I run 3 clicks of Low Speed on the DPX2 and seems to be pretty good all around, Fully open doesnt always mean better performance. Bike actually stays out of holes more when you add a little support.Need some advice. 195lbs geared. Story goes: Was running through the travel on this thing quite a bit on aggressive XC trails but just blew right through it on any downhill chunk. Was running 30% sag at 260 psi. Wanted to try another shock (TTX or Super deluxe air) but couldn't find one. Went with the Cascade link and am running at 280psi standard spacer DPX2 no low speed compression(exactly 15mm at the shock) . Now bike for me uses its travel pretty appropriately. Only one bottom out in several rides on a massive compression. So happy there. Only issue is that mashing pedals out of the saddle the bike now bobs like crazy. I don't remember it doing that with standard link. Bobs pretty aggressively even with low speed compression fully closed. I don't race so I suppose I can live with it. Still bothering me though. But options seem limited. Could run higher pressure and not worry about small bump compliance, could try a different shock w/ the standard link , could try a different shock with this link. Anyone on the cascade that is running an air shock who figured this one out?
I also find with this bike its pretty sensitive to air pressure, 5 psi extra can make it feel much better while climbing and or downhill too. I am running 14-15mm of sag and it seems great.
