    new jekyll dyad pressure set up

    hi all ,
    i just buy a new cannondale jekyll 2011 himod1
    great bike , but i'm not satisfied of the dyad pressure set up suggest .
    the bike is too firm even if in flow mode
    so , i try to change the pressure and now i ride well with +290 / -210 psi
    i'm weight 78 kg
    somebody jekyll owner can advise me going by his experience ?

    I weigh about the same as you 170lbs. I started my DYAD pressures based on the label recommendations (+320/-270) but I too found that way to rigid. I've slowly dropped the pressures down until I found it to my liking and now I'm at (+264/-222) so now I'm three notches below what Fox recommends. FYI, I ride very gnarly trails...

    So it doesn't suprise me you are finding the Fox recommended settings high.

    BTW, Fox recommends 40% sag...when I measure sag on my DYAD at the current settings it is close to 40%.

    HTH.

    thank you dkestar for accurate reply ,
    I proceed too reducing pressure like label recomandation ,
    but it doesn't satisfying me .
    so I try to change pos. and neg. air pressure INDEPENDENTLY by the label .
    I notice that , on equal pos. pressure , reducing neg. pressure you have a faster rebound and a sag reduction.
