great stuff... will try the 60/60 pressure thing... still not clear on the first biyt of your answer though
Wind the blue compression adjust knob on the pop lock all the way out and take note of where the lever is when not in the lock out position. Start winding the blue compression adjust knob in and you will notice the lever moving towards the lock out position. All its doing is adjusting the end stop for the lever, because the closer the lever is to its fully locked out position the more low speed compression damping you will get.
the Floodgate adjuster thing controls how easily the forks will 'blow-out' off lock out, is that right?
Yes. You can have it as either a pretty-much-full lock out, or have it as just a bit stiffer with the lever pressed, or anywhere in between.
The flood gate is there so if the fork is locked out and you take a big hit, instead of the fork lock out feature just breaking the flood gate opens (like a blow off valve) and the fork absorbs the bump. The gold knob adjusts the flood gate so as Mike D said you can allow some fluid through and the lock out isn't as lock outy
