    Mine had its maiden voyager and it was awesome! Front wheel need to go back to the shop though, I don't think the tubeless tyre is sitting right, like riding an egg. Still fantastic though. I was pleasantly surprised on the climbs too and the dropper post! How did I live without one

    I have the same amount of travel and stiffness whatever setting its at, could it be faulty?

    Doesn't sound right. Did you set up/air up the shock and fork?

    I have read that some of the ctd open bath cartridges are failing. Take it back to your lbs and have then contact fox. My friend with a trance x just had this problem

    Definitely a problem with that. Mine is a 2011 without DRCV, but the lockout on mine is way different than not locked out. Definitely noticeable. The rear shock is a lot less noticeable when I forget to unlock (RP2)

    I'm really hoping it's not a huge problem. The LBS isn't really very local, I'll be mightily pissed off if I have to send it away!

    If its the common problem that I've been hearing about then it needs fox to send parts to replace the cartridge. I know it's only the open bath cartridges so I'm not sure if the RF pro has the open bath or same as a fit

    Just been having a fiddle with them and no matter what setting/amount of air the travel feels exactly the same. Now I'm pissed off!

    I'll have to check mine in the morning. I kept the forks in the trail setting when I was climbing yesterday. Your lbs did cycle the fork when setting up for you did they Ready?

    They were working fine last week when riding over flat land, bridleways etc but since i took it to my local forest trail (that isn't terribly bumpy) they've stopped working properly!

    I bought a 2012 Rumlefish Elite in July and had to exchange the shock first thing because it wasn't holding air through an entire ride. I've never seen a high pressure air shock with a slow leak!

    I just had a fork seal blow after 4 months of use. This bike is amazing and worth a couple hassles though.

    I put a flat carbon Answer Protaper bar (the 2012 came with a riser), Ergon grips and a 2.4 Purgatory front tire (tubeless). I just plow over everything on the Colorado Front Range at high speed with a big grin on my face.

    All I'm thinking of doing is adding a dropper post but adding another pound!?!?

    I also saw that you can have 5cc or 10cc air volume limiters installed in the fork since a lot of people are finding the fork to dive and not match the firmness of the shock. I'm thinking of trying these to see if that's why I went through seals so fast.

    I'm not sure about the issues your having Ready, but I did read that the fox 2013 forks, the climb setting is far from a lock out like with other forks, and fox say working as intended it seems. Mentions it in the link below:-

    Thanks for the link Grundy, but I'll be taking it back to the store. No matter how much air i put in the 3 CTD settings feel identical when riding. Something's not right somewhere, and I'm really f**ked off right now!

    Hope you get it sorted soon mate. Its a new bike so you'll have no issues i'm sure, but its a bloody pain in the arse having to take it back to the shop etc. I'll see how mine behaves on Sunday. It does feel kind of squishy is all 3 modes but I'm a bit new to doing things with suspension settings.

    This might clear things up a little. The good news is it sounds like Fox is taking good care of people.

    Kind of makes it a bigger pain in the arse because it 's a new bike!

    Thanks for the heads up on the forum link Q, that sounds exactly like the problem I'm getting.
