    Earthpig's in StealthMode

    Earthpig goes underground during weekdays - He's trying to wean himself from the nipple.

    Last I heard he had sent his rear shock back to the factory for some FoxLove.

    I checked the bushing for play, and the klunking wasn't coming from there - it was coming from the shock itself (not to mention the "extra-long" bottom out issue and the need to run an excessive amount of air to correct the sag). Anyway, I pulled the shock off and sent it back to Fox on Monday. Brian finished rebuilding the Superlight and it's riding great...except for needing a new upper shock bushing itself!!

    you must have the worst luck ever with fox products...

    I hope I don't catch it since I am riding my first fox product after a manitou addiction.

    No, apparently Fox is reliable for everyone but me. If I keep having problems with my Fox products, I think it means that everyone else in Boise is OK. Probabilities and all.
