The Privateer: Factory Pro Suspension Testing & Setup in Portugal
@teethandnails: Try setting the sag recommended by Banshee, and then, based on the pressure you're using to obtain that sag, tune the rebound and compression as Fox recomends.

Behind the Numbers: Specialized Stumpjumper EVO 29 Suspension Analysis
@tgent: You're correct. Each suspension design has it's pros and cons. I wouldn't say 50% anti-rise is bad, it just means that the suspension will push a bit to the ground under braking, and that you have to acount for it and adjust your body position.

Behind the Numbers: Specialized Stumpjumper EVO 29 Suspension Analysis
@tgent: A 160mm, progressive suspension curve bike, at 30% sag will not sit 48mm(=160mm*0,3) into it's travel. That would only happen if the bike was completely linear, making 30% of shock stroke equate to 30% travel. Since most bikes nowadays are quite progressive, 30% of shock stroke equates to more than 30% travel at the rear wheel. Maybe tomorrow i'll try and work out how much travel 30% of shock stroke is on a bike with 160mm travel, that starts of with a 3:1 ratio and ends on 2:1. (Too busy rn studying eletricity and magnetism for tomorrow's exam)

Behind the Numbers: Specialized Stumpjumper EVO 29 Suspension Analysis
Since the bike has such a low BB, a nearly liner suspension curve, and 138mm of travel with such agressive geometry, it's seems to have been designed with "over-springing" in mind. Instead of having 160mm of travel, and having used up 65mm when at 30% sag, you have 138mm, and use 35mm at sag, and still achieve the same BB heigth and amount of usable travel as the bigger travel bike. I guess the purpose of all this is to make the bike feel just as comfortable as a big travel bike, but also less planted, aka a nimble bike, that can stilll plow.

Would like to see an analysis on the Mondraker Foxy, wich seems to be the opposite of this bike in terms of suspension kinematics.
