Got myself one of these bargin 2009 RP23 shocks from Merlin for the new Nicolai Helius CC. I spoke to Simon at Nicolai UK and he said the frame worked best with a medium tune and confirmed these 200/50 shocks were the right size for the frame. I ordered the 'standard' shock from Merlin which I assumed related to being medium (being a very untechnical girl!) as there was nothing on the website which mentioned the tuning. However, when I have got it, it has on the shock two stickers which I would think mean high compression tune/low rebound tune. Is this standard? Will it matter? I assume this is not a medium tune?! I could send it to be tuned (I am about 73 kg rider weight) but if I was going to do that, I should have probably just bought at 2011 model at the correct tuning.
Want to make sure this is right before I build the bike up at the weekend, while I can still send it back.
Any advice most welcome!
