    Please help me understand...

    Please help me understand why my blur xc suddenly drop its frame height and I noticed my pedals are touching the ground when I sat on it. I checked all vpp are still connected and added pressure into the shocks, still the same.
    Thank you for your words of wisdom.

    Is your shock locked-down? Check the amount of exposed shaft compared to what it is supposed to be.

    Thank you for your reply and my answer to your question is my shock is not locked down because when I push my seat down the shock moves up and down though it's very slow. The exposed shaft appears to be the same amount, should I changed it?

    Sounds like a blown shock?

    the wheels fell off?
    you got fat?
    the cranks stretched?
    it's straddling a log?
    ???

    Until you post a picture, or tell us what kind of changes you made to the bike. All of our answers are hypothetical. You need to provide a bit more information.

    I had the same problem on my Heckler. It sounds like blown seals to me. I had a very tiny chip on my shock tube that after riding the trail was enough to tear the seals inside the shock. Almost identical to what you are describing. Take it to the shop and have them take a look as said above. My guess is bad/blown seals.

    When he says "the shock shaft appears to be the same amount" this sounds like something completely different. If the shock was bottoming out because it was blown, it would not have the same amount of shock shaft exposed.

    It's pretty apparent that there are details that are missing, or he's having a problem communicating his problem.
