does anyone know anything about this fork ? I keep haveing problems with it. while my stance was in the shop, I just put my EXR back on my P. so that I could ride. it works okay for a couple of bumps, but if you get agressive at all with the fork. the rebound slowls to an unbelieveable rate. it takes a good 2 seconds for the fork to completly expand again. I got it to work at an alright rate...by pumping the stupid thing up to 65PSi at that point its almost rigid. I was going to just use this fork on a am/trail bike i'm building, but not with this problem. does anyone know whats wrong with it ?

I think I know...

It's an EXR Comp. 'Nuff said? You've been down this road a few times with this fork if I can recall. The EXR Comp's have always been a problem. I had an '04 EXR Pro, which was a dual coil, SSV dampened fork and it wasn't bad. Think of it as stripped down MX Comp with no ETA. In any event, I wouldn't put that fork on a bike designed for aggressive riding. It's just not going to cut it.
