How plush are your bikes? When you lift up the rear and drop it, does it sit there nicely? or does it bounce? or sit's there but pedals and stuff rattle???
what do you mean by spiky??? i just need to find a way to make the shock really really plush... i only weigh 120lbs when geared...blender said:yes. get a DHX 5.0
some people think that it's a bit spiky.. but after some tweakage i love the way mine performs, super plush.
i've already got all of that dialed in already and it's still not plush... was thinking of getting one of those Swinger 6 Ways on Santacruz website... how do they fair agains the DHX 5.0 and the Marzocchi Roco TST R? Which ones are plusher?blender said:if you are that light make sure that you have correct spring for your weight on the shock, make sure your preload and sag are set correctly. If it's an air chamber assisted shock, make sure that your air pressure isn't too high and isn't affecting your compression damping. Check your rebound as well...
after setting all these up correctly you should get maximum plushness out of your shock.
yeah... thats makes sense... thanx for the suggestion. Could you post on why a fourbar is more sensitive??? I had the impression that a Single Pivot would be more sensitive...heavyg said:Just a suggestion, but I think you might get better/ more valuable response if you posted this again under a title something like "Lightweight riders - 120 pounds- plush shock?"
I know I and many others that might check out this thread will be no help at all, being fat sons of bit%$&s...
One quick two cents that might be of some use- I found my 6" SP to not be so plush on the small stuff due to the "lockout" effect of pedaling force. You may want to try a horst or one of the four bar linkage bikes to start with a more "active" suspension system at your weight?
