Problems with the Dart2 RockShox (Slackness)

Hello,
I am using the Rockshox Dart2 fork on my Scott Scale 70 bike and since a few miles (I got the bike since may) over uneven but hard surface (for example uneven country streets or village streets) I feel that the fork is slack. I can feel this even when I pull the front-break and joggle the handlebar but the headset is ok. I can localize the problem exactly on the fork. I know that the Dart2 isn't the best at all but I drove only 500 Miles with the Bike (its just my alternative bike).

And I ain't shure whether this is normal or not.

But I cannot find any option to configure on the fork or to solve the problem.

Welcome to the forums

You might just need to adjust the pre-load settings and or rebound adjustments.

You'll find most new forks, like a new bike, have a 'wear in period' where all the moving parts in the fork will 'loosen up'. I think this is normal, as i experienced it on 2 RockShox forks a while back, one was the Tora.

Hi blue_neon,

thanks a lot for your fast response! I hope that it is caused on the fact that my Dart2 is in use only since a few miles. So I hope that it will become better during the next time.

The adjustment switcher appears to be very firm (maybe beacause I did not turn it since I drove the first time) and I need a little bit power to turn it around. But I'll try to solve the problem by turning the switcher.

Thank you
