I recently got on my first full squish AM/Enduro and have been somewhat baffled with how to tweak the rear suspension. My bike is fitted with a Dyad RT2 that normally comes stock with Cannondales (Jekyll, Trigger, Claymore--mine's a Scarlet). I am 108 lbs. and at the bottom limit for the rider weight recommendations provided on the website. I have it set as recommended and it feels a little too stiff. I've read other forum posts relevant to setting up the Dyad and most recommend running it lower by 2-3 below the recommended weight on the chart. Since I am at the very bottom weight of the recommended limits I am not sure if I should try to go below that and risk being outside the recommended pressure range.
Do I risk damaging the shock by going below manufacturer's recommendations? How do you suggest I set my rear shock to get more "squish" out of it as it is rather on the stiffer side while following the recommended setting?
