    Stuck down?

    The DHX A on my Moment was stuck down a couple days ago, i was able to fix it perhaps temporarily with help from a thread on the turner forum.

    Now I'm curious, How many other people have had this problem with thier FLOAT/RP3/DHX Air? what frame was it on?

    I suppose you've seen the letter from Fox?

    Better send that sucker back to Fox and get you a DHX-Coil!

    No need to get a coil. Send it to Fox and get a new seal in it. They are currently paying shipping both ways for the repair.
    Nothing to see here.

    Yeah, I saw the letter first hand two days before it was posted on the board.

    I am seriously considering the coil, if the air didn't feel so buttery smooth I would have already given up on it.

    That's a good deal, well, if you HAVE to fix it, anyway.

    How's that SL working out? And, hey, where's the Marz girls? Perhaps the lady Smurf (what the hell was her name?) could do a spread for Marzocchi and you could have it all...

    I've got 1900 miles split between an '05 RP3 and an '06 DHX-Air on a Five Spot and both have performed flawlessly so far. My '05 TALAS, on the other hand, has developed a really annoying creak at the crown. Its at Fox now for repairs under warranty. I've heard from several others in the Turner forum who've had similiar creaking crowns. Fox seems to be having its share of issues lately.

    I did have a clunky DHX coil, but it's been fine since it came back from Fox the second time.
    {Principal Skinner} Hmm. Whoever did this is in very deep trouble.
    {Martin} And a sloppy speller too. The preferred spelling of 'wiener' is w - i - e - n - e - r, although 'e - i' is an acceptable ethnic variant.

    SL is working out just fine. I will be able to play with the setting more when my 0-100psi pump comes in.

    Reason for the smurf - due to my shorter stature I got called a smurf (jokingly I think) so I got a avatar to match. The girl smurf was Smurfette.

    Indeed! Smurfette...my sister had hundreds of these things.

    Well, I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say that we miss the Marzocchi "girls".

    What Letter are you talking about from Fox? And where can I read it?

    I saw it here: http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?t=157230

    But I think it was also on the Shocks forum. I don't recall seeing it there, though.
