Setting ProPedal RP2 and RP23
On the RP23, you have three levels of platform that you can choose from. You can gauge which platform level is best for you by using the following recommendations. Remember, the open mode (shown above) is identical regardless of which platform setting you choose as you are only changing the close mode:
Platform #1 – You ride a lot of rolling terrain that is fairly rough that doesn’t give you time to switch modes or you spend a lot of time on flatter, mildly rough single-track. This allows for more efficiency than the open mode but with good bump compliance. Riding in the #1 setting reduces the need to flip from open to close on rougher terrain.
Platform #2 – Our favorite setting for terrain that has more extended climbing and with longer descending which gives time to switch modes. The close mode also works well on flat, flowy single track that’s not very rough. In the close mode, it offers just enough bump absorption with outstanding efficiency.
Platform #3 – This setting is for optimum efficiency on a long, smoother climb and for fire road riding. It’s slightly firmer than #2 and is intended to be used as an on and off mode.

The Fox Float RP2 and RP23 both utilize a very sophisticated valve system that is highly tuned. Both shocks have an open and closed mode. The closed mode is tuned to allow use in real-world off road conditions, offering efficiency with some bump compliance. The close mode allows for a firm feeling rear suspension that still maintains traction and stability, and with some level of bump compliance. In the open mode it’s all about suspension performance and making the bumps disappear.

There’s a roundish gnurled dial (with 1, 2, 3 on it) sat on a blue lever.
Gently pull the dial up and turn it ’til the ‘2’ is lined up with the lever.
Flick the lever to the left (as you look at it)
You may need to gently ‘twiddle’ the dial ’til it clicks back down into position.Posted 9 years agoPeterPoddyMember
Ton, Red dial is REBOUND adjustment. As a big bloke you won’t need much rebound damping as your weight stops the shock moving too fast. So start off by turning it all the way to fast/minimum damping (Anticlockwise IIRC) If, when riding, the shock feels harsh, add one click at a time until it smooths out. If it feels wallowy you’ve gone too far, take a click off.
