    Is the Rush setup guide right?

    I have searched and did not find an answer. I am just a bit confused, basically because I am still getting used to a full suspension bike and I am having a small problem getting the front to feel the way I want it. ( I am 220,using a black negative spring, 30mm sag ).

    But the real question is about the DLR2 rebound adjustment knob which says “rebound” with of course a “+ “ and “-“ sign. To me looking at the knob you would turn the knob “+” for more rebound or “-“ for less rebound.

    The Rush set-up guide in reference to adjusting rebound states
    “Turn in “+” direction for more dampening and slower rebound speed”
    “Turn out “-“ direction for less dampening and faster rebound speed”

    So is the setup guide right and I am just reading too much into it?

    The best way to find out is also the most fun: head out to your favorite trail and play with the knob, you'll figure it out fast enough!

    + means more damping (ie slower rebound).

    This should be pretty obvious by twiddling and seeing the effect.

    GlenH is right, + means more damping = less rebound or slower rebound
    It's the same with motorcycle suspensions

    Yep. It's the opposite of what you'd think it would be.

    This confused me too on my first bike with rebound control.
