I keep reading how there's a ratchet built into Marzocchi's thru-bolts, but just want this clarified.
I have a 2009 fork with 20mm thru-bolt. At the bottom of the LHS leg are 3 'teeth' that protrude from the 20mm hole. The thru-bolt has a sprung part that hooks onto these teeth.
I seem to have 2 problems:
1) With thru-bolt really tight (I mean if I tighten the lever with my foot) it's pointing forwards at the 3 o'clock position
2) I can loosen the bolt just by turning the lever anti-clockwise - I don't have to push the sprung notch at the other end to disengage it from the teeth.
Is the 'ratchet' mechanism that people refer to simply the 'teeth' and notched part on the LHS of the thru-bolt ?
Can I choose which position the lever sits in when fully tightened ?
