About 3/4 way through todays ride... suddenly no more suspension in front. Anyone know what this could be/ solution.
It's still under warranty so I'll take it in tomorrow.

    Is the compression / lockout dial fully anti-clockwise?

    Lockout dial is all the way anti-clockwise. I get exactly same distance of suspension (visible per dust on forks) whether full anti or full clockwise.

    This happened to me at Glentress whilst at a demo day. Luckily there was a SRAM technician there who knew the problem straight away.

    It's one of the seals inside that has blown which effectively puts it into a hydraulic lock. Mine was under warranty and they repaired it for free.

    Take it back to the shop you bought it from and ask them to send it back to SRAM

    Hope this helps

    Thanks for that. Similar happened to a mate, but his blew seal & lost all damper... just went soggy.
    Aaargh, got Test Valley event next week..... Typical.

    Or maybe the lowers are full of shite/water.

    This happened to my brothers, i took them apart and loads of fluid came out.

    Well dropped bike off this afternoon. Agreed there's definately something wrog, but they have to go back to Rockshox. So the waiting game begins.

    LBS called bike ready & collected. Hopefully out for a ride tomorrow to try out the repaired forks. Seems like there was quite a bit of repair required.
    Advantage of dealing with LBS IMO. All covered by warranty. Took just 8 days.
    HAPPY!

    it is always go to know which spring medium your fork uses.

    it is either an air fork or a coil sprung fork.not both :wink:
