Yeah, the drcv gave me some headaches setting mine, as I'd think it was fine, and then I'd ride it and it would open and would then be too soft. I just hop on it and jump on the shock a bit to open the valve and then recheck it all.
On the DRCV - don't forget to tighten air pump until pressure shows, then turn additional 1/4 to 1/2 to open DRCV to read.
Trek website has good starting info, but threads indicate that these suggested pressures are a little high for most riders. - many posts
