Please would you guys and gals have a look at the following and let me know what you think.
Ooh Sarah, the things you say!If you decide to slide the fork tubes up in the trees remember, just a little dab will do. Slide them a quarter inch or so and ride the bike, then slide a bit more if you need to. It doesn't take much to make a dramatic difference.
That's already a lot... I would just try 2mm more, at first.Seriously he said about 6.5mm is about right.
He was referring to the rear spring at that point. The rear spring has 5 pre-load settings I believe, maybe 6...The guy in the video says there is only two clicks one way from the "stock setting" so which way do you go ,up or down.
I'm some way from that weight so immediately adjusted shock pre-load to one from top.He was referring to the rear spring at that point. The rear spring has 5 pre-load settings I believe, maybe 6...
Standard it comes set in the middle, which as far as I can tell is the correct pre-load for a 50kg Asian teenager.
I'm 86kg and the very highest pre-load setting still doesn't really cut it and having the spring under so much tension, means it's even quicker to hit the crap part of the progressive spring.I'm some way from that weight so immediately adjusted shock pre-load to one from top.
TBH I'm a new rider so not sure what good suspension is meant to feel like - all positive comments about M Shock will probably mean I'll go down that route next year.
