    Good point. I will say the whole "random pedal strike" thing isn't as random these days. Look what put Jerome out last season (mundane pedal strike to OTB). That on a "high" BB Jeykll.

    You'll be fine with the new 36 w/either axle size or the new Lyrik. Nothing wrong with the the fork you are on either. She's way underrated IMO.

    Interesting. I felt the opposite but just by a hair. New 36 is *absolutely* stiffer than the Pike. Lyrik though? That should be pretty close.
