    Help! Fox fork 32 talas FIT RLC 2012

    Hi guys, I am in riding in southern Spain and have another 6 days of riding,but I have developed the tell tale " loose headset feeling" as I am riding which I think is my bushings. The play is very noticeable while riding and I can feel the play even with my hands. The shops in the area I am biking, Fuengirola, can not service my forks. The question I have is if I keep riding will I damage my forks with that much play?

    Thanks guys

    Yessiry. Everything in question would be replaceable (and Fox would probably do that anyway, when it was sent in for service) but I would can the riding before you do serious damage.

    No offense, but double check your headset (grab the fork upper and your stem, with the bike in a stand, and try to push it back and forth). If it's really bad, I doubt your fork degenerated that badly in less than a week.

    The fork should have a little bit of play in it. Are you feeling something extreme, how old is it and what's the service history?

    Sure it's not the hub or the brake pads moving inside the caliper?
