Re: Suspension 101
First, you need to set your sag, shoot for 35mm up front and 30mm out back.
Then, set your rebound. You want the bike to spring back up as fast as possible without overshooting or bouncing. And make sure the bike springs back up evenly front and rear.
Finally, set your compression. Set the adjuster to the middle of the adjustment range, and go for a ride. Then, adjust it one click at a time either harder or softer depending on how it feels.
