    04' Jekyll 1000 suspension set-up?

    Am having trouble dialing in my Jekyll 1000 suspension. Mainly ride singletrack, loose rock with varied terrain. Some advanced climbs and downhills and some typical cross country. I am leaning toward moving the shock as far forward for a more cross country and climbing setting and adjusting the rear shock pressure and front shock adjustments from there. Had even seen a rider who moved the tightener nut to the other end of the threads to gain some more forward shock placement. Any ideas, just trying to find some consistency and lose some of the soft feel in the corners and on climbs. Thanks for the help!

    Watch your pedal height

    I just moved my shock from full trail (screwed in all the way) back to the middle. I liked the way the bike felt, but there was too much of a penalty in lost pedal clearance. I ride in Arizona, so lots of rocks of all sizes bashing my poor Shimanos. If you don't have as many rocks to contend with, go for it.

    Thanks for the help, have moved the rear shock all the way forward and will try to adjust the front and rear shock pressure from there.
