    Carbine 275 ? On rear shock mount

    I'm assuming the upper hole is for 6" and the bottom 5.5". Is that correct? Which setting do most ride in here? My frame came mounted in the lower hole

    Correct. For trail riding, 5.5" (90%). For gravity riding I use 6" mode (upper hole).

    Mine came like yours, in the 5.5" mode. Rode that for a while then switched to 6" 3 months ago, and haven't changed it back.

    I don't think anyone here can give you the right answer, since its up to you for what feels best. Trying both settings on the same trail would be a good start.

    Ok - probably a stupid question but before changing the setting do you need to let the air out of the shock first?

    No, just hold the bike up while switching it out. Really simple.
