... or any forks, for that matter?
I don't get it.
On an 'upright' bike:
1) There is a reservoir of fork oil (15ml per leg on my Rebas) held in place by gravity at the bottom of the outer slider thingy
2) There are seals and foam ring bits at the top of the outer slider thingy, which will need some form of lubrication to work properly, presumably provided by said oil
Does the oil magically 'whoosh' up there somehow while riding? (..how does this happen?)
If riding the bike somehow causes this movement of oil, why does the performance of my forks gradually go 'off' during a ride, only to be re-affirmed just as soon as I turn the bike upside down for a bit, thereby forcing oil into the upper bits of the slider?
I removed my foam rings in an ongoing bid to reduce stiction on my probably a-bit-past-their-best stanchions, was this a good idea?
