    New question here. Fine tuning an 11 X-Fusion Velvet RL?

    I have last years Velvet RL and have only one complaint...small bump compliance. Not sure if I am running too much air, it's around 75 psi, but the fork seems a bit stiff on the small stuff. Ripping trails and hitting med to big feels real good, just the little stuff, it almost feels semi-locked out. Anyone running into this on this fork set at 130mm?

    Its like new with only a couple hundred miles on her. Bought the 2011 mid last season.

    Here is the message I received back promptly from John at X-Fusion:

    Sounds like you need a overhaul on the lowers. Clean that puppy up and re-lube her right. She sounds a bit dry. Download the pdf on our website the shows how to do travel adjust and that's basically the same thing you would have to do when servicing the lowers. Fresh oil and slick honey will make her feel nice and smooth.

    Also your air pressure setting should be around 70-75psi.

    WE'VE MOVED TO A NEW LOCATION!!!!!!
