While we're on forks..... Anyone had their XC forks apart?
I wanted to perhaps reduce the preload (cut down any spacer in there) and/or remove some oil to make them a little softer and, hopefully, make the ride less jittery on the road. When I unscrewed one of the top caps, it didn't want to come off. When it reached the top of the thread it snapped back as if it was being held down by something inside.
Any clues anyone?
