I got a KOM once, it was on the DFW Airport outer service road, I was solo, and had the benefit of a 20 mph tailwind. But when I looked closer, I only tied the KOM, and the guy I shared it with is...

You haven't said what you don't like about the current fork, or what you're trying to achieve with the new fork.

Speeding up the rebound makes shocks bouncy, like a pogo stick. Shocks will feel...
