    Well, most of what we've been doing is of the "trundle downhill and hope it stops kinda in the right spot" variety. But yesterday's project was a little more involved. We actually had one really...

    The whole trail is a fun little project. Semi-uninteresting terrain that we're trying to make more interesting with rock work (since there's a ton of fairly move-able rock in the vicinity).

    I also think that smaller, lippy-er jumps feel weird on that bike as much as anything because it's pretty damn long. The more dirt jumpy the lip is, the more I've struggled to make it feel not...

    The fox is a sealed system, so theoretically it should be fine. Ride it - if it feels ok, I wouldn't sweat it. If it's a pogo stick, it'll need to be sent off to be serviced (or just replaced).

    Just ride it. It should be fine.

    Although proper maintenance on a Lefty includes burning it until nothing is left, and then buying pretty much anything else.
