Yesterday I finally was able to take a real ride on my "new" 2000 4-Banger. I had gotten it "good enough" so that I could shake it down and see what I thought before investing more money, etc. It was exactly what I hoped it would be! Much more plush-riding than my S-Carbon, but still agile. It made me smile. I had some teething problems that eventually put an end to the ride (all of which were assembly errors on my part), but I'm very excited to get 'er dialed in exactly as I'd like. It was much more plush than my friend's brand new Gary Fisher Hi-Fi Deluxe, so that made me feel like I chose wisely for my taste and style.
I've never used air shocks/forks before, but it seems like my guesses were pretty good. Anyone out there have suggestions for 4-Banger pressures in the SID fork/shocks for a 160-lb rider? I seem to have been pretty close at 140 psi in the shock (both pos and neg air) and around 100 psi in the fork (again, both pos and neg).
Can't wait to fix the issues I still have and get back out on it! I'll post an updated picture over in the Schwinn pics thread once I have it dialed in with the new bars, grips, tires, etc.
