I am setting up the Rear Shock and rebound for my new 2008 Trance 2. This is for the Trance 2 with the Giant Shock.
I started with the Guides 100% of rider weight which in my case was 175 lbs. I rode it like this yesterday and did not notice a problem, but was not setting up the sag/rebound. Today I try to set the sag with the 175lbs pressure in the shock and it is very stiff and the O Ring is not moving much at all.
Long story short .... to get anywhere near the recommended 20-30% sag, I had to set the shock at about 120lbs. In my search for pressure on this shock, that seems out of line with what others are experiencing.
Is there something wrong with the shock? Or does it just need to be "broke in"? Or do pressures from shock to shock really vary that much?
Also, where is are you setting your rebound? Do you close it all the way (clockwise) and then start backing off 'X' number of clicks?
Thanks for your help
