    Bottoming out the frame

    So I noticed something today while cleaning the bike. The frame is bottoming out and has left some quite nasty marks on it:



    Just sent an inqury to Nicolai.

    Anyone else had this happening? What could cause it?
    The shock should be proper lenght and stroke.

    Is it just this one side or both that are striking...?

    Is it hitting that bolt?

    In the big pic on Nicolai's website, that bolt does not protrude at all.

    Okay,

    I got an fast answer from Falco at Nicolai and they will send me a new lever in black, free of charge. So im guessing the problem was with the grey 2006 -year lever.

    Really good service from Nicolai! Props to them!
