    2 2013 S Works Epics fork travel different?

    Check out these fork markings. One seems to have 120 travel or am I missing something? Both stock bikes with no mods to the fork. Both med also.

    my vote is both are 100mm like they should be but the top one seems to be stuck down in its travel a little bit.

    adumb is correct. I know the title says 2013, but if it's a 2012 or earlier fork, it'll have a dual air adjustment. If that's the case, let some air out of the neg. chamber to clear it up.

    If it's a 2013 solo air fork... well I got nothing.

    Ok both have 100mm from seal to top. They are both solo air with 100 psi. Bottom line Rock Shox just stamped the forks different. Those markings seem incorrect anyway, best way to check sag is to just measure the o ring distance from the seal.

    Agreed. I have the 12 and 13, the markings are different. I used a ruler to check and they are both 100mm.

    I have a 2013 Epic comp and my fork did the same thing. It dropped about 20mm of travel when I took it to the shop they said my internal air spring was broken. Once they replaced it the travel went back to normal.
