    DB Release 3 Shock

    So I just finally got my Release 3 last week and got it Tubeless today and tuned the fork and shock.

    70 psi fork
    195 psi shock

    I am 172lbs

    I read and watched videos that say you should have about 80-90% in the fork and 90% in the shock when putting full force (bouncing has hard as you can) into the bike.

    After doing some super small jumps in the parking lot I have these images and was curious if I need more PSI in the shock.

    My advice would be to find the actuall end of travel by letting air out until you can gently bottom out the suspension. Then you have a real number for 100% making it much more accurate to find real sag and compressed percentages.

    I have a Mission 2.0 with a Fox 36. I have found the pressure recommendations for pressure to be on the high side compared to recommended sag. Based on your pictures I would reduce fork pressure by 5#'s. I have also found the pressure recommendations for the rear shock to be a little low. Looks like you are close to blowing thru the travel on the rear. I would increase the rear pressure by about 10#'s. That should even everything out
