    New question here. 2011 Trance X2 - Stanchion Rub

    Hi all,

    doing a bit of a survey on the number of 2011 Trance X2's that have had to have the fork stanchions replaced due to rub.

    I know of 3 bikes locally that all needed replacement or are well on their way. The riders and styles are all different and the maintenance schedules were loosely followed (if I had to guess on the others).

    I have replaced the stanchions and am going to be hyper vigilant going forward but wanted to know if there were others out there with the same issues.

    Seals must have been dry, i'm guessing. I flip my bike upside down once in awhile for a few minutes before a ride, to lube up the upper foam wipers.

    I never heard of this, and I am running a 11' Trance X1. However I do keep my lower bath oil changed frequently, so I haven't had this issue.
