I experience shock failure this weekend for the second time in less than a year. I was running about 160 psi in the cartridges, and I weigh about 180 lbs. In the past, I have noticed that the opinion of the CX-1 seems to be evenly split between those who have multiple failures and those who's forks just seem to keep on truckin like the doodah man. Is this a weight issue? I have never had a suspension fork apart (I rode Cannondales for years), so I don't have any idea how the damn thing works, but the carts are still holding air. I'm thinking that maybe I ought to move to a coil fork, and I do like the rigidity of the CX-1, so I'm thinking that when I do make the move it'll be into the BW 1.0. BTW, I ride in Michigan, XC with not very much in the way of drops or anything. Opinions?
