    Trek Top Fuel push to unlock issues

    Anyone else having problems with the spring tension on this shock lockout? I recently got a 2018 TF 9.7 and the remote lockout has been giving me issues. It's been to do with the spring tension on the compression pully doesnt return very well once you release the cable tension on the remote. I ended up pulling the shock lockout apart and regreasing the spring. Has a made it a little better.
    Push to unlock just seems like a really bad design for a shock. Anyone know what would be involved to convert it to a push to lock?

    The thing I'd look at is the cable aiming for a good, clean, low-friction installation.

    Anyway, that's more a Fox thing than a Trek thing. You might bet more/better answers in the suspension or XC forums.
    Do the math.
