What made you pick the Lyric over the Pike? Just interested in knowing the rationale behind the fork choice.

I had alrdy used a pike on my previous 2015 Enduro.
For this 2016 bike, had compared the lyrik was not far off in terms of the weight scale from pike (144g) and the 0.5degree slacker due to 10mm difference in travel does not effect me much on the climbs. Felt similar as on 160 pike.
The ride benefits I looked at was the better stiffness of the Lyrik especially the axle area for the descends.

How did the stock slaughter tire handle that kind of terrain, assuming you rode it before swapping to a Butcher? :D

For this bike I did not use slaughter as I had it set up separately, not full stock bike.
However, on my previous Enduro 2015, I had the slaughter tyres went through these rocks. It was during a dry season trail conditions, so slaughter was OK.
But currently now these rocks section are very slippery during this wet monsoon season, so I preferred to have them butcher for the back. And it's Grid Butcher.

Can't really give my review yet cos had only rode it once so far.
Initial feel it feels different from my previous Enduro set up of using Debonair. Will update when I get at least a couple more rides
