    i just bought my old one back for little to no money after not riding for 4 or 5 years and it needed some work. put a domain 302 on it and noticed that i can see the fork flex out a little while bouncing on it. I've never had a single crown long travel fork so i dont know if this is normal or not. didnt know if the anyone was riding a similar setup and had any issues. im not really a complete noob at this just havent been up to speed on things for a while. anyone have anything to say about it.

    domains are pretty stiff. i never noticed mine flexing while bouncing it.

    are you sure is the fork?

    not 100%. i just know i have a pretty steep angle on the steer tube and when bouncing and watching the front axle it looks as though its moving forward a little bit.

    are you sure there is no play in the headset?? i could also be there is some play in the lowers, or hub.
    domains are very stiff. i´d check that.
