    Epic Fox F100 RL Pressure Loss?

    Is this normal? I've had my Epic for ~ 3 weeks and noticed a 20 psi loss of pressure in that time. This would be over about 90 miles of riding. I reset it to 110 psi the other night and then last night raced the bike in a local series. I noticed over some of the harder hits, the fork would make a higher pitched noise, like air rushing, as it reached the end of its travel.

    Is this stuff typical? I've never had an air-sprung fork before.

    Thanks.

    I should mention that I have never bottomed the travel on the fork before - last night the course was pretty bumpy in sections and I was riding the bike a bit harder than normal

    I've seen as much as 10 PSI change in mine with the change of the seasons, but they hold air pretty well. I have 3 Fox forks and 2 shocks in the household and have never had that problem. Just keep an eye on it, you'll probably be okay.
