My cup runneth over
I have 7 or 8 rides on my 2008 XC600 ATA TST2 and it really feels UN-plush. I have tried it at 80, 90 and 100 lbs with no help in plushness. I have messed with the rebound and compression too with no impact either. I am 190 lbs and running it on a Turner Burner. It appears to have A LOT of stiction too (not sure I really understand if this is truly stiction) but it takes a lot of force to break into it travel. When climbing I am used to my forks bobbing a lot unless locked out/having compression damping engaged; this XC 600 sinks into its travel on climbs and stays there – no bobbing – I have to really pump the handlebars to get it to bob. Other forks I have ridden on this bike (two other Marz, Fox 100 and two Manitous) were far more plush. Is there an oil reservoir on this fork that has inadequate oil in it? Any ideas? Thanks.
