I think another valid option should be "No" because it'll give you a perspective.
Yeah, that's what I was looking for, too.

What exactly is the difference between spiking and stacking?
Stacking I understand, too slow a rebound rate, fork doesnt come back fully before the next hit, whats spiking though?
From what I understand, spiking is caused by hydraulic lock out. ie. in my case the ssv wasn't allowing oil through the valve when it was supposed to thereby losing the advantage of the hydraulic compression.

My DJ1 spikes hardcore.
I was having the same problem with my DJ1. I have since found out that this has been a common issue due to an internal valving problem (the speed selector valve). They will warranty this issue for you. Highly suggested before your fork dies like mine did (cracked stanchion and cracked M-arch)- both caused by the ssv. Luckily, mine is still under warranty.

**I just wanted to say thanks to John Henry's. Those guys kick large amounts of ass, specifically JF ( the warrenty guru ). He may be French… but he does a damn good job. I wouldn't be riding if it wasn't for him.
What did you have warrantied and how long did it take to get an answer? JF is dealing with my fork that was just sent in for warranty issues.

It seems that the knobs or tread of the highroller tire have been tearing off and coming off in chunks rather than wearing down. Some people say this is to be expected but according to Maxxis it is not normal.
Have you guys found similar results with the 50a, 42a, or 40a durometer tires. I know the 60a does not have this problem.
If this is to be expected, where can I find a 24" tire like a Mich.;) **
I've got the exact same tire - had it on since mid July - seems to be wearing evenly and normally despite lots of riding on varied terrain.
The 8 Rinks physio guys are great. They have a modern and progressive approach to physio. They also deal with elite level athletes and understand how important a FULL recovery is. Not just, you'll be able to do most things, but yeah, lets make sure that we do everything so that you can rip again. They did a great job on my sister's knee. Try to see Alex McKechnie.
