Does anybody have any experience with this? I've got a 2001 Trek 4500 that I retrofitted with an upgraded Rock Shox Duck XC fork about four years ago. I've noticed the right 'tube' leaking oil for the past two years. The bike shop says it'* fine and quite normal. However, when I pull up on my handlebars to jump onto a curb, etc. the fork will "unload" completely before bringing the wheel off of the ground with it. A nice 'thud' occurs when the fork hits the stops before lifting the wheel. This is not "fine" or "quite normal!!!" It may be cheaper to just buy a new fork over sending this one off for a rebuild.
I guess I would call it 'topping out' whereas when it completely compresses I would call that 'bottoming out' if that helps you understand things.
