    I'm a Jerk !!!

    I rode LH Thomson yesterday and then STYGZ1 and I met up and rode it this evening. I was thinking after these 2 rides that I sure did feel beat up and couldn't figure out why ? On the downhill sections the roots were bouncing me all over the place. Well upon inspection I had forgotten to unlock my front fork from last time I went for a road ride. Now I get to wear the jerk hat until my next ride

    Everyone with a lockout will probably do that at some point. (I have, and cried myself to sleep).

    LOL- yeah I hear about the cry yourself to sleep... Feel like I was drug behind the bike rather than riding it.

    I have but my old FoX Vanilla RLC has a blowoff valve. When the fork is locked out the first "hard" hit the blow off happens and puts it back in the rugular mode.

    Like your little Tikitahn...Fluffy get's nothing but the best. He's an indoor cat, but has an outdoor roofed kennel with a little cat door into our bedroom. He loves ice in his water, which he gets several times a day. He's sitting in my lap as I type this. Fluffy says "Hi."

    I've actually done this a few times but catch it when either my hands hurt or I hit something
    And I worried about it a bit does it hurt the front shock to do it occasionally?

    Your not a jerk, a fool maybe, but not a jerk. Reaching over and locking your friends fork out while he wasn't looking would make you a jerk.

    Yeah I know right ? I don't know what I must have been thinking. Went out to the garage that night and switched off my fork lock
