    Pike 454 leaking air at u-turn assembly, but only when at 140mm

    So I've got only 20 hours on this fork, and I can hear air seeping from the u-turn assembly area, and it gets louder the more I compress the fork...so its definitely having a problem. If I dial down the travel just 2 clicks, problem gone. Anyone else experienced this?

    I'll note that the bike was just at my shop for the inital tune up, and I heard the leak even as I was carrying the bike back into my apt. I noticed they stored the bike hanging from the front wheel, which I never did. Any ideas if oil sitting on the seals could of caused it while it was hanging? They only had it for 5 days. I haven't asked yet if they did anything else to it...they weren't supposed to.

    PS - Go France...I'll be away from my computer for a while...
    edit: Go Brazil?? no replies...guess I said too much.

    Thanks,
