    Super T/ Norco questions

    First off, can someone tell me why my super t is acting up. heres the low down.... i took it apart a while ago to paint it and all. so i figure while i'm at it i will change the oil, no problem right? well after everything is finished and the oil is in, i cant get the thing to stiffen up. i've check the oil three times, its about 5-10mm over the suggested height. as in, its about 165 or 170 from the top when fully compressed. yet, i can still bottom it out just but locking the front and pushing down hard on the bars. i tried putting the preload all the way in, as in all the way clockwise. nothing. i cant get it to not bottom out on anything bigger than about 3 feet. help! i have no idea whats wrong.

    and the other thing, anyone know how to get ahold of spare norco derailluer hangers. i have an 04 fuse and mines all bent up. its been aligned too many times and is on its way out. plus i like to have spares with me when i ride. but i cant find an email on the norco website, or even a phone number. any ideas?'

    thanks

    how much do you weigh and is it the recommended height for your weight? you might need stiffer springs.

    i used 7.5wt. i think it was finishline stuff. i used a regular dipstick like from an engine. i know i didnt measure it wrong. i've done it 3 times using differant methods. i wonder if the guy i bought it from used 10wt... now that u mention that. maybe i'll try some heavier oil.. but still i know it comes with 7.5 stock so it shouldnt be doing this...
