Hey guys, new clyde coming back to the sport. Rode mountain when i was in high school and some college but was around the 170-200 mark then Got a GREAT deal on a 2008 Jamis XAM1 ($900) and am giving it the ride around the neighborhood test before taking it on the trail this weekend.
I'm 6'1, 240 and am riding on teh 19" frame. The frame fits great for me, no complaints. I'm running the f/r wheels with 35 psi (which i think is ok for me) but i'm noticing pretty bad pedal strike on moderate corners which is making me question the setup.
I don't have the fork or rear shock dialed in, because frankly i'm not sure HOW. Not even sure what i should be increasing or decreasing if that makes any sense. The only reference to biking that i'm coming from is an old hard tail rockjumper from the mid '90s. So yea, new age newb here
Anyone in my size range that could give me some pointers on what/how to adjust? I know looking down at my DHX shock, it's not bottoming out. It's maybe 2/3 compressed under load, but it's not bottoming out thankfully.
