Wow, that's weird. I've had a switch for about 30k miles and have had no issues at all--and my dash ABS light is on when the ABS is off. No clue.

Forks or Rear Shock

It's very small. Comparable I think to the big agnes stuff in similar fill values. Mines 800 fill and the smallest packing bag I own, since it uses an uninsulated sleeve like the BA stuff.
