I've absolutely loved my Satori - 2013 model - for the 10.5 months i've owned it. I have over 100 rides on it, and more than 1000 miles of Colorado/UT/WY trails.
Recently - it seems a bit "off". I know there could be a number of variables - including me - but here goes.
I've had the front fork serviced - but not the shock.
It seems to have developed a harshness to small bumps and just lost the plush i became accustomed to. (Indeed - maybe need to service both fork and shock?)
Also - seems no matter my setup (both sag and rebound damping) or riding mode - CTD - i'm just not feeling "good" on the bike.
I went thru some tires and ultimately now back to the setup that had me and the bike on cloud nine for months (Maxxis ardent 2.4's frt/rr)
Im currently running frt fork at 24-26% sag (approx 70lbs air pressure and targeted 25% sag but "exact" is tuff to achieve) Rebound anywhere from 4-7 clicks from full closed (to minimize the pogo stick of being too fast)
Currently running the rear shock at same - 24-26% sag which is approx 150lbs air pressure(targeted 25% but realize "exact" is a bit tuff to achieve). rebound 4-6 clicks from full closed.(again to minimze a pogo stick effect)
These settings have worked well - but again, seems of late the bike is riding. Oddly enough - in the spring it seems my sag was likely closer to 30% on the rear - prob form cold storage and leakage. Felt PLUSH as you would imagine - but the bike still worked up or down everything...
Im 5' 6". Approx 170lbs with camelback/gear.
Any thoughts?? tips? how are you setup? Does it sound like maybe a shock or fork tune.service in order?
BTW - daily rides are steep up/down, rocky, loose, some tight switchers, etc... regular ride was Apex but now shut down due to rains. I run my tires tubeless and always in the 22-24pressure range - maybe some days a bit more or less... but that seems mostly constant thru the range of changes i've felt.
Thanks - Dan
