Hey all,
I'm planning on attending a group ride this Sunday morning, and I just found out that the temps will be in the mid-teens for the start of the ride. I've ridden my FS in upper 20's temps, but am wondering if I'm risking damage to my fork or shock when riding in the teens. Any thoughts or experiences?

BTW - Shock is an RP3 and fork is an AMSL.

The only issue that I have heard is that there is a higher chance of stuck down shocks when it is really cold..... good to cycle it a couple of times to get the lube moving before getting on the bike..

I've been winter riding for 2 1/2 seasons now and never had any shock/fork issues, shifting is another matter, when it gets real cold (-15f) sometimes the shifters freeze up . I've found that if you open the cable hole and squirt some wet chain lube in , all is well.
