Forks in cold weather
Do most forks basically stop working in cold weather?
I'm having that problem with mine (RST), and I wondered if it's normal. The weather isn't really *that* cold... Maybe low-50's, high-40's when the problem occurs.
For instance, I did about a 2.5 foot drop last evening, and the fork barely moved 10 mm or so. It was travelling fine earlier, when it was warm. No adjustements made, nothing.
Should I upgrade the fork (or the bike?
)? Or, is it possibly a defective fork (I'd probably rather try to get my money back, and upgrade than get it replaced...)
