- Fox 36 lowers issue
It’s quite infuriating that is well known design flaw, probably why changed design now, and they don’t do anything about it. Even to offer a slightly discounted lower replacement would engender good will, yes I accept some responsibility for over tightening but if is known fault they should share liability.Posted 7 years ago
With my mass and riding style not even going to chance it, putting my old Dukes back on the stiffee until resolve. May look into repair but could be in contact for lowers cheers LoCo.
Got a problem with one side of lowers on said fork. Changed car year ago to one without towbar so have been putting bike in car, and removing wheels to do so. Front of fork by axle has 2 forward pointing bolts going into a crossways pin to pinch axle. one set per leg – make sense?
Last week noticed is crack in metal around the crossways pin and radiating out, one leg only. Mojo say is torque set bolts so no warranty, fair enough I don’t carry torque wrench but surely a ruff tough fork should be better designed? Also I am aware of being not the only person with this issue.
So question is, repairable or new lowers? I was thinking try local engineer/ frame builder, see if can weld/ put some sort of sleeve in place to repair?
Cheers in advance, sorry long winded explanation.Posted 7 years ago
Just spoke with my mate, a blacksmith, who says will probably cost more than the replacement lowers. That’s if I can even find somebody local to do it. Apparently quite complex involving shielding gasses and other such complex sounding things.Posted 7 years ago
Now just to convince the wife, who’s offered new lowers as my Christmas present, that it is actually being held in October this year 🙂
