Suspension settings Kona Process 153 29

Fork (Durolux 36 RC2 29)
• 50 psi (29% sag)
• 9 clicks rebound (9/25)
• HSC - 2 (level 2/5)
• LSC - 4 clicks (5/17)

Rear Shock (Super Deluxe RCT)
• 110 psi (40% sag)
• 5 clicks rebound (5/10)
• LSC - 4 clicks (4/12)

Tire Pressure: 15 psi front; 18 psi rear

She rides great, so far. Not really a plow bike but can still be ridden fast. A bit too playful for my riding and my weight.

As soon as I get the right tools, I'll remove the volume spacers on both the fork and the shock to try to get a more linear feel.

Pics to follow.

I'm doing a similar set up for my CR 29er but im going to put a 170mm fork in to put the BB height up to counter the 27.5 in the rear, and then a +1 headset to counter that

I did the same. I am very happy with the results so far.

I'll post specs and photos later.
