I’m 14.5st kitted up and run 170psi which works best for me. I did run as low as 150psi for a while but got fed up of clipping pedals when climbing. The bike does sit quite far into it’s travel and pedal clips are common but I’ve only ever once bottom it out after a flat landing from a jump.Posted 8 years ago
260psi is crazy, sounds like somethings up with your shock.
It’s not actually bottoming, I just get through the travel very easily. It’s been like that since new, and I’m convinced it’s my weight rather than anything else. It’s fine going downhill, and I’m usually going too slow uphill for it to be a bother, it’s pedally bits with roots or dips in quick succession where I can’t keep up the momentum that gets it.
Reading that, I’m wondering if the rebounds a bit slow and thats where I’m getting caught out 😕Posted 8 years agoBadgerpooMember
When I had mine would tend to use alot of the travel, but I think that was what made it ride so well. The trade off of this nice and low riding position is pedal strikes unfortunatley. I compounded it by having wide flatties, but meh you get over it. If you have a bike that rides high enough to avoid pedal strikes it feels too tall (Like the Marin Quad Links in my experience).Posted 8 years ago
