To achieve the requisite 8-10mm of sag on an '09 Scalpel with an RPL, I have to set the shock pressure extremely low. I weigh ~ 150 and have the following data:
To get the recommended sag I need 20 psi or less! This seems very odd. I'm loath set the shock so low because the Fox RPL specs a minimum pressure of 50psi.
From what I've gathered from other posts, seems around 50psi should be appropriate for a 150 lb. rider.
I removed the shock, released the air, and it still took a substantial effort (full body weight) to fully compress the shock. This is my only rear suspension bike so I have no idea whether this is normal.
