I have a Spider2. Frame size is a small with 120mm fork. I presently have the rear set up for 120 to match the fork.
My Weight fluctuates between 175-180
I run anywhere between 180-200 lbs of Air in the shock
With the rebound between 3-5 clicks out. Shock is a Fox RC
Fork is a Fox RLC with anywhere from 100-75 lbs of pressure
Tire pressure between 35-45
These settings all pending upon the trail and speed of the trail. Slower trails require less air pressure in the shock as well as the tire.
I pretty much ride the big ring most of the time
With that being said......
The issue is when I am hammering the back end seems to Kick up when going over logs or rocks (I guess I can describe it as Yamahop). I Notice that when I slow the rebound I experience packing up. I Futz around with all sorts of setting and just cant seem to get it right.
I have a couple of older tracers and the Suspension is incredible!
The Handling is Phenominal. i am trying to capture that same ride on the spider.
Anyone have any suggestions?
