Does the weight of the rider affect these settings? I prefer less fork travel so when I hit the brakes the bike does not dive as much, but will this affect handling?

Just kidding, did you set yours up like this, and if so is it better?

Also, I think I knoww what "sag" is but how do you set it?

Yes Yes, its true, its true.....He's officially come out to the forum.......Hopefully you'll welcome him with open arms......and clenched butt cheaks........

Take it a click further towards firmer if you are a "heavier/big boned" rider. Atleast to myself it made the front end feel more stable than thier recommendations......

penfold, you are more "hobbit-shaped" than I am, I think.

Next warm day (warm being above 32 degrees), I am gonna take it out and test out the different settings.

By the way, I went out for a ride the other day and the bike shut off on me, wouldn't turn back on.

After I pushed it home for almost a mile up hill, I pulled the plug on the rectifier and it was black and melted.

i got a different rectifier but I havent pu it on yet...maybe tomorrow...

If it's not one thing, its another...

dj I think my "I am a homo" punishment has outstayed its welcome.

I think maybe "I am cool", or " I am a stud", or "my bike is cooler than yours" would be more appropriate.
