Re: Suspension setup

How do you have yours setup?

My bike has about 14k miles on it and I don't know if the seals or fluid have ever been replaced. I think it's about that time, but till then....what's your setup?

I am about 190-200lbs., I have 2 full turns from hard on the rebound, compression the same, 3 lines showing at the top (I doubt this makes any sense to suspension guys since I don't know much about it anyway).

Any ideas? Insight?

Re: Suspension setup

From the abtech archive:
For suspension settings at 190 lbs (unsuited???), I would crank the front preload in all the way, and set both compression and rebound to 1.5 turns out from full tight (clockwise to the stops and then back out 1.5 turns).

I would then take out all of the rear preload except 1 click, and set both the compression and rebound to 1.75 turns in from fully open (CCW all the way to the stops and then CW 1.75 turns).

This should be a decent starting point.
