I've got some Pace RC35 MXC or MXCD that are sagging quite a lot. The elastomers look in good condition with not a couple of them split. So I guess the problem is some of them are missing.
Does anyone have a picture of what the elastomer stack should look like?

Thanks.

You could just be too heavy for the elastomers - no offence intended but if they are soft or medium and are my weight (12.5 stone), you'll need hard ones. No way to tell as they are all clear.

They sagg without me on the bike!
I've just taken them apart again and some of the elastomers are quite bad.
I think there must still be some missing though as the shafts seem much longer than the elastomer stack.

Yup, some of them there elastomers are squished.

I think Tim was working on a spring conversion or indeed has one, has your fork got the damping cartridge as this may be the way to go.

No, there's no damping afaik.
I'll probably just sell them, as I've realised how many forks I have!

Thanks.
