Review: Fox 36 GRIP2 vs. RockShox Lyrik RC2 Fork
As far as I'm concerned, Fox really dropped the ball on their tuning guide: 1) The optimal pressures and sag settings seem too high for the average rider. 2) They don't really address the extra HSC clicks that many of the forks seem to have, although the newer version of the tuning guide sort of does. 3) The base compression tune is the same for everyone!?! WTF? I'm pretty sure it takes more force to decelerate my 220 lbs than it does the average 160 lbs rider . Since force is proportional to mass times deceleration, and damping force is roughly proportional to fork velocity, larger riders with more mass should need more force (more damping) at the same fork compression velocities or they will blow through more travel. 4) The rebound damping settings, especially for LSR seem way too closed (slow) at least for heavy riders like me.

Review: Fox 36 GRIP2 vs. RockShox Lyrik RC2 Fork
@Svinyard: Yes the "stock screw in bolt with the Cam Lever" was what I was talking about but I'm 220lbs (more for riding weight) so your results may vary. As I said, it made less of a difference on the trail than when I was actually flexing and trying to rotate in it the garage. To see what LSC and HSC do after you slowly let the air out and remove the valve stem, first close them both all the way. As the review says, the fork is almost completely locked out. Then open the HSC a couple clicks at a time and try compressing the fork to see what it feels like each time. Now try the same test with the LSC open a little more. Repeat as you like. For my fork and my preferences I found that Fox's new manual settings (measured from gently closed) were almost exactly what I wanted the LSC and HSC to feel like, at least for this kind of static test.
