I am 7 rides into this bike and the forks suck! Every single day has been adjusting ,adjusting , adjusting.
I still have my 10' so pulling those forks is an option.
I dont know what they did or how this fork gets great reviews but mine are a mess.
A section of 3" bracking bumps at speed seem to send these forks into hydrolic lock.
I am super heavy and have gone to way stiffer springs....54kg (same as in the 10').
At 275lb. with stock valving , I should be blowing right through the stroke or atleast should not be noticing any overly hash portions of the stroke.
I've got a zip tie to confirm that I am using all of the stroke.
With the heavier springs ,after one ride I dropped the oil from 335 to 300cc's. That still sucked.
I then went to 275cc's (below the min limit but remember , I have .54's in there.
The fork is still harsh on braking bumps unless I back the compression way way out to where the front end does not feel stable.
I am going to play with the bike a little more but I seem headed for a re-valve,
I am just confirming... at my weight , these forks should not feel stiff at all. They jacked something up.
If I am feeling like the forks are harsh , no one in the 200lb range should feel guilty about thinking the forks are harsh, There is something wrong in there.
