I had a little tumble on a jump on saturday, and like a bad workman, i'm laying the blame on my RP23 air shock
I felt the rear kick when i left the lip and witnesses saw back end of the bike do the same. Never had a bike do that before (that didn't have an engine) and i'm a little apprehensive about doing it again. I'm also slowly beginning to realise i'm a bit old to be a test pilot so would appreciate some advice please.
Will turning the rebound down a few clicks prevent this type of thing happening again. Or is there some other setting that might help? THe little blue 3 position dial on the blue lever was set a 1 if that helps. I'm not used to air cans and not sure if this is the kind of thing that they do (unlikely) or if it was suspension ignorance that caused the crash (likely). I've done a fair bit of jumping over the years and have hit this jump several times without incident - so i don't think it's a rider error issue.
Just in case you missed it, have a giggle on me
