    Rockshox Ario 2.1 on my Felt Compulsion

    Brand new bike, 2010 Felt Compulsion with the the Ario 2.1 rear shock. After the first ride the o-ring that shows length of travel on the piston seamed to be a bit moist with oil. It was dry prior to the ride.

    This is my first Air Shock. is this normal? Seams to hold pressure and dampening/rebound adjustment just fine.

    Thanks for your input!

    Totally normal.

    What you're seeing is the shock's lubrication. New shocks will break in over the first few rides and the lube will stop seeping after a while.

    Just keep an eye on it and wipe off the excess lube before you ride.

    Ario is a sweet shock by the way...
    It's not where it's made but how it's made.
