I couldn't think of where to post this, but who knows more about a BOB than a cycle-tourist, right? Anyways... The fork on my BOB has a small amount of play. I tightened it to the point of no play once, but the turning of the fork was rather resistant, sort of indexed. And the play came back after a short ride anyways. Is this normal? Should I allow this small amount of play and have the fork turn smoothly or crank it down real good? Or is my bike trailer just jacked? I guess I'm not really familiar with the proper turning of a fork with bushings instead of bearings.
For the record, the manual that came with it just says "apply 6lbs torque to the locknut". I've never even seen a torque wrench, much less know someone who has one.
Also for the record, I don't have an LBS.
Any input would be verrrrry appreciated!
