    Queston about front end.

    I have noticed recently that when I am going down a hill or mashing my pedals that I hear a rubing.

    It sounds like my tire hitting the crown (I think that's what it's called) of my fork. I am running a 2.4 tire in the front and have noticed that while there is clearance there isn't much.

    It's tough to tell where it's comming from since I can't duplicate it unless I am riding and I don't really want to look down at it for obvious reasons.

    Any suggestions appreciated.

    Assuming that you have an air fork.....are you running enough pressure?

    Not an air fork. The fork is a POS but it's been fine untill recently.

    If the clearance is real tight it probably is the tire, put a smaller one on and check it out.
