again, Thank You !
Your assessments of this problem were basically spot on .... Even though I brought my forks to them initially, my mech came by on Sunday, checked my bike, saw that something wasn't right and said he would take it back to his shop, take it apart, and fix it ... which he did ! (no charge)
... again, symptoms were hard forks, and rebound screw limited to seven clicks (when it was 18 or before) .... Turns out, you must tighten (loosen ? ... not sure which way i heard) the rebound damping screw fully before adjusting the lock nut on the rebound damping rod. After the mech did this, forks are fine, eighteen clicks of rebound damping adjustment, and no more stiff forks ... i will re-check all torques, and take her for a test ride soon.
