- Tell me about suspension…
no because we all like different settings soem mates ride it soft. Some ride it hard, some like fast rebound, some alter it for the terrain
Play around with it by adjusting stuff on a known local short downhill loop aand set it how you like
I dont like it very soft personally so rarely if ever get full travelPosted 4 years ago
I’ve always run it with slower rebound on the back and the compression set right for my weight – although when speaking to a guy he was saying set the compression so it doesn’t compress when hitting the face of a jump. Then was told to run the rebound as fast as possible.
Anyone heard this?Posted 4 years agobuck53Subscriber
Don’t think there’s a hard and fast rule as it depends what characteristics you want to emphasise.
Personally I currently run my shock with slightly less sag than suggested as I climb a lot and want a good peddling platform. Forks run at slightly lower than recommended as they tend to struggle to hit last quarter or so of travel at the recommended pressure and fastest rebound for plenty of pop on the trail.That can make them harsh on very rough stony ground though.Posted 4 years ago
Ignoring difference between air and coil or different brands – what is the general rules for setting up suspension on a Full-sus?
I’ve set mine up and left it but from discussing it with some guys on a recent uplift day and then getting some tips from other riders it seems there is a lot of conflicting information out there.
Are there any common rules for getting the best from suspension?Posted 4 years agomr plowMember
After very basic sag setup i tend to tune suspension on feedback alone. I quick setup on the road/kerb test but this is always changed out on the trail. Ride the bike and think about the way it is reacting to the type of riding you do. Find the things you don’t like and work out how to tune these out of the setup.
An intersting one is a bike that bucks you. Most people go straight to slow rebound tuning when the initial problem may be too little spring or compression damping.
If you want to get the most out of it you have to put the time in. A third party comment regarding tuning amy be pretty useless most of the time.Posted 4 years ago
