I was wondering if there are any people around that have the newest G3 Magic Link on their Cadabra. I read several times that for lighter people it's hard to get the desired amount of sag, and that the ride felt quite a bit stiffer compared to the G2 Magic Link.

I'm around 150lbs, but i'm not sure if upgrading would be a good plan.

Anyone can give me some advice?

Hi,

Yeah, I have the G3 air sprung unit on my Cadabra. In all honesty, I don't think rider weight comes into it... no matter what your weight it's a ***** to set up just right! I'm around 190lbs and it took a lot of fiddling to get the setup sorted. Lots of adjust-ride-adjust-ride on-trail dialling in. You really need to take a shock pump out on the trail with you and just persevere with it. It's not the easiest thing to get right but when you hit the sweet spot it really does pay dividends. If you're used to the G2 system then you should find it much better as the G3 is infinitely more adjustable.

I'd definitely recommend the upgrade, but be prepared for a lot of trial and error to set it up right.
