- Change in shock position / leverage ratio
Usually with springs, about 4 turns of preload are recommended for setting sag. If you still havn’t got your sag right within that range, then a different spring rate is required. It may be worth checking your shock manufacturers web site just to confirm. TF Tuned site has a spring calculator, which is very halpfull. 😉Posted 6 years agoKryton57Subscriber
OK, so I’ve change from air to coil on a bike with adjustable travel (by repositioning the lower shock bolt).
I under stand the concept of the resulting change of leverage ratio. BUT when I had an air shock I just added more air (as is the recomendation)to help with the sag/feel at the longer setting.
Want I want to know is, now that I have the coil I understand I can use the preload adjuster but with the difference in ratio bugger up the spring? After all in the air shock I am adding what is effectively a harder spring by adding air – not the case with the coil preload though is it?
