Jason Posted January 9 Share Posted January 9 (edited) Hi all, I hope everyone is keeping well? Over Christmas I decided to treat myself and my T7 to a whole new suspension setup. Tractive X-TREME shock with an 85 N/M spring & Tractive pro, closed cartridge kit with a 6 N/M spring Now a bit on myself, I am 81 ish kg without my riding kit. So while I haven’t weighed myself and probably should with it all on I’d imagine this jumps to about 86/87kg. Especially with a camelback of water on my back. I got my local bike shop to complete the install and I then setup the suspension as per the recommended settings in the manual (to get started at least). with 0 preload I was getting 22% sag again without my riding gear so I suspect this will be around 30% when I gear up. (I know I need to double check this but need to grab the misses to help . Watch this space) Anyway I got the first spin in yesterday, just a quick local loop. First impressions was it was super hard, so much so I was only using half the travel on my forks. I reduced compression a lot, think I landed at 5 clicks off fully open as opposed to 10 clicks from full closed like the recommendations suggest. I also backed off rebound another 5 clicks from full if memory serves. The fork began to feel much better then and used a good 3/4 of the travel on a less harsh piece of track so getting there with it. The shock is a bit more confusing to me because it has low speed & high speed compression. Anyway the reason for my thread. Can anyone help with some suggested settings for my weight specifically? I’ll manage to sort the fork with my own knowledge I think, but the shock is a bit harder with more settings thrown into the mix. I ride 80% off road, mostly single track these days with fire roads between. Some tracks are quite rough & used in a lot of enduro events. I can already tell the suspension will be amazing for this riding, I just need to dial it. Thanks in advance for the help Edited January 9 by Jason Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
