I've got a Firebird on the way, and it's so close I can taste it. So, I've been scrutinizing every nook of the Pivot website to get a jump on dialing in the suspension.
I'm getting an RP23 'bird, and they recommend on the RP23's that: "In general, rebound should be turned all the way out and dialed back in 1-3 clicks depending on rider weight. A sub 145lb rider is full out (fastest setting) where a 200lb rider would be about 3 clicks in."
Now in my previous bikes with RP23, I have done nearly the opposite. I have set the shock to full slow and dialed it back 2-3 clicks to minimize bucking effects. No noticeable wallowing effects at these settings.
Is this something particular to Pivot bicycles, or have I just been dialing in my suspension weirdly?
