Indeed. Suspension feels like such a "black art" to me, that I could see getting really rolled. I went with recommendations from my riding buddies, who have been very successful with this guy. At...

I actually have the Scotts Damper. Have had it since very early on because once I put TKC's on, the bike was a little scary at 80+ in wind, with the handlebars shaking back and forth. I had a...

So, the AK-20's have been installed. No obvious breakage in the parts in the old forks, so it may be something internal to the cartridge itself. The suspension guy also said they weren't working...
