    Need your help

    Hi, I have a 2007 GT Chucker 3.0

    I was wondering if you could help me out on this one.

    My front fork is feeling a little weak (moving too much)
    I've tried adjusting the preload but it doesn't seem to do a whole lot. It has a RST Launch T7 on the front.
    It also sounds like there is air coming out of the fork whenever it is compressed... ?
    Should it make this noise?.. and does anyone know how I should set up the preload? Or see if anything is wrong with the fork? I've barely ridden it.

    Thanks for any help.

    You should be able to replace the springs to a stiffer set. The air noise is normal. Your best bet is to get a better quality fork.

    How old is your bike & did you buy it new.

    Take it back to the LBS & let them know what's going on, if you can bring your friend so they can feel as well as hear, show & tell is the best method. If there is a problem it should be covered by the manufactures warranty.
