Hi guys, any bc edition 120mm fork travel riders out there?
I ride an element bc edition mostly in the 120 mm travel position. I rode it all last year and had to have a fork swap mid season. The seals would melt on the stanchions due to high friction coefficient I believe and it would hinder fork response, the crown also creaked. So fox sent me a new tallas with the 2014 ctd upgrade. On that last fork the ctd failed 1.5 months after receiving it and the rear ctd as well. So I sent it back in for service at fox and had them rebuilt and I had both rear shock and fork kashima coated.
But I still find that the fork sits low in its travel as did the previous forks with the recommended air pressure. I am 6'2'' weight 195-200 geared up ride an XL frame and mostly ride standing position so weight slightly more forward. I don't seem to get full compression travel even with the recommended air pressure. Seated sag seems ok but standing position, I find it sits low in its travel. SO I'm tempted to ad air pressure like maybe 110 pds but then It will sit higher when standing pedalling but I will get even less compression travel. Any suggestions ?
