    DUC 32 static sag???

    Hey guys,

    I just rebuilt my fork and I've never actually measured from the seal to the bottom before until now. The reading came out to 5.5". Hopefully this is just the negative spring. I can pull the wheel down to get the full 6". Is this normal? Other than that the fork feels awesome!
    I weigh 200lb ready to ride and fork set up is:
    5nm negative spring
    air cartridge 90psi with 15cc to help with bottoming out
    damper side 80psi with stock shims.

    Thanks,
    CMB

    yep, that's pretty normal for the case where the air pressure in the air spring is too weak to overcome the negative spring ...

    not too surprising for 90psi & the 5Nm spring.
    but is that enough of either for 200lbs weight?

    Thanks for your answer! I feel when I go above 90psi, the fork feels harsh on the smaller stuff. I just bumped up the pressure to 130psi and I'll bring an air shock in case I need to adjust it down. At 130 I get 5 3/4", so better. I looked at the tuning chart & it rec. 100 - 130.

    Thanks,
