sorry for the huge pics
Last year i swapped my manitou 6 way (finally) for a 5.0... bought the same dimensions as my 6way ( 8.75" i2i,,, 2.75" stroke) but with a 500 lb spring
2 weeks ago i bought a lighter 400 lb spring ( which, according to the mtn spring calculators is correct ) and feels so much better
but now i am experiences a sh*t load of tire rub, even on the littlest drops
i had the shock shuttle in the middle, which is what i prefer, geo felt great
but i did move the shock shuttle towards the rear tire ( more FR geo ) and really did not like how it felt, but it did solve the shock rub problem..
my dhx is tuned for DH as- 150 Psi in air chamber, 2 clicks of propedal, barely any spring preload ( maybe one or two turns ), and bottom out pretty much cranked
what is there to do? smaller 26" tire is the only thing i can think
i want to keep the shock shuttle in the middle postion
