    Lefty Qcho pumping down?

    Before I go through the efforts of sending back, I was wondering if any has heard of this... After riding aggressively for a little while, the shock starts to pump down, almost all the way to the bottom of the stroke. Once in this state, the bike is almost unreadable because of bottoming and the drastic change in geometry. This could have been the cause of a coupla broken ribs from a high speed pedal strike that seemed impossible at the time.

    Since the shock will return to normal after being parked for an hour or so, I'm assuming air gets progressively pumped and trapped on the negative side.

    Thanks!

    Thatís the same issue I had with my Lefty PBR. Could be just a bad seal. Worst case scenario your lower needs to be replaced.
