Looks interesting but app only available for I crap and not DROID?
I had quite a few issues setting my ctd bv shock up.... Was never happy with it out of the box. The CTD lever seemed to do nothing..and the platform part of compression damping was next to useless.
Fwiw this was on my spesh camber which has a pretty resilient suspension design to bob but not direct acting on shock like single pivot.
Anyway, unlike the older rp23, the stock shock is supplied in a med /med tune with the boost valve factory set at something like 175psi.
I explained my issues to the guys I bought my shock from (tf tuned) and as my shock had gone back once before (for a lever sticking issue) they offered to push tune for me for my riding style and leverage ratio of frame..... All I can say is the difference is like night and day.... (this was done foc so I am not biased in my opinions having not spent any money he he)
They took out the BV and replaced with a custom shim stack to stiffen up the initial part of compression.... The shock now feels amazing.... The platform is excellent on the climb mode and I virtually get no pedal bob stomping out of the saddle. On the trail mode, the three settings actually make a difference now and if I am going downhill, the descent mode softens everything up.
I found the key to getting the right pressure for me was to ignore sag.... Ride a hard trail and you want to aim to pretty much use all the travel with a few mm in reserve (assuming you have not hit anything too hard!)
I can honestly say I was very sceptical as to the benefits of custom tuning a shock as to whether I would really notice a difference..... But I guess with so many different frame sizes and suspension linkage design, the stock shock tune is never going to cover everything.
Oh and just a quick thanks to tf tuned again - brilliant service as always.
They sent my BV valve back to look at as I was interested in how it works.... Here are some pics:
