    Jekyll Fox Float Pro Pedal-HELP!

    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!

    try this...

    My Fox pro pedal as well. I have noticed some bob during out of seat mashing uphill or sprinting. I have also eliminated 95% of it with the wheel adjuster and weight to psi match. I started with the wheel adjusted in the middle, about 12 clicks and added the same psi as my weight 180lbs. I have my sag set about .55 in. When you are mashing look down and see if you are bobbing if you are, use the wheel adjuster and turn 5 clicks at a time and try this till you dial in your "happy zone" (due to a lack of official terms). The boinga boinga you are talking about is the fast rebound,dampen it a little and see if that helps. It really does work,we have to play with it a little and find our own zones. Good luck.
