The Tuesday Tune Ep 19 - Rebound Damping

This week, we're talking about rebound damping.

 @vorsprungsuspension what a cocktease. All this talk about physics and no tips? When is it better to go a little faster with rebound, or a little slower? What are some familiar symptoms that my rebound is too fast or too slow? What on earth do I do with those two red knobs on my DHX2? INQUIRING MINDS NEED MORE

 I recommend that you go faster on your rebound when it's too slow, and slow it down when it's too fast. That's what the two red knobs on your DHX2 are for Smile

In all seriousness, we'll cover that in an upcoming episode because it's simultaneously very complicated, and easy to simplify.

 @VorsprungSuspension: Thanks, that helps a lot.

 @VorsprungSuspension I always find myself adjusting rebound (shock) slower than faster, somehow it makes easier to keep my body centered on the bike when the trail gets faster and bumpy, also to recover from jumps, drops etc (not too high anyway).
The problem is that as I get faster on those bumpy trails the shock starts to feel "rigid" (compared to faster rebound settings), is this correct?
Should I ride with a faster rebound (if I get that rigid feeling) even if that means that the bike will have a more vivid behaviour and to adapt my driving to that?
keep this videos coming! The Tuesday Tune is so educational! (Also, you're getting better on this!)
