    Prime + Fox Float CTD Trail Adjust settings?

    Just put my new Prime together (photos in a few days) and am wondering how others with the float CTD shock have them set up. How much sag and what trail settings are you using?

    23-25%ish, i ran 130 psi but i was bottoming out on ditch crossings and drops to flat, i got 150 psi on back now, it still soaks small bumps quite good and climbs great.

    Not sure if you saw the small discussion in the big Prime production thread, but Keith chimed in with the correct SAG in MM for a given percentage, basically 25% SAG= 13mm and around 15mm was 30%. Was going by percentage of the shafts length, but the compression curve isn't constant, so that's not right, ended up putting in about 15 PSi more in my shock for 25% SAG and like the change.

    Thanks for the help guys...getting it dialed now. Feel clunks in the rear once in a while...trying to narrow that down now. As well it seems my trail adjust knob is stuck...can't seem to move it and done tons of google searches to see if I am just missing something simple...anyone else have that issue. Maybe my girly fingers just can't get enough grip on it...lol.

    You need to lift the trail adjust collar to make it turn.

    Haha, I had the trail adjust turning issue when testing a proto last year... thought I needed to man up! Yeah, wasn't imediatly obvious, and back then I didn't have many resources to help work it out... embarassingly my girlfriend solved it after I had made my finger bleed trying to turn it! D'oh
