front forks

Recommended Posts

I just have a question regarding my front forks. I release the pressure out of the forks after every ride, yet for the past 2 rides, the right fork has released absolutely no air, and the left one still does. Not sure why, the screw is on tight, any other suggestions?

Air being released from the fluid maybe? I dont get any air out of my forks (at least that I can tell) about 90% of the time. When I do its mostly right after as I change the oil.

Were they bled correctly?

well I'm talking about the air release screw/valve, the forks have felt a little weird on my last ride, almost as if the forks were too soft for how they are normally set up.

I wouldn't worry about it. I did read not long ago to only let the air out off your forks

when they are cold and on the bike stand.

The left fork has heat from the brake being transferred to it while riding. Not unusual for it to pressurise a bit more.
