I've actually found more traction running more sag as well. I think it depends on the geo and the kinematics of the bike. I think very progressive frames benefit from running more than typical sag.

Hi all! I installed the Megneg on my meta Tr and now it’s much better but now I can’t open the negative air chamber to try to add or remove some bands. Obviously I deflated the shock and removed the big O ring…
Can someone help me?

as you deflate it, stop a couple times to cycle the shock thru its travel to equalize the chambers

your negative chamber is full of air if you deflated the shock without cycling it

Anyone have any experience with the megneg for the deluxe ultimate on a transition spur. Just ordered the deluxe to replace the sidluxe on my spur and I have no idea what setup to run with the new shock. I’m 170lbs and mainly ride chunky steep stuff if that helps at all. Thanks

Not experience with the Spur, but I found RS's recomendations for megneg tuning pretty good, in terms of where to start. If I recall, they recommend using 1-2 fewer positive spacers then what you were using before, adding 1-2 negative spacers, and then setting the pressure to your normal psi + 20%. I had to make only minimal changes after that, following a few more test rides.

For my V3 SC Bronson, I run about the plus twenty percent psi, zero negative bands, and two positive spacers (I had 2.5 before). On this bike, the suspension design itself is characterized as pretty linear, if that helps.

I have stumbled upon this thread after trying to figure out the best way to set up my SC 5010v3 it looks like the leverage curve is considered overall slightly regressive up until
30mm around the sag point and then becomes progressive before finally becoming linear in the last 5mm or so.

Before getting the meg meg I was running on a super deluxe ultimate 3 spacers at 180 psi to get 30% sag (weigh 185-190) it felt ok but on high speed hits it got harsh. I moved to 2 spacers and it felt better but was bottoming out and missing the support I had. I am now running the megneg at 3 negative bands with one positive spacer and it feels pretty decent but trying to figure out the best way to get it close to the original can with 2 spacers feeling but with bottom out resistance and support? Anyone had experience or tried this on a SC 5010v3? I have looked everywhere and cannot find anyone else that has used one. Appreciate any feedback you can provide as this is definitely something I wanna figure out.

I don't have experience with setting up the MegNeg on a 5010, but I would consider removing negative bands. This will definitely add more midstroke support. Then start adding positive tolkiens until you only bottom out about once or twice on your chunkiest rides/biggest hits.

When you say "support" I am assuming you mean midstroke. If the issue is only in the last third or quarter of the travel, then it is strictly a positive token issue.

Hi,

Has anyone tried a MegNeg on a Canyon Sender frame?

I have a Sender CFR from 2021. It came with a Super Deluxe Ultimate as a standard equipment. There’s nothing wrong with the shock, however, I’m really looking to upgrade the feel of the rear end a bit (especially the sensitivity).
Going to a coil shock will definitely be the best solution (and something I want to do in the future for sure) but if putting a MegNeg air can on my current shock will provide some benefits and will be an upgrade over stock, I would definitely go that way for now as it will be way more cost effective.
What I'm looking at is mostly the shock to be more supple of the top and to have just a tad bit more mid-stroke support. I currently have 2 positive tokens inside it and the bottom out support is perfect for me at the moment.

I know that the new Sender has a pretty progressive leverage ratio - something around 28% I think, so I’m not really sure the MegNeg will be the best way to go in that situation.
Also, I don't know why that is, but I haven’t seen any DH bikes out there that run an air RockShox shocks with the MegNeg to be honest, which is also something that’s stopping me going this route for now.

That’s why if anyone has some experience with this combo on a newer Sender frame, some feedback will be greatly appreciated.

Cheers Smile
