Hi guys and gals,
I just picked up a distressed Lefty SL that I plan on having rebuilt. The lockout doesn't work in a way that I've never seen before.
If I compress the fork suddendly (high speed compression), it locks out close to immediately - say 5mm of travel, with a bit of a clunk.
If I compress relatively slowly (not painfully slowly, but not super-fast), it doesn't resist at all. Feels like an unlocked fork.
Normally, when I see failed lockouts, I've never seen lockout working under high-speed compression only. Also, usually there was signifcant compression damping when in the "locked out" position, even if lockout wasn't fully working.
