First we had a “check your stem bolts”
Then we had a “check your thru-axles”
Now we have a “check your suspension settings” and I’m the latest to wear the dunce cap.
I raced for the entire first half of the season with the wrong settings
When I got my suspension serviced earlier in the year, they had reset a few different things that I neglected to check, so I just kept adjusting rebound and air pressure.
Turns out that I was running almost 40psi less than what is recommended and because the low-speed compression was dialed all the way up in “Open”, I didn’t realize until today. So instead of 30% sag, I was running more like 50%.
The bike felt dead and I couldn’t figure out why
