RockShox Tech Pills – RS-1 Maxxle Ultimate and Brake Hose Set Up

Planning on picking up a new RS-1 to trick out your bike? Then you should definitely check out the latest Tech Pills from RockShox that are devoted to the new fork.

And how does this function differently than any other maxle?

@lgro, it was introduced with the Pike and is a little different in how it operates, but most importantly with the RS-1, if it’s not installed properly the uppers could contact the Maxxle lever and cause damage.

What a giant f&ck up!

The position that most people set a QR is the position that is going to cause catastrophic failure!!!!!!

@ J

The position he puts it in is the position your QR is supposed to go. That is, straight back. Oddly though, it is on the wrong side of the bike, like their forks.
