- Air suspension for dummies
My first and only full sus was coil front and rear. It had 6 inches of commencal contact system suspension, which I really liked. That bike is now gone and i’m onto my second ever FS bike. This time FSR (Stumpy Evo) with Floats up front and Fox RP23-S out back.
I like things simple and my previous suspension was perfect for me. Just hop on and ride with only rebound to worry about. I’ve had air forks and could never get them to fell how i expected them to, so was wondering is there any hints/tricks to getting air shocks/forks set up. I’m around 15st in kit and don’t hang about on the way down and happy to have a downhill bias to the setup.Posted 5 years agoFROGLEEKMember
For Floats put in a round 10psi less than recommended
I run mine at 75 and I’m 16 stone giving me around 15-20% sag.
Rebound fairly fast at 7 clicks in
low speed compression 8 clicks in (holds up the front nicely in turns etc)
high speed compression 0-3 clicks in depedning on terrain and XC to DH
Rear cant advise apart from slower rebound than front as now running a ccdb air with infinate adjustmentsPosted 5 years ago
