I have this new fork on my S-Works Epic (solo air), and I think either I'm losing air out the top side, or somehow the the equilibrium is not being maintained and it all goes to the bottom, making the fork seem as if it has less than 2" of travel.

I can reset it: You have to undo the bolt at the bottom, and let out the air from there (not easy), the fork goes right back up.

Speiclized told my dealer to reset it as above, and thought it would not be an ongoing issues. But it's happened 3 times in a row now and unfortunately with limited time I won't be able to do anything about until next week. Meanwhile I have a 4 hour race Sunday.

Does anyone have another idea of what I might try before Sunday? A rebuild or replacement is not in the works before then.

I'm thinking I'll reset it, and then either ride it locked out or on it's heaviest brain compression setting. It will really sucks though as when the fork is working the bike is incredible. I don't think there is anything else I can do? I've only been riding the just over a week :(

Had the same issue on both of my epic's with solo air. Had to send them back to SRAM in Chicago and had all new internals replaced and have been perfect since.
