    Devinci Atlas Carbon initial suspension tune

    Hoping to get out today for my Atlas's first shake down ride.
    I am 180 pounds ready to ride.
    My Atlas has a Rock shox Monarch RT3 rear shox and a Pike RT3 120mm fork.
    The fork seems pretty nice with 70 psi, 4 clicks from full fast lsc and a couple clicks fast from mid way on rebound.
    The rear shock sag seems a little odd, at 160psi I had 35% sag in the open threshold setting.
    I bumped that up to 180psi and still seem to have a little over 30% sag.
    Are you Atlas owners seeing this much sag at these pressures?
    Thinking I will bump it up to 185ish psi and note my travel o ring indicator after hitting some trail features.
    I am also starting at a couple clicks fast from midway on rear shock rebound.
    What settings are you Atlas owners using?
    Thanks for any input.

    I'm 5'7 and 170lbs, I'll check back with my psi settings later tonight. I have both rebounds set in the middle, but I'm using a RWC needlebearing kit that really made the rear shock movement a whole lot smoother.

    Any pics of your build? Always fun to see how much they differ.

    Follow up on suspension settings, I ended up at 190psi rear and 75 psi front.
    Compression and rebound settings untouched from OP.
    I got to spend the weekend in North Ga. and got in a couple of sweet rides at chicopee and Bull/Jake Mtn.
    This bike has surpased my expectations, from both climbing prowess to bombing the DH.
