I'll try that too. I am finding my ride pretty harsh. I'm a week away from having the time to really air this thing out. Tried some jumps last night and it lands them wonderfully. I found a little highway cut with some neat looking stair-step rocks I'm going to have to try. It's going to be fun until they run me off...iviguy said:I had really been resisting setting the sag on the rear of my 575 at 25% (.5 inch) because I thought I needed it to be more XCish or because I thought I needed to feel the trail more or something. Take your pick. In any case, having it set at only 20% sag, or less, makes this bike feel more like a shorter travel bike. In fact, you can't tell you have almost 6" of travel when it is too firm.
Last night I decided to set the sag at 25% and I also messed with the fork which I had a little too firm as well. It was like I was on a completely different bike. Where before I though this bike was soaking up the trail (which it really wasn't) now it really is. It wasn't all that plush with 20% sag and kind of felt like the ML I had demo'd before but I was really enjoying my ride last night.
So, the light went on with setup. 25% sag is about perfect and it brings back that "floating" feeling you get when the trail just disappears under you. :thumbsup:
