got a pair of Z1 free rides on my mtb

the lock out adjuster has snapped but you can still turn the adjuster with a pair of pliers but has no effect on the forks.

the forks basically lock out as your are riding/ put weight over the front of the bike

but an gradually returned to uncompressed state after 30mins or so.

anyone any ideas?

much love
