    Hi have this setup and with a Fox DHX Air 5.0. I run the Nixon at 70psi and the rear Fox shox at 140psi or so with 200+ in the boost valve. I weight 182lbs, probably 190lbs with gear.

    I like the Nixon mostly, nice and plush, good low weight and its pretty stiff. Though I would prefer a fork with travel adjust as I find it a tall fork for low speed tight technical turns.

    Cheers,

    Not to derail the thread but those shock pressures sound way off. I'm only a little heavier than you and I run ~200 in the main chamber and 150-160 in the piggyback. I'd be running about 60% sag at 140 in the main chamber...

    I'm not sure what to say here. Those are my pressures, they give about 20% sag since I ride trail mostly and it feels lively and eats the big hits.

    Are you running the same shock? Mine has ProPedal too...

    Perhaps its personal preference.

    Honestly, just looks like the numbers are backwards...transposed or terminology off?

    That's what I was thinking too. I run 210 in the main and 150-165 in the pig depending on the trail and I weigh 210.
