Have found a manual, but it doesn't tell me what weight oil to use in the lowers, just the volume. Also, makes no mention of anything like crush washers on a Rockshox fork on the bolts that hold the lowers on. How are they sealed to stop oil coming out here? Will prob just grab some Enduro seals from Shockcraft as Cyclesport aren't doing Manitou/Hayes anymore...

Anything higher grade than 15wt oil will do for semi bath oil, and 5wt in the damper. Dougal sells oil and grease for fork seals too I think.
There is an O-ring on the end of the damper shaft, and under the spring side nut.

MTB 10sp and road 10sp are not the same cable pull ratio though so it won't work with road shifters. Best you can probably do is an 11-32 cassette with one of the new medium cage road derailleurs.

It annoys me, I want to put a MTB clutch derailleur on my cross bike but I can't (like a short cage Zee or something) so I don't get chain slap and noise on mtb tracks. Come on Shimano, clutch road derailleur for CX plz.

so any 9 speed long cage MTB derailleur with appropriate capacity will work? - presumably they don't come clutched so I dont get to avoid the slap . . .

Right, but the clutched ones can be made to work. I've been using a 675 9 spd for a year or so.

So you're saying that SRAM 9 speed ratios are the same as Shimano 10 speed road?

No, shimano 770 shifter. I moved the cable towards the pivot 17mm in the stop and ascertained the lever position, first using the shotgun method and then needle nose vice grips, cut and shut the steel arm and lopped off the superfluous stop.

Whenever I install new pads or rotors I've been unable to eliminate rubbing against the rotor, it's always been very slight and not a big impact on the wheel spinning.

I've now notice that the leading edge of pads has worn an angle in the lower corner and the wheel spins freely. Is this normal or even normal with Elixirs?
