Close to 14 stone all up in riding gear.
Trying to set up the new build – Trance 27.5 and inflate to 50,100 & 150lb and cycle the shock a couple of times at each stage then the pump/me struggle to get past 220lb.
Took the bike for quick spin around the block and rear shock is still too soft, so thinking it’ll need 240ish?
Does that much pressure sound right for this shock?
I’ve only used RP3/23s before and the pressure would be much lower than that.
Which mode are you in. On mine, I find open is pretty much useless, there’s just no support unless I fill it with air and then it’s like a pogo stick on jumps.
Mine is max 275 psi, tend to run it about 220 I’m a similar weight. Always in the middle trail mode. 2 volume reducers in the can. Does depend a lot on the frame and the tune of the shock everybody’s settings will differ.
Cheers for the advice on settings and tokens, as I said it’s a new to me frame.
Think it was on the open setting and seemed to sag to 40% or more so I’ll try the middle setting and take it from there.
