    Lefty Max Bearings Migration

    No Flexy, Superb Drivetrain, Excellent filings, No Bob, but.. after cca 12 hours of riding Leftys Crown go down about 2,5 cm!!!. This geometry was terrible. Now is all O.K. After my intervention I put bearings to right position and th forks lenght is right now.
    Is bearings migration normal phenomenon or my Lefty is bad? Thank you for your notes.

    "Normal", the less pre-load the more migration. Taking the cap off and slamming down the fork to reset the bearing is just a part of my maintenance plan.
