    Help front shock broke

    You need to use an Allen key to take the blue dial off. Then use a socket or wrench to tighten the cap back down. Then you can replace the blue cap. It may have just come loose, but I suppose could be stripped.

    Are you saying that the entire top cap assembly just popped out of upper leg while you are riding? Was it getting loose or did you notice before you start and kept riding? If it was totally threaded in before the ride and it happened, then your thread maybe totally stripped. If that's the case, then your forks maybe done unfortunately, not much you can do after top cap assembly strips. Not saying that's what happened, but the shop may have stripped it and didn't tell you.

    Either way, better close up picture of the thread may give us a better idea...
