, Luftkappe setup and my coil. I understand the Luftkappe is quite good as you say.

I get what you are saying and could be great marketing for SRAM to have the Totem back, I'd buy one. As it sits the fork doesn't need anything else so air preload wouldn't be necessary and it is an RC which is fine for the damping functions. I am very impressed with how well the Franken-Lyrik performs and me being over 200lbs it does get a pretty good workout.

Or just offer a coil Lyrik and give the people a no nonsense awesome fork that needs no air, pucks, volume reducers, or whatever you want to call the chunks of plastic . In the end I think parts to convert were around $150. I could put a BOM together to lay out the parts needed. Weight difference was about 250g.

The fork has been amazing, zero issues and better than any other fork I have ridden except the custom coil Marzocchi 350 I had. It has been in service for over a year now and the only thing done was an oil change. More than likely I will get another fork done this year, though I am now thinking of converting a 36 to coil.
