Who thought it is a good idea to use 50 shades of grey and Orange/More Orange/Kinda Red colours for those graph lines? :D

Otherwise it's super interesting stuff. Especially the trends over time.
Also funny to see how much money US people get thrown at them. My bike is...more

I'd recommend using the uh recommended fluids for whatever suspension you have. We do seal compatibility testing with the fluids and can only guarantee the stock fluid won't swell or shrink the seals. Different suspension fluids from the same company ... more »

you bent a set screw in the eyelet- shouldn't affect the performance at all provided you can still leave the lever in the correct locations for riding. (pointed down for open mode and 90 degrees for lockout) This was a common issue- the newer RL models ... more »
