Hey folks. The RST Snyper fork is set up at 100mm travel but looks like it's only getting 80mm.

There's about 20mm from the top of the stanchion to where the o-ring rests after fully compressing the fork.

Anyone know how to free up that travel?

So I got in contact with RST. They sent me a CAD diagram of the fork. The maximum compression will yield about 18mm of stanchion still exposed by design. I measured, and am still getting 100mm of travel, therefore there is 118mm of stanchion exposed. when fully extended.

How is this fork holding up? I'm considering a new bike for my 7 year old - this or rigid. I'm a ludite , but want to give her the best trail riding experience to get psyched.
Is it as fussy as most 29er forks? Subtly responsive?
I'm happy with the fork. I think it works well. Here's a video of the suspension travel in use:
