    Lefty Max140 TPC compression damp. settings?

    I have my knob at the lowest compression dampening, I am affraid of loosing sensitivity on bumps.

    I'm just curious how most of you guys have yours set. Does increasing the compression dampening really help for bobbing without killing the sensitivity? Thanks

    Fear not, you won't stop the world from spinning by cranking it up It's possible to even change it on the trail if you don't like it! Even on the firmest setting, it will still have far superior small bump feel than an SPV on the softest setting. Try going full firm, then mid way after 1/2 an hour, etc. Play with the thing, that's what you're supposed to do with knobs

    Thanks Craig, I was just being lazy. I'll give it a try

    P.S. - Did you get my message I left you on your voicemail at your shop? A twig tore a hole through my fork boot and I need a replacement. I might even ask you for a seal kit for future use. Give me a holler

    I had a visual of someone midway thru ride, balancing on the bars... one hand at the bottom of lefty... Tweaking the compression... lol

    I've always been too scared to touch the compression.
