Alarming creaking noises from Fox fork – anyone else?
Quite a few people with crown/steerer or crown/stantion press-fit interface creaks from ’10/’11 Fox forks
Yes mine were creaking but have gone to be serviced at mojo… I had it if you grabbed the front tyre between your legs and twisted the handlebars hard.. grease all the controls, stem, handlebars to try n stop this…Slight worrying have a press-fit interface too… Giant anthem I have only just built 🙁
Hope mojo resolve mine too..Posted 5 years ago
I have a 2011 Fox 32 FIT RLC that came as std on my Trance. Lately it’s developed a terrible and alarming creaking/cracking sound from the front end when it’s loaded (ie, heavy front braking), then the same noise can be replicated by applying the brake and loading in the opposite direction (off the bike, front brake on, pick up the front end, then bounce it down and backward),as if something is moving. It’s definitely the fork itself, as it’s still doing it when held in a vice by the steerer and yanked by the legs. I’m thinking either steerer or upper legs moving in the crown. It’s gone back to Fox now via my LBS, but I’m wondering if anyone else has experienced the same issue and what the outcome was?Posted 5 years agosean222Member
I had this problem with 2010, 2011 kashima and 2012 kashima, all 100mm mojo were very understanding and helpful. They replaced the crown upper assembly every time but it shouldnt really happen imo. As above it is most likely crown/stanchion play. Was advised it may be “due to riding style”.Posted 5 years ago
I have since moved back to rs sids and have had no problems!ukmgrangerMember
I had the same problem with my Fox 32 Floats (2011). Took the bike (Orange Five) back to Leisure Lakes as it was within the years warranty. They sent the forks off to Mojo, and they came back with all new uppers! Including Kashima which I didn’t have before.
Took less than a week, so well chuffed with the service. I even have another years warranty on the forks now.Posted 5 years ago
