    Idea! Post your pressure, graph to follow.

    I'd like to collect as much data as possible to make a purdy graph of rider weight vs. pressure for each riding style.

    Please reply to this with the following information:
    * weight including gear
    * pressure in your rear...shock
    * style: light (XC), medium (AM), aggressive (DHish)

    Naturally, I'll post the graph once I have enough data.
    All your base are belong to ME.

    Since I'm kind of a data nerd, I thought I would lend a hand as I would like to see what kind of results this will produce.

    To make the data collection a bit easier, you can enter your information on this form:
    https://spreadsheets.google.com/view...Z0VIZmZoSlE6MA

    The spreadsheet containing the information can be found here along with the graph:
