I've got an 05 fisher big sur, purchased new in June (found a really good deal). The bike is great aside from one thing. Riding over rough terrain or bumps at all produces quite a bit of clatter noise from the front end, it seems like something in my fork is maybe loose or something (manitou skareb super). Or is this just how air forks are?
The fork is great otherwise, vast improvement over my old bike/fork.
TIA

I don't know what you're referring to when you say topout. Could you explain.

Yesterday haflway through my ride, something happened to the fork. It almost quit working completely. I was getting minimal harsh compression, so it pretty much felt like I was riding a bike with a rigid fork. I took it to the shop today, hopefully it can be fixed.

well the mechanic said it was busted and couldn't figure out what was wrong. Said he's never seen a fork break like this. It has to be sent back to the company to be rebuilt/replaced.
