    Of course not. All that excess weight.

    Now why didn’t I think of that? – clever!

    I add extra o-rings. That way, one records max travel per day while one does total travel per day.

    I’ve recently fitted a pair of Rebas after riding rigid for a few years. The damper leg has an O ring fitted, which is great for checking sag. However as it moves up the leg with compression it collects lub. left on the leg from the seals and also collect dust and muck. Since I’ve been riding some dusty, stoney terrain this accumulating paste has the danger of becoming somewhat abrasive; I’m wondering whether this might ultimately damage the stanchions.

    Do people leave their O rings fitted or is there any wisdom in removing them?

    One on each leg to make sure your forks are balanced. 😉

    It does have a use: add some chain lube to the stanchion, then bounce. The ring collects all the trail crud in one place to wipe off away from the seals. One on both forks of course, that helps the balance, as ^ 😉
