I am 195 geared up and run a 550# spring. Just want to get a feel on what everybody else is doing out there with regards to what adjustments they run. Currently I am running the stock settings. I ride mostly in Santa Cruz and in Pacifica. Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks!

Hey AJ,
Try this, I also run a 550 spring.

From all the way open. Which would be counter-clockwise. Towards minus, ( - )

HSC= 2.5 turns in ( clockwise )
LSC = 23 clicks, you won't hear them, you will feel them. ( clockwise turns )

HSR= 1.5 turns in ( clockwise )
LSR= 16 clicks, again, you won't hear them, you'll feel them ( clockwise turns )

This tune was given to me from a guy, when every time I sat on his 951, it felt right, ( he rode the #1 prototype for months )
He also, to my knowledge, got the first CCDB that fit the 951.
And was the mule. I use it in the 8.5'' setting, and don't scrape pedals.
He told me it was his set-up for resisting big hits.
Just try it. And BTW, the spring rate does'nt seem to matter.
Let us know what you think, and enjoy your 951.
RTW.

Hi i am about 76 kg (167lb) and i was asking from CC what they suggest me
This is the email they send me :thumbsup:

Since the leverage ratio is contiuously decreasing (a progressive linkage) it has a natural tendency to resist bottom-out regardless of shock choice. Likewise, the higher leverage ratio at the beginning of stroke does require a higher spring rate than an average leverage ratio would seem to indicate to achieve a good sag value. Another thing to rememer is that when leverage ratio varies with travel, the sag at the wheel (axle) is different than the sag at the shock. We recommend ~27%-30% sag at the shock for 8“ mode, since this yields about 30%-35% at the wheel (axle). Also, there is nothing sacred about 8“ mode, it just seems to be the prefered setting for the two options. Try the 8.5“ mode too and see which one you like better.


Adjusters: All settings starting with all adjusters open all out counter clock wise.
HSR- 3 turns in from all out
LSR - 10 clicks from all out
HSC - 0.5 turns in from all out
LSC - 17 clicks in from all out
