    Fox Float RL

    I have an 04 Jekyll 800, I am currently running about 145lbs air in the shock, I weigh 170. I am curious what other people have their shocks set at. I really have not adjusted the shock other than the air.

    Gripshift there is no exact pressure for all riders. Depending on your taste hard vs. soft compression/ride, slow vs. fast rebound/response, terrain, riding style. Cannondale has some good recommendations for your shock set-up on their online Jekyll manual at:

    http://www.cannondale.com/Asset/iu_files/114608.pdf

    Starts on page 9 of 13 I believe for the shock set-up. Once you've got the initial set-up you can play with it and dial it in for you.

    By the way I've got the "04 800 SOBE frame upgraded w/the Manitou spv 3-way rear and the Lefty MAX w/TPC+ fork. If you get an opportunity to get the spv do it! It makes a world of difference!!!!

    Hey thanks for the link. I know I have some adjustments to play around with. I can't wait til I get the bike dialed in.
