Checking Fork Travel - Are you curious how much of your fork's travel you're using? It's good to know because if it's not very much, some fine-tuning could improve the ride. To see how much travel you're using, place a thin zip-tie around one inner leg on your fork. Make sure it's loose enough to not scratch the leg, yet tight enough to not slide down on its own. When you start your ride, push the zip tie all the way down against the seal. At the end of the ride, the amount the zip-tie has moved up indicates the amount of travel you're using.
