Sorry Phil, you are of course absolutely right, Maurice did indeed report a deterioration, though he didn’t tell us over how long a period this had occurred.

As Stan points out, if the fork spindle adjustment is too tight this would make the ride quality worse – but I would expect it also to have a negative effect on the handling, and as Maurice tells us that it is superb, this is unlikely to be the cause of the harsh ride.

I still think that teles generally deliver a smoother ride over rough roads.
