    Set up for Dt Swiss on Mojo

    My new Mojo has been built and is waiting for me in NY! Unfortunately I am currently in Auckland, hoping Fishboy has better weather in Rotorua

    So does anybody have any advice for when I get my bike as to what PSI I should set my shock (DT Swiss XR Carbon) fork (Talas32 RLC) up to? I weigh 80kg with kit and will be mostly riding cross country, trials like the Sky line, Whites Level in Afan, Wales, so a combo of roots and rocky sections and tight single track..

    I have read the Mojo set up guide, which gives me a pretty good idea for the fork, more curious about the DT shock.. Many thanks in advance...

    Dt

    The DT setting to start out with would be about 140 - 145 psi. (about 80% of your weight)

    I run on the low side of 80% of body weight in lbs, more like 75% of 185 lbs at 140 psi.

    One other thing that I noticed is that the DT shock does not take long to break in and that there is not a huge difference between a new shock and one that has been ridden for a couple hundred km.

    I am 85 kg with all gears and setting DT swiss according to sag recommendation (25 % sag), I finished at 110 PSI. Is that possible or is there someting wrong with my DT Swiss ?

    Not at all. I weigh the same and setting up according to the book initially that's almost exactly what I ended up with.

    I have tried even lower pressure, but I now ride with a bit more air in there. For some reason it seems that the DT shock doesn't change it's response all that much across a fairly large range of air pressures. I've never come across that before.

    But anyway, 110 psi sounds normal for 85 kg on the Mojo.
