    Rockshox pike rebound bolt binding.

    Hi all,

    Ive lower leg serviced and changed the travel on my '13 pikes a fair few times since ive had them with no issues. Last week i went to change the travel from 120 to 130 chagin the air spring but for the life of me i couldnt get the rebound adjuster foot bolt undone it was just spinning freely turning the rod inside.

    I tried everything but it was having non of it. The only way i managed to get the bolt off was by hacksawing the bolt off the bottom of the leg and then using pliers winding the little thread left on off the bottom.

    Ive just managed to get hold of a new rebound adjuster and bolt and gone to fit it but im now finding its binding and will only go in a few mm of thread before it gets stuck. I aslo have another set of pikes and ive tried that bolt and have the same problem. Thing is the threads are fine as if i try threading in the bolt from the other leg that goes in fine with no problems.

    Has anyone had the same problem and any idea as to what the problem could be or how i can fix it?

    Many thanks

    If the problem follows the bolt it's the bolt. Can you chase the threads & try again? Many hardware stores sell those taps for about $5. Might be handy to chase those threade from time to time & anti-seize em.
