I’m 210lbs. 2021 stock tune x2 works great with stock link and has more midstroke support for me than dpx2. I had the .86 spacer in the dpx2 and have 3 spacers in x2, but can probably take one out. X2 is harder to bottom even with compression fully open.Specialized recommends 200psi for your weight. I have found those numbers to be high, but the Cascade requires and additional 10% due to the leverage ratio. I was still under specialized's recommended pressure at 28% on the cascade. In any case, as others have mentioned the bike is very sensitive to sag and letting out just a few psi can make a surprising transition. I would drop some air until if felt good and then use LSC and LSR to tune pedaling feel and HSC for big hits (if needed). I doubt most people will use the last 5mm of shock travel on the cascade running the correct sag so they should probably call it 148mm travel. Don't get me wrong, it does feel better on the small bump and big hits as well, they just overdid the progression a bit for my taste (given the stock tune on the DPX2).
I was really looking forward to the X2 arriving tomorrow until these comments haha. Are you guys running the aftermarket tune on the X2 and are they 2021 shocks?
