My Boxxer sounds like it is bottoming out?when I preload to jump, along with a sound similar to the spring retracting. I took it to my local bike shop who stated they felt as if the compression was too soft. I noticed a small amount of oil on the stanchions so I will be doing lower end service soon. More than what would be normal. When dialing it harder, it didn’t change a thing. It doesn’t happen at lower speeds or smaller table tops, but larger jumps and faster speeds it throws me off. It doesn’t happen when landing. Only on the preload. Would this be telling me to go from a stock/medium spring to a firm? I’m about 220lb. Or any other leads? Thank you!
