You can lose rebound knob.
Awesome fork for good money (if you look at other fork prices...) and easy settings. It will ride great if you do at least 1 oil changing per season (depends on how much you ride, of course). It has two very basic settings - compression and rebound and you honestly don't need anything else except racing on WC level and even there, some guys race RC forks. You can lose rebound knob if you hit some rocks or fall.. Just setup the fork and remove the knob, you don't need it there all the time once the fork is set-up.
