Nice Dolly Parton forks :D

sorry, I thought they said Jolene :lol: :lol: :lol:


Just one thing, have you checked your Critical Measurement as found here... http://idriders.com/proflex/resources/98crosslink_manual.pdf

It looks like the forks are already compressed at a standstill?

Since the pivot points of our linkage forks must be in a fixed position to allow the fork to function properly, the Upper Link Mount needs to be
placed in a specific position on the steerer tube.

I gave him the measurements but they do loo a little bit squashed...may be an idea to swap the spacer and put it under the top clamp....but if it is 163mm between the crown race and the lower edge of the top clamp they must be right :?

2.5mm spacer would do but I wouldnt worry about 5mm....... :? I was running mine at about 161...and then at 167 by swapping spacers about and didnt have a problem either way :lol:

just measure between the top of your tyre and the bottom of the steerer and make sure it is more than the travel thats all 8)
