    Satori Suspension Setup Database

    I'm starting this thread to chronicle my Satori suspension setup as it progresses as I've found the lack of information on the Revelation RLT a bit annoying. If you have anything to add, please feel free.

    One thing, I cannot set the + pressure by sag as anything over 50psi sees very little to no sag on the fork.

    I'm 210 lbs, and I started at 135 psi as the fork said on the leg. there's a break in period on the fork so I ran this for my first 2 rides, but found the ride a bit too harsh. So I tried a few more settings.

    I'm now running 110 in the main, and 115 in the negative, that is feeling much better. One of our suspension techs advised me not to go more the 10 psi different in the positive vs negative chamber.

    I guess I should say something about the back.

    The stock RP2, I at first went with rider weight (220 for me with a camelback), but found it a bit harsh. I'm now running 200, which seems pretty good. That's either 10% below rider weight or 20 lbs below. The other folks at the shop are going with similar settings right now.

    I'm surprised you can go higher at all in the negative without blowing through the travel. Are you setting psi based on sag or feel?

    i was talking to one the techs at our shop, he was the Trek race team mech for a few years and asked him about how to get some more small bump sensitivity out of the fork. I had 2 choices, increase the negative spring or change the damping. I went with the neg spring. he said not to go more than 10psi more in the neg than the positive.

    edit--I'm not looking at sag at all, just feel.
