    2013 Scalpel Fork problem?

    I have a 2013 Scalpel 3 alloy, and my front fork is supposed to have 100mm front travel, and tonight I realized it only has 75...
    I let all of the air out of the fork and could not compress it beyond 75mm.

    Any clue what is going on? Is this the infamous needle bearing issue? I thought the new forks were supposed to be updated to not require a reset?

    OK so I did do some searching and tried the "let the air out of the fork and ride it around a little bit trick", then fill it back up. Tried itand can still only get about 80-83mm travel. An improvement, but still no-where near where it should be in my opinion......
