    Oil leak on my Sherman Flick........

    On the bottom of the fork, right where the blue rebound knob is I have a small amount of oil leaking out. The knob is always a bit wet with oil. I wipe it off, and after a ride its wet again. Time for new seals? Anyone have the same problem?
    Thank you.

    There's a little rubber o-ring between the bolt and the lowers.. Sometimes it gets deformed or twisted. You can actually pick up similar o-rings from your hardware store for plumbing purposes and they work fine.

    Just as previous reply has mentioned, it's the o-ring inside the rebound knob area. Luckly it's not a damper oil. Same thing happened to my Sherman Firefly and my friend's Minute. Very common problem. My LBS took care of it in 5 minute without a charge. So I hook them up with a 6 pack of good brew and they were happy as "pig in the mud". Small payback goes a long way over the long haul... I could have taken care of it myself but sometimes it's not necessary.
