Coils on Tracer's…..
Hi – just wondered if there are any Tracer VP owners that can comment; I’ve recently added a Pushed Van R to my Tracer an am experiencing (in this dry weather) near hardtail chatter/rattle/bumps over small gravel/stones/pebbles type single track.
The shock is great elsewhere giving me 90% travel through general singletrack indicating its setup correctly.
It could be the spring preload – or is this common with VPP / Coil combination?

Swalsey – I’m assuming you mean “less” preload – issue with that is I’m only about .5 turn from contact with the spring.
Rebound is already quite slow giving a really comfortable, controlling feel on anything else (I’d probably have to bunny hop to get the wheel disconnect from the ground its that good).
Thats why I wondered whether its was a symptom of the VPP – but I dont remeber feeling is on my previous 5.5 with air…..Posted 6 years agoDinoMember
Too much crompression tune??Posted 6 years ago
Try it in 6 inch mode as the rear wheel will have a bit more leverage over the shock ( worth a shot as it’s quick and free) also the tracer has a higher leverage ratio than the blur lt if memory serves me correctly with a slight rise at the beginning of travel and falls away through the travel,
if ure only running 1/2 turn pre load it’s un likely to be spring more likely compression on the shock
Dino – I think you’re on to something. I’ve remembered now that whilst discussing the Push with TfT I did ask for “Trail firm”. with the limited adjustment on the Van R I’m guessing they would have upped the compression tune as you say, which is why on bigger bumps/roots it opens up nicely.
Could be good news for racing though, if only it was several lbs lighter….. 🙂
Will give 6″ a go as you say, Cheers.Posted 6 years ago
