hi guys. could do with a little help. just built my bike with 160mm travel rock shox pikes. however they are sitting a little to low. my brother and mate both have 160s and are sat a lot higher than mine. anything simple or will it involve getting them looked at?
you can tell by the markings on them that they are not right. even when putting your foot on the wheel and pulling the front end up they suck straight back down. any help will be appreciated
thanks

Remove the air cap and cycle the fork - should hear a suction sound when you forcefully extend and that's the positive and negative chambers equalizing. Replace top cap and pump up to get 20% sag or so while in standing/attack mode with some weight on the bars.

Have FUN!

Nice one mate that was spot on thanks.
I guess that came from pumping it up for my much heavy brother to have a go and then letting it back down for me?

thanks again.
