    Tail Bob on a Trek Fuel EX9??

    Allright, I've had my Trek Fuel EX9 for 1 year, everything has been great, but I've recently noticed after some heavy riding over the winter and spring, I'm developing a tail bob problem when my suspension is locked out. This is much worse than when I first purchased the bike, I realize there will be some give, but looks like the rear suspension is flexing about an inch or more. I want to take care of this sooner than later, any suggestions, I've messed with the gate and rebound, and pumped the shock to 140 psi, could it be the shock? thx.

    Have the shock serviced by an authorized dealer. It seems that the lock out is not working properly. I have a 2004 Fuel 98 with a Fox Pro Pedal shock and when I lock it out there is no give at all. However, I never lock it out because the Pro Pedal does a really good job (unlike the SID Team fork, which bobs quite a bit when hammering out of the saddle).
    My rides:
    Lynskey Ti Pro29 SL singlespeed
    GF Superfly 29er HT
    S-Works Roubaix SL3 Dura Ace
    Pake French 75 track
