So, I took it to the shop. They did the same thing I did. When they do it, the forks are traveling. The shop owner showed me, and there was about 1" of travel when he pushed down on the front wheel. Albeit, when I do it, nothing happens. They are still extremely stiff.
I hope the front forks break in more than this. I'm riding over all the bumps and not feeling any compression/dampening yet; maybe it's my imagination. Still, they've only got a tiny amount of miles on them. It's not been more than a few weeks. They probably just need to be ridden more.
