I have a new ripmo with the fox 36 grip 2 and it is harsh as f*ck. I can’t get it to ride well. Seems to only work when going really slow or really fast. Everything in between is horribly harsh. I’m 190lbs and running at 80psi with the recommended settings in hi/lo compression and rebound. Any advice?

I just took my new Ripmo with the grip2 out for the first ride and that fork is like a magic carpet ride. So smooth, so much small bump sensitivity. Crazy good fork.

Look up some YouTube videos on the tuning, start at wide open high and low speed compression and then make adjustments to fit, couple clicks at a time. Fork should not be harsh, if it is still harsh with the compression full open you might need to just call fox.

I would start with removing the volume reducers. This made a huge difference for me and took about 10 min.

Check out my setup video on YouTube @ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D9vsOHmmmpo

I get daily feedback on how this helped their Fox 36 feel insanely better. Fox's out-of-the-box settings don't seem to work very well for most riders (myself included).
