Hello Folks

Looks like I have a problem: when I rotate the preload knob on the rear shock nothing moves, and it feels rather loose when I turn the knob, no resistance at all.

Anyone know of a solution for this?

Search for the thread to fix the leaky o-ring in the preload adjuster.

"Older people who are reasonable, good-tempered, and gracious will bear aging well. Those who are mean-spirited and irritable will be unhappy at every period of their lives.

"Let each of use properly whatever strengths he has and strive to use them well. If he does this, he will never find himself lacking."
