Ultra lame dude, I will keep an eye for them.

Just curious, what was the construction of the locker? Were they individually locked as well?

Tim Coleman Reviews a 2011 Rock Shox Lyrik RC2 DH

I'm on a 2010 Lyrik Solo, and like the other comments, I'm having trouble getting it set up well for all conditions. I'm running about 10-15psi above recommended for my weight, feels good on mellow trails but on steep stuff it wallows in the travel, which is not good as this steepens the head angle and makes me feel like I'm going to go over the bars.

I had all the oil replaced at Different Bikes, feels a bit smoother and doesn't top-out as bad, but I do still notice a mysterious clunking midway through the travel.

Overall I think this fork is an alright spec considering it came stock on my new bike, but had I paid $1400 for it I would be extremely dissapointed. Thinking of switching to a coil.

Advice on BC riding for another damn Aussie

Will you have a vehicle? I'd recommend Squamish as a base as there is a great trail network in town and you're about halfway between Whistler and North Van (45 mins to each).

Squamish has a good mix of trails that would be suitable for both you and your wife. My GF is just getting into riding, and while most of the stuff on the shore is too technical for her, she really enjoys riding at Squamish.

TIRED OF I.T. - Cycling across the globe

Pretty cool adventure so far. His upcoming route is pretty ambitious, guessing it'll take at least 2-3 yrs to make it around the world?

2005 Chromag Fubars OS

Aluminum bars = replace, as they could snap without warning.

Steel bars = will bend before they'll snap.

I run aluminum bars on my duallie, replace them every 2-3 seasons. My hardtail has steel bars (.243), still running they same ones from 2005 and they have seen a TON of abuse.

Have you seen this on a mountain?

There's one at the top of Ledgeview in Abbotsford which I believe is farther sw of the Sumas one shown.
