Anyone know what the proper seal/oil service is for the AL50 fox 36? I'm trying to figure out what this fork is exactly on fox's service chart.

I did this, you get a chart for all 2018 Fox 36 forks. There's multiple fox Float styles, and multiple damper styles the Fit, and the Grip, and oil amounts vary between them all. The fork that comes with the Alloy 50 is called the 'Fit Grip', so... that's confusing.

Has anyone serviced theirs yet?

its a 36 which is more basic than the fit4 grip but most people tend to prefere the standard grip, hence why they made grip 2

the 36 table shows, use the teflon one for grip i think

Thanks for the info!

Does anyone know if either the fork or the shock come pre-installed with any volume spacers on the Alloy 50?

I have a carbon 50 and that came with one installed in the fork. I think I have 3 in there now.

But as mentioned, the code on the Fox site should tell you all.

So I upgraded my drivetrain. It was a bit of an impulse buy (an expensive one), but i'm glad I did. Its utterly flawless and that big old 50T takes the edge off some of the climbs!

HAHA, cheers buddy.

I wouldn't mind the reverb to go with it, but that will have to wait!

I keep thinking I want to change this bike, maybe get a 29er..... until I come back to reality and realise I still love this bike and it rips! Plus I don't really wanna go 29, just the media trying to brain wash me! haha.

I can relate to this ^^
I normally try to move my bikes on after around 2 years of riding them. Mainly to keep up with technology and spec etc
But I’m still absolutely loving the altitude. I’ve put a few new parts and upgrades on it but overall its still a playful beast that I can literally throw anything at it.
If anyone is reading this considering making the purchase on 2019/2020 altitudes I can recommend ????

yeah, I hear you. I sometimes get into my head I want a new bike, so I fall out of love with my current one, but no matter what I see or lust after, I still come back to the altitude and it puts a smile on my face!

On a different subject..... if I change my ride 9 settings into the slackest, will I need to adjust my suspension tune at all? I have a basic level of bike setup knowledge, but cant work out if my current tune will need tweeking if changing the ride 9.

I only want to slack it out for my trip to Madeira in a few weeks.

i always run mine in slackest as it is a straight plower! i think i had to take out a couple of psi just because theres a lot more ramp up and progression with the slackest, i normally find 25-30% sag works mint
