Interesting, first time I've heard of such.

Fancy that, a first gen product having some niggles, that's absolutely unheard of :o
The good thing is, Rockshox/Sram warranty/service/tech support in NZ is fucking awesome

I just sent some away on Tuesday, first set I've had with any issues though. Not sure what's up with them exactly yet, something in the rebound damper

what started out as a hate thread candidate got fun,
I lost the non-drive side crankarm cap off my rotor 3d cranks, fuck knows where it went, on a roadside somewhere in the middle of nowhere perhaps?

however I fired up teh lathe at work, a bit of thread cutting and milling, was able to make a new one, oddly easier to mill out a shimano style tool interface than to broach out an allen key socket though. so now I have a shimano-rotor hybrid thing going on.

either way, I get to ride my bike again :thumbsup:

Nice stuff slidecontrol. How did you hold it while milling?
I have access to a cnc mill and CADCAM package.

we have a little mill/drill at work and a small chuck with a protractor ring on a dividing head. I deliberately left the head part of the bolt thick to allow me to clamp it in the chuck.

I thought so, bit of a bugger with those little parts isn't it? My day job is mainly running a cnc lathe, 560swing 2m between centers. Can also run all our manual machines, 4 lathes, mill, floor borer. Am learning the cnc mill, but find it easier to program using the cadcam package.

Hehe, that was the idea. Just messing about with cadcam. Wasnt finished to any degree of smoothness.
