Here's a thought.

02 Aug 2007 at 22:44

A Fox forx is stored upside down for 7 months, then 7 weeks upright, then ridden.. could the oil work it's way around the seal and soak into the sponge and retained by the dust seal, then, one ride and POOOSH it all squirts out.

Could be a reason for the leak.

(I am too lazy to replace the forks today)

Here's another thought: Fox Forx are overpriced rubbish. My Z1 SL's have been a a kachillion times betterer than the set of Talas I had.

Bombers are shite.
My Z1's are beginning to fall apart from the inside as the aluminium at the bottom of the legs flakes apart.
Bah! They are only 8 years old :0)
Still the best forks I've ever had. They would have been perfect if they could lose 1/2lb and gained a little in ridgidity.
