    10-4. That's probably the only shop in ABQ I haven't went in yet. I'll have to check them out. Thanks

    I blew through the lockout a while back and now the lockout doesn't work at all... It's a '12 Velvet. I took it apart and looked at the internals, but didn't see anything bent or out of place. I'm not real familiar with MTB forks. I used to play around with the valving on my dirtbikes when I used to race, so I'm not completely suspension dumb. Just not familiar with lockouts and how they work...

    Hmmm. We may need to tag team this thing. I'm kinda curious how the lockout works in conjunction with the damper. Shoot me a PM if you're up for it.

    In most forks the oil cycles through the damper side unimpeded. The exception to this is closed systems like Fox's FIT or Rock Shox's Charger damper, where the oil cycles within a flexible bladder. In either case (open or closed) a lockout works by disallowing oil to cycle within the confines of the system. Essentially, when the lockout is closed (locked) a port is closed, which no longer allows oil to cycle. I have not personally disassembled a Velvet, but we (and by we, I mean fellow Fat Tire Cycles techs) have rebuilt a couple in the past. My guess is that something stripped or failed in some way, allowing the port to open, and probably compromising any real damping control. Long story short, in may require a new lockout assembly.
