mmuaahaha dont you love the innuendo... it looks like my chap was/is bent... the shaft on my romic is loose on the inside of the shock body side to side... and the piston feels disconnected... i hope it doesnt explode 2morrow at mountain creek (diablo) :( . has anyone had this problem before?? is there a way to tighten it myself? it looks like everything is going back to banshee :rolleyes: but it seems like their warantee is really good (the cracked frame replacement.. forgot his name)... if anyone has pointers let me know. Also, if anyone will be at mountain creek 2morro (sunday) let me know.. always lookin for people to ride with.

Oh yeah, i had a similer problem with the piston seperating from the shaft. The claimed cause was piston drag, and it definitely "broke". I do not think it is a matter of "screwing back on, it's probably had it.

Romics are trash IMO.
