So on the ride yesterday my Talas 36 started acting very peculiar. Upon stopping at an intersection to wait for my friends I noticed that the fork felt much stiffer (more difficult to compress) than normal, and topped out with a clunk as if it had zero rebound. I slowed the rebound down a few clicks which didn't help at all. I reached a point with the rebound dial where if I slowed the rebound a single click the fork rose very slowly as if it had full rebound damping. This was not at the end of rebound adjustment towards the fully damped end, and the difference between full fast rebound with a clunk and ridiculously slow rebound was only one click of the dial.
At this point I'm sure I've blown something in the fork, so I dial down the Talas system to the 130mm mode to see if that still works. It does, and after setting the Talas knob back to 160mm I cycle the fork a few times and it seems to be functioning properly again. No top out with a clunk, and the effort required to compress the fork seemed as it was previous to the strange behavior.
After riding a little while the problem came back and the cycle continued.
Any thoughts on what may be wrong?
