    rear shock PSI? carbine

    I just got my new carbine, I am 225# and I put @ 200 psi before my ride and I did bottom down the shock a few times. I normally run coil in my bikes so I do not have much experience with air shocks. Should I start the PSI at my weight and go from there?

    As you didn't mention what shock you have, every shock manufacturer has it's own weight/PSI table (google it). Find the PSI for your weight and start from there. If the shock is too hard, let some air out, if it's too soft, put some more air in. Basically, you need to have around 20-25-30% ( firm or plush, depends what you want) SAG with full riding gear on.

    If you're in control, you aren't going fast enough.

    Maybe some people can put their weight, type shock and shock pressure here. It could be helpfull for the initial setup and go further from there.
