I've finally done it. I've picked up a M size Wildcard. Now I'd like to know how you guys have your shocks set up. Height, weight and rear shock model would be a huge bonus, if you could list them.

Rider height: 180cm(5'11")
Frame size: M
Stem Length: 35mm
Rider weight: 51kg(112lbs)
Rider w gear: 54kg(119lbs)
Shock: Fox DHX air
Travel setting: 5"
Shock settings: 100psi main chamber, 125psi boost valve, bottom out: position 3, rebound: didn't count how much, but it's on the slow side.

If you guys could just copy, paste and fill in this info, it would be greatly appreciated.

Pics of the bike and components list will be up shortly. :D

Trail riding

Rider height: 6'1
Frame size: Large
Rider weight: 230
Rider w gear: 235
Shock: Manitou Evolver ISX-6
Travel setting: 5"
Shock settings: air can:160 psi, reservoir:150psi, bottom out:position:3, high&low speed adjusters: wide open, rebound:6-7 clicks turned in

With these settings I get 25% sag and rarely bottom out

DJ's

I ramp everything up with psi in both chamber 200psi, bottom out: position 4, high/low: all on

I find in these settings it performs closer to a hardtail and gives really good pop on steep bmx style dj's. Not concerned with any small bump compiance with these settings.

You will need to keep in mind that the Evolver requires less air pressure than the DHX and they perform very different so I'm not sure how much this will help.

Just to pick this up again:
I have bought a Manitou Evolver ISX-4 Airshock (almost new condition) for a great Deal from a Rider on the german IBC-News-Forum. As this is my very first experience on Air-suspension I need some advice on tuning.
Btw, is there a Database on the Banshee-Blog which I may have overlooked?

Rider height: 184 cm
Frame size: Medium
Stem Length: 50 mm
Rider weight: 84 - 87 kg
Rider w gear: 87 - 90 kg fully geared

Travel setting: Mostly 5"
Shock settings: ???
Travel setting: 6,5"
Shock settings: ???

Any help would be highly appreciated.
