    Measuring sag with a new stroke length shock?

    I switched the shock on my XCL from 2.00" to 2.25". Should I preload my shock with 30% of 2.25" (.675") or 2.00" (.6"). I know the difference is only .075, so the question is probably more theoretical than practical, but fun for me to think about.
    If I use .675" I will sitting further into my travel. If I use .6" will it affect how the shock performs?
    Oh the questions I ponder on a dark Monday night?

    30% seems to be a sweet number for most aggressive trails.
