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!
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.
