      I have a bike im trying to sell but my fork is holding me back:
      it seems that its getting stuck with about two inches of travel left when i am climbing. i have to lift up on the bike for it to go back to normal travel. ive adjusted the air a few times. is this what an overhaul would fix? or is it messed??? any info would help!

      Does the fork seem to be losing air pressure? You mentioned adjusting the air. Take a pressure reading and go ride. When you notice the fork losing travel again take another pressure reading. Also check to see if the valve stem core is loose. They make a tool to remove (and tighten) them. A loose core can cause pressure loss. I try to look for the easy fix before I start to throw $$$ at the problem. If all else fails take it to your lbs.

      just road it around, although its not a trail no pressure loss. It also never did what i mentioned it did. i guess it only happens on long uphills??? weird!

      Check the rebound setting. I have seen this before when it is set all the way to the slowest rebound.
