Just thought I'd let you know that they turned them around in 2 days and they have been fine since.

Well done Merlin.

I've spoken with Merlin and they said to send them back. They claim that they have seen this before and believe it is down to trying to turn the travel adjuster too far, causing an internal circlip to pop off/fail. I don't believe I have ever tried to turn the adjuster too far as it is pretty obviou...

Revelation help - pumping up, uppers jump 15mm out of lowers

My Revelation just went pop on the adjuster leg The seal popped up along with a nice foam ring. :( I was just starting my ride when I noticed the fork was 15mm longer than 130mm and it felt knocky returning from the first 20mm travel. So I popped back home and let both pressures out. Started pumping...

There are disks that are brake specific. But most aftermarket disks can be used on a few different brakes. Easiest option is to get disks that are advertised for your particular brakes.

The neg chamber in the fork is of a lower volume than the positive chamber so by letting the pressure out of the fork to fill the pump/gauge it has a much bigger effect (your 40psi) and the pumps will have different size internal chambers in them which is why you are getting two different drops in ...

Thanks guys, in that case I won't be setting the pressure to 170 then.

I'll set them to 20 below what the manual says and then add 5 on for the amount lost at disconnect time.

No, when I connect the pump, I pump to say 170.

Disconnect.

Connect again and it reads 140.

Disconnect.

Connect again and it reads 110.

So, I figure that the act of connecting and disconnecting between them lose say 30psi?

Ok, I have connected, disconnected many times and it does appear as if I am losing 35-40psi whenever I disconnect the pump from negative. Topeak DXG (which I thought was meant to be a good pump, maybe I got a dodgy one). I have about a 5psi loss when doing the same from positive which I believe to b...

I have exactly the same problem with my Revelations. The negative looses about 30-40psi when diconnecting the pump, Topeak DXG.

The core seems tight enough, can I swap it with one from an inner tube? or must it be car tyre spec.

Take a look at the spec of the expert. Then select parts that are at least 2 levels up from that :)

I rode the spesh whilst on holiday in Greece and boy did you feel the extra weight up the hills.

Never heard anyone say a bad word against the Tyax.

Well I've just been out for an hour or two on the bike :) I LOVE these forks! They are super smooth and soak up everything my local trail has to offer with ease. Bare in mind that my wrist is still a bit dodgy from 10 weeks ago and yet I didn't even feel a twinge. So I didn't drop off anything large...

Leaky, sorry matey but I've managed to buy the same seat post as you now. It was a bargain that I couldn't resist. I promise to stick to FSA when I buy my carbon bars though :)
