My 2001 Z2 Atom Race is acting a little weird as of late. No, it isn't failing. (At least I hope
not!) On extended rides the adjustment dials at the top of each leg have been "backing themselves
off" 1/4 to 1/2 turn DURING particularly technical rides, when the fork is working hard. (at least
that's when I notice it.) It doesn't seem to effect the feel of the fork, but is visually noticable.
Has any other Zoke owners experienced this? If so what are some possible causes. There is no
leakage. I have the stiff springs installed, if that matters. Any thoughts?

It seems this group is more interested in trying to belittle people than to answer a question
concerning mountain biking, and or equipment. Does no one have any thoughts or answers on this
subject, or all you too busy trying to be badasses.

Or because you posted it just 3 hours ago, its the slowest time of the night for the group, its only
the third post from the top (neither of which have replies yet, or that nobody has that
experience...

Awww, didums! Ever thought that there might have been no one around for a few hours? Jerk.....

Right, only time I had anything like that (on my MXR's, that is) it was to do with the rubber flaps
on the front of my downtube mounted mud guard catching them and rolling them as I turned from lock
to lock. It's only pre-load on mine, only moved a turn or 2, so IDGAF anyhow.

Na, they were around, just not to talk about bikes. They kust wanted to hump my leg. Typical really.

Wow. Another whiny rant. And you're surprised that nobody wants to drop everything to give
you a hand.

Totally bizarre.

Why don't you shove it up your ass then? Brian Perterson @ Zoke has enlightened me already. As

And you are a prime example of the buzzard syndrome I spoke of. If none of you are concerned with
me, or my "lameness: why do you all read my post? Why do you, Greg feel the need to respond ro
someone as "bile" as me? hmm?

Do you own a bomber? If not then this question has absolutely nothing to do with you, as you have
nothing to offer. (Surprize, surprize)

The whole bike, or just the fork? Either way, it's gonna be a tight squeeze. Oooo, maybe that
goatse.cx guy could gie me some pointers!

Well, you do, if I'm gonna be shoving stuff up it. Frankly, I have no idea how that's going to fix
your fork, but hey - I'm here to serve the needs of my fellow MTBers!

No matter what you write, it's funny, and I get to laugh. Please, keep up with the whiny posts - I
have not laughed so hard in months.
