Brain Dead

Being a home mechanic has its ups and downs. I recently went riding in the snow and noticed my fork wasn't working properly. The problem was that the rebound adjustment knob was sticking on my RockShox SID/Brain suspension fork. So I unscrewed the knob and tried to manually turn the valve. Since it's made from aluminum I accidentally applied too much torque and bent it. Doh! It's now being sent back to RockShox for further repair. No mountain biking for me. Lesson learned. Great suspension fork, otherwise.
