    Crash the Dog is back! (Pics!!)

    Crash has awakened from his long winters nap, and was hittin all the shiz today. Drops, rollers, skinny's you name it. His new Gravity dropper was giving him some probs. It seems his GD caught the "stuck down syndrome".

    Cool pics mang! How is he liking the DHX-air for the drops? I'm getting a 5 Spot and ordered it with a DHX coil so I can put that on my Pack then put the air on the Spot. It just bottoms too easily.

    How do you go from the weather you see in the pic below to the weather you see in the pics above, in a 24 hour period of time? St. George rules.

    I prefer the DHX-A to the DHX-C. It's simply more plush. The only issue is that I have to run 285-290 psi to prevent it from bottoming out on anything over 3' to flat, and that is quickly approaching the 300 psi limit. If I know I won't be hitting anything over 3' I run 275 psi where the shock really shines with my 220 lbs of lard.

    Thanks for the homecoming pics El Chingon. Damn it's good to be on the bike again!

    Welcome back C-Dog! Glad you're back in the saddle.
    El C...adorable kids man!

    Crash that white fork looks mean on that frame.
    Hey what size frame is the one with the double taco?(El Ching's) XL?
    It also looks like his fork is set a lot taller. No?
    Faster is better, even when it's not.

    El Chingon's Pack is an XL sporting the 66 with 170mm of travel vs. my Z1 with 150mm.

    El Chig's Pack is XL with a 66, not a Z1.

    Edit: Crash beat me to it.

    Welcome back, Crash. Getting in shape for anything special?

    Interesting, so you're using the main chamber pressure to prevent bottoming and not the boost valve pressure. How does the extra 10-15psi in the main affect the overall ride quality and sag? Do you have the bottom out cranked all the way in?

    GD stuck down....

    happened on mine too. Was very easy to fix in my case. Lift up the boot from the bottom. Don't pull it down from the top near the saddle as it's a bit of bear to get it reseated. After lifting up you'l see a collar. Loosen it by han in quarter turn intervals until the post starts working again. If you loosen the collar too much then the seat will drop down unexpectedly from the extended position. After 1 minute of tightening/loosening I found the sweet spot and have had no problems since.

    EwwwwwWWWWW!!! Too much information!

    Sorry to hear about the GD Stuck down syndrome you & SS ran into. Squeak's advice is something I'm making a mental note of, JIC.

    Maybe a few less doughnuts fellas?

    I'll give SW's fix a try. Aappblings cable pod broke off his post after moving the lever to raise the post

    Mine works intermittently. I can always get it to pop back up from the slammed position (4" drop), but it when it gets stuck it's typically in the intermediate position (1" drop) and occasionally fully extended. I haven't had time to take it apart and diagnose the problem, it appears that it has something to do with the cable not pulling out the actuator pin. SSINGA let me know what GD has to say. I left a message with him this afternoon.

    Mine had a sticky spot for a while. The Squeaky remedy is good for this. It tends to be sticky until broken in, and opening it up and applying some triflow or very thin lube like King Ring Drive lube is good. Hit the pin in the mechanism and the guts below the wiper seal.

    If the post got bent and is getting stuck because of this, you obviously have bigger issues. If you unscrew the black plastic collar at the top of the lower post section you can lift the upper telescoping portion out and inspect it to see what the prob is.

    Mine only has the 4" position (for now) and will not full extend after being compressed unless I lift it up.

    That's happened to me too. GD suggested what SW described above. That fixed my stuck-down problem.

    El C, trying to get perspective on the last shot, where is the take off/landing? Looks like a killer landing from that angle?
