- Bobbing rear fox shock when climbing steep hills out of the saddle
yes when you put pressure on a shock it compresses and standing up puts more pressure on it.
It is usually less than you think it is
I almost never get out the saddle on my Orange 5 as it pointless
We all notice this so either get a bike designed to avoid this – DW , faux bar etc or dont stand upPosted 4 years agobuzz-lightyearMember
It probably has a compression damping lever. Flick it into pro pedal mode and it will reduce the wallowyness. Could shove a bit more air in to increase spring rate. Make one change at a time and small amounts. You won’t eliminate it entirely even on a vpp Dw or maestro designed bike.Posted 4 years ago
I find that if I get out of the saddle when climbing a steep climb with a low cadence I can feel the rear Fox RP23 shock bobbing far too much. When it bobs I know that I am wasting energy with each peddle stroke.
I think it is due to the fact that when climbing out of the saddle on the mtb I find it harder to peddle smooth circles like you can when seated. As a result I become a bit of a stomper.
Anyone else notice the bobbing when climbing out of the saddle?Posted 4 years ago
