    AVA setup

    What air presure are you running with your AVA rear shock? I just finished building up a ETSX 50 frame and I weigh 150 lbs. I tried 150 psi with the AVA shock but I was getting too much sag and it felt really soft. I pumped the shock up to 175 psi and it still felt a little soft. How are other riders setting up their rear shocks? I'm comparing the feel of the ETSX to my old bike which was a Santa Cruz Heckler with a Fox Float rear shock. I was using 150 psi with this bike and the shock felt a lot stiffer.

    I've got the AVA locked out full and pumped to 150 psi. I weigh approximately 11.5 stone (sorry don't know what that is in US lbs) and it gives me about 25% sag in the 3.5" travel setting. It's been alright so far but then I've not had the bike that long so I might change it at some point.
