    Oil leak?

    Got this Diamondback Axis XE and after a couple hundred miles I noticed oil leaking out of the top of the forks?

    I'll take Forks for $300 Alex.

    What is a leaking fork?

    Is there a spring in there, so no worries, or is it a oil fork on the front?

    Wooo Hoooo! I guess some oil leaking out is no big deal. Just clean the forks and the old seals. Man this bike is perfect for the canals.

    OK, that was silly. I guess Ya have to start somewheres. So now I know how to disassemble and reassemble a Suntour XCT forks. I'll probably upgrade the springs and put in lock outs soon. Now that I know how to set the tension, however, this shock isn't so bad for farm road riding.
