BASIC TRACK SET UP
HARD TERRAIN/ BLUE GROOVE TERRAIN
Gernally adjust compression close to as soft as possible to handle square edges while still having some control with bottoming.
INTERMEDIATE/ LOAMY TERRAIN
Generally adjust a little stiffer for the softer terrain, jump faces and bottoming. Optimum settings still should be on the softer side for square edges and rutted corners.
SOFT/ SANDY TERRAIN
Generally stiffen fork compression and shock rebound. You want the bike to ride on top of the terrain, allowing the forks to ride up a little higher.
ROCKY/ ROOTY TERRAIN
Generally you need compression very soft to absorb the sharp hits. Rebound is generally softened to provide a very responsive feel and ride.
FORK HEIGHT AND WHEEL BASE
The lower the fork height and longer the wheel base the more stability you will have in a straight line and at higher speeds. To improve turnng you will want to raise the forks through the clamps and shorten the wheel base. Be carefull when testing with a short wheel base for increased pitch.
