    Tuning the Reba RL

    Can someone give me some tips for tuning the fork on my new Goblin?

    This bike is more than I expected by the way. What an awesome bike for the money!

    Not sure if you have the dual or solo air but here is a good start.

    On the fork there should be a rider weight guide which is helpful.

    Do a search and lots of good stuff in some forum threads.

    Enjoy the bike.

    Re: Tuning the Reba RL

    I have the solo air. I understand the preload, and think I have this set correctly. I'm curious about the compression knob, and rebound adjustments.

    Is the compression knob just an on/off setting for lockout, or should this be tuned to an optimum position? Also, should I start with the rebound setting in the middle for a good starting point?

    Turning the rebound all the to the rabbit well make the fork extend quicker after each compression stroke and vice versa if turned all the way to turtle. A lot of fork adjustments are so personal that I've learned that it is best just to mess with it yourself once you've learned what everything does.
