White Bros "JUDD" and "HARDBODIES" RULE!!!!

Post by willi4 » Fri, 04 Oct 1996 04:00:00


Just had to say that I dumped a wad of cash on the full setup for my
Judy SL.  The stock elastomers gave me a total of 1" of travel and were
always packing up on stutter bumps regardless of the position of the
damping cart.  

Today I got the springs and cart, installed.  Holy Bejeeser!  They are
awesome.  I upgraded the travel to 75mm from the stock and now with the
standard spring (silver) I get 2.5" of travel on the biggest hits, and
the front end became smooth as silk!!  the only time I knew I had gone
over something was when I felt it through the solid rear end of my Klein
Adroit.  Perfect combo, solid power transfer in the rear, and utterly
awesome control in the front!  And there is a HUGE amount of adjustment.

This was far and above the best investment in the bike, and I just had
to share it with everyone,

Geoff

Sounds like your elastomers were knackered. They wear out, y'know.

Er, 75mm is 3", so if you're only getting 2.5" (which is what a stock SL
gives you) then there's something awry somewhere...

Later,

Mike.

They were brand NEW!  I thought this was just something that just the
one fork.  Traded forks with someone else and bingo the elastomers were
still yuck.

Hold on here.  I assume that since I don't feel the fork bottoming out I
am not hitting the full 3".  There is a theoretical limit to the travel
where what ever spring is being used compresses to the point where it
takes such a huge hit that the last little bit is hardly ever used.  I
should modify the above statement to say that Under Normal hits I use
almost all of the travel (2.5") and never (it seems) does the travel
seem excessive, which translates into sweet travel, and a little reserve
that is used under HUGE hits (last 0.5").
