When you are dialed

Recommended Posts

For slow rock crawl rides I've been experimenting with setting my fork up extra soft, slow rebound, and extremely progressive.  It makes the beginning of the travel very supple so it's easier to shove the wheel over that last obstacle at the end of a tough climb when you're out of momentum and position.

I haven't got my spider mountain settings dialed yet, but I'm gravitating towards higher PSI and much less progressive, still with pretty slow rebound.

My rear shock setup is less refined.  PSI to set sag to exactly what Yeti recommends, curb test for rebound (erring on the slow side) and I 3D printed a bunch of spacers to experiment with until I was routinely using most of the travel.  All compression damping always wide open.

So pretty much setting it up for all the trails here😁

Get it up in the travel for all the rocks but, keep it progressive enough to prevent the fork from packing up and flinging you OTB when you ram something square going 2mph.

I like a very slow rebound (lots of rebound damping). When I go over stuff I dont like to bounce. I can never remember but I think it means 2-3 clicks away from turtle.

Slower rebound has improved my confidence going down hill on the bigger stuff, but it totally messed up my timing when going up ledges.  I guess I was using that fast rebound to help prop me up.
