Hi guys/girls,

Bit of a long shot and I appreciate suspension is crazy subjective, but I'm really struggling with set up on my 150 and thought I would send a message to see if anyone had any suggestions/experience. Apologies if this isn't the right forum but can't find much else.

I have followed the basic/initial set up on the site and dialed in shock sag etc etc, but initially found the bike to feel really unbalanced. Predominantly sitting very far into its rear travel during cornering, making it really difficult to turn the bike and/or hold a line through a corner or camber. Adding compression did help this, but then made the rear feel really choked and and overall feeling of poor grip. Dropping sag down to 18mm (instead of 20mm) gave a similar outcome.

Adding volume reducers and reverting to 19/20mm sag has really helped with the balance and ability to turn the bike. However, with compression set at 7 and 10 (lsc/hsc from open) and 4 spacers I am bottoming really frequently, even off square edged hits and trail compressions, not just classic drops. Adding comp returned the choked/kicky feel. Rode today and went to 5 tokens, and 18mm sag. This helped the bottoming, but made it kick really hard on takeoffs, presumably because of the 'pogo' effect of lots of ramp up, and me not being that heavy. Rebound is already on the neutral/slower side, so I don't believe it's a rebound setting issue.

For reference I am 73kg kitted, and would class myself as a reasonable level/aggressive rider (top 10% in open men at races, occasional podium (cringing at how this sounds but don't know how else to say)). Sorry for such a long winded message and I appreciate there are so many variables here it maybe unable to help, it's just that I'm tearing my hair out with it as I know the bike is such a great bit of kit, but I just cannot get it to work for me and have spent the last 2 months changing things pretty much every ride.

Even if there is someone who is similar weight an ability who would be open to sharing their settings that would be incredibly helpful.

Maybe reply direct to me to avoid clogging up this forum with my whinging.

From the description you sound like your running a fox dhx2? I wouldn't want to be running comp either to keep it plush.
I find the problem with modern shox is the trend towards high volume negative chambers with equalising detents at around 33% travel position. This gives the plush high traction, ground hugging ride. But for me blows through the initial travel far too easily at the spring rate I feel comfortable at deeper into the stroke.
I solved this when I was running a float x evol by putting a LV can on instead. Not sure what low volume options are available for dhx2 negative chambers.

Bought used right here on PB!


XX1 drivetrain

Enve 735 carbon wheels

Enve bar and stem

Fox 36 fork @ 160mm

Magura MT7 brakes

Fox Kashima dropper

Maxxis tires

i9 hubs

And my own upgrades: matching grips and water bottle, plus replacing the fancy saddle with the cushy, cheap one from my Fuji to accommodate my bony butt Wink

Considering to reduce the fork to 150mm to match the standard SB130 build. So far so good!
