    Maestro - does it use chain torque

    Just wondering if maestro uses chain tension to prevent bob. I have an anthem 27.5 and am trying to tune the suspension, it feels a little stiff on the small roots and rocks. Wondering if I can tune that out with a revalved shock or is that just a characteristic of maestro.

    It definitely does, if you look at it from the side, the chainstays lengthen, particularly during the initial travel. However, i've never felt it was detrimental to small bump sensitivity (i'm on a coil sprung ReignX), so i think you should be able to improve your suspension by tweaking the air pressure and compression damping.

    I doubt you need a revalved shock to turn out the stiffness in the small bump compliance. Increase your sag a little (lower air pressure) or dial back a little damping, but it should be able to deal very easily with plushness on small bumps without bottoming out on "big hits" (remember, it's an XC bike, it's not like you should be hitting big drops on it, a larger G-out should be the biggest compression you get).
