    rock shox dart 1 problem??????

    i just bought a 07 trek 6000 on it and I noticed the front shocks are making a sqeaking or squealing noise when hitting a bump or putting some weight on the front end ...it almost sounds like an old bed spring matress,,, Is this normal for the dart 1 shox or do i have a problem??? thanks for your help

    Are you sure it's the fork? Try compressing it while NOT riding and try to determine where the noise is coming from.

    So to answer your question, yes, mine is completely quiet.

    it MAY be the disk brakes hitting the brake pads and squealing, or your quick release is sliding (not good!), check it for tightness.

    Don't get upset but Dart 3 is as worthless as Dart1/2 I've have just replaced forks on my Trek 6000 and my wife's 4300 with Rockshox Tora 302

    I have a trek 4500 and my shock makes the same noise. I told my lbs and they said that it is fine. I don't think they are right. WTF!

    I think the offer for the upgrade would make me as well.
