Okay, I did a search and no joy.
I got this Cannondale Jekyll 400 a couple of months ago and like it a lot but then my previous bike was a first generation Super V (the one with the carbon fiber swing arm) to which was added a Super Fatty M fork. I just got the Jekyll back from the LBS where it got it’s 30 day checkup and in order to see if they fixed (unbent) the rear derailleur I went riding on the nearby paved bike trail with the youngest son and Mrs. GaryS. This was the first time I have done a long pavement ride (previous single track is how the rear derailleur got bent- I'm an old man and I crash occasionally) and while pedaling away I noticed that I was bobbing up and down a lot. I pulled in behind my fifteen-year-old on the Super V and even when he was trying to leave ol’ dad in the dust, the Super V didn’t seem to be bobbing at all. Now this Jekyll has the Fox Float with “Pro Pedal” which I thought was supposed to eliminate this boinga, boinga, boinga. Could it be I’ve got too much air pressure in the thing (220lbs and I weigh 200)? The instructions are rather vague. I do have the almost ˝ inch of sag but should I have more? Man, this is almost as disconcerting as trying to set up a wireless network in my house (don’t ask).
Oh, when I ride it off a curb the Manitou Axel fork soaks up the bounce like it wasn’t even there but the rear goes “boinga, boinga, boinga”. ARRRRGH!
