    Tech fork question

    Set the rebound to full slow and cycle the fork several times. This will purge the damper of air. Once the fork is rebounding really slow, set it back to your desired level and test the lockout again, this should solve your problem.

    Knee Braces?

    I ride moto with the POD K700 (distributed by Fox here in the states) and it's comfy enough that I could ride dh in them. The tracking patella guard offers good protection, and its removable if you wanted to come up with your own custom protection. http://www.podmx.com/

    Five Ten Cyclones

    If they use the same sole as the Minnaar, then yes it is thick, but the cleat is recessed quite deep into the sole. Much farther than Shimano's current DX shoe.

    Fox 40 Help-Blown Bladder?

    The 2011 40 damper is quite a bit different from the 2010. The new F.I.T. damper that Fox introduced for the 32mm class of forks has been applied to the 36 and 40 for 2011. The damper has essentially been inverted, the bladder has been enlarged, and it now sits at the top of the cartridge. As...

    Fox 40 Help-Blown Bladder?

    It's worth a call to see if they will, but unfortunately due to the design of the damper, 6 hard days at N* can do this to a 40. It would be worth your while to see if they'll upgrade you to the 2011 internals, they're significantly stronger. If you do have to send it back to Fox be aware that...

    Fox 40 Help-Blown Bladder?

    Yes you have blown the bladder. You may not have noticed a loss in damper performance because not much oil has leaked out of the damper yet. The cartridge rebuild kit, which has a replacement bladder (along with many other o-rings) should run you about $35~40 and you'll need some 10wt oil to do...

    New trail/AM bike time!

    Noah, I've built many Tracers up here at my new shop, and trust me, you don't want one. Flexier than your 6.6, geo is not good for SB at all, quality of travel is mediocre, has tons of problems if you ever want to put and kind of 2x9/10 set up on it...you get the picture. SB is a very hard...
