idm im not sure but i thought you set your sag according to your weight
Are you saying that the preload adjustment is basically useless on the dart?scottzg said:On a more sophisticated fork, a little bit of preload, combined with rebound and compression adjustments, plus the right spring, can be a benefit. It's included on the dart because it's cheap and they can advertise another 'feature.'
yes. Not completely useless, but basically useless. It's no mistake that RS doesn't bother with preload adjustment on their higher end coil forks. I also think that the rebound adjustment is too coarse to be useful.Robmc7759 said:Are you saying that the preload adjustment is basically useless on the dart?
i like to be a little conservative when it comes to sag settings, as we are not in a truly high-speed application, a 25mm sag in an 80mm or even a 100mm fork will do no more than eat up usable positive travel. use 25mm only if you feel you're not using the fork's full travel. say your ziptie is 10mm below the full travel mark after a lap at your local favorite.ACSN said:I am looking for some help on setting sag on a fork. I have the Rockshox Dart 3 and read the manual on using a zip tie and determining the amount of sag. It sounds easy enough. The Rockshox manual says recommended is 15mm - 25mm.
Do I set it to the low end at 15mm or at 25mm or somewhere in between? How does it affect the ride based on easy or rougher trails?
