    Ripley Owners, Weight and Rear Shock PSI please

    Hi All, for those of you lucky enough to get your Ripley already. Can you tell me the PSI you are running in the rear shock, and your riding weight? I'm curios if the Ripley is Big Boy friendly

    Well, I maybe I won't help much then because I'm a lightweight - 145#.... but on the demo I had them set it up "soft" and that was about 120# I think.... or about 20% below 1:1 and it was awesome and did not "squat" too much. By comparison when I set up my Tallboy that soft I bang the pedals a lot.... on the Ripley on a full day ride I hit the pedal once. Hope this helps...

    Of topic but Nate got his answer in another thread...
    I have a Tallboy. What are your thoughts about the comparison? I have an idea... But would like to hear your feedback.

    I'm 155#, and have it set at 155 psi. The booklet says 10 below weight, but it sits better for me at 155.
