hi, I have a boardman mtb pro fs 2009 that I bought, regrettably, from halfords. On a whole I really like the bike however, the rear shock (surprisingly) has never been right. It feels rough through it's travel and is noisy, also it doesn't lock out and sits at around 10% sag even when off the bike. I returned it before as this 10% became 20% and then 40% during an xc ride in Wales. The shock was then sent away by halfords and returned a few weeks later. When I saw the shock again it was still 10% down on travel. I pointed this out to the assistant and he literally just shrugged it off. I left with my shock, not liking the idea of two more weeks without a bike hoping that this would improve after a ride. When refitted to the bike the shock was, and still is as bad as before. Does anyone know what could cause any of this? I'm sure this is not normal from a rockshox shock. Also does anyone know the eye to eye length of this shock? Cheers
no it dosent fully extend even when you pull it or pump extra pressure in :/ and on that ride i mentioned this got worse and it was 'locked down' at about 40% of the stroke, cheers for the reply

Does it fully expand off the frame, that is, is the frame forcing it to 10% sag at full rebound?
In that case I wonder if it's a custom set up with extra rebound stop added to set the fully rebounded length to match the frame. Does it change if you let all the air out and try and pull it apart?
