    2016 Fox 32 Compression: Open/Medium = No Difference

    I can't figure out if there is an issue with my fork, or if I'm just not sensitive to the adjustments, but I can't feel any difference between the open and medium settings on the fork. Also, zero clicks and 22 clicks feel the same in open. Should I be able to feel a difference when standing above the bike and compressing the shock?

    Firm/lockout seems ok. Although it's not much of a lockout, as I can still compress the fork if I really get on it.

    I'm coming from a SID Rct3, which had a noticeable difference in the middle position.

    Yes, should be able to feel a difference when you ride. 2016 medium is more open than their previous trail mode IMO. Just pushing on the handlebars may not be different. Ride a down hill section in each mode and see how it feels.

    There is movement in firm but not much.

    I have a 2016 34 and it's the best fork I've ever had.
    Sometimes you eat the trail, sometimes the trail eats you.

    Thinking of buying a home?
