New fork shakedown ride #3

125 top and bottom to start. Not quite as compliant on the small stuff as I'd like so I let a pshhht of air out of the top and the fork started acting rather nice. Enough travel on the small stuff and not too much once I was headed downhill.


  1. Fact.

    That is a PMBAR checkpoint.


    I recognize those three rocks and that stick.


  2. Hey Eric, methinks you're not supposed to run more negative than positive air in a RockShox. Don't go by their on-fork recommendations; best bet is to gear up, check sag at about 20% and run negative (bottom) about 5psi lower than positive (top). At least that's what all my old coworkers at SRAM say.
