Technical Bulletin for Epic AFR shock bottom-Out C-Clip Install
This technical bulletin has been out since January (see link below). Note the pdf and video. Hopefully at this point all the affected Epic AFR shocks have been modified. As stated in the bulletin this affects Epics with carbon links.
All shocks produced after the announcement were fixed at the factory, all shops that sold or stocked Marathons and S-works bikes (only ones affected) were recieved spacers that should have been installed....I'm sure everyone will be just fine.
