Don't kwnow if I should created a post for this question or should I post it in the FAQ thread?
By the way, I bought an altitude 730 for my wife and was surprised how low pressure should I fill in the shock to reach a 25-30% of sag.
For its 115 lbs the pressure is around 100 psi, and in consequences a full open rebound : best way to have a "freezing" shock, and spike transcient. At the begining I thought the shock was overdamped for her weight, so I decided to sent it for a comp and rebound tune dedicated.
First : impossible to pull out the shock. the rear fitting have no play. No problem for the ride-9 side, but I didn't find the astute for the rear side. The only way I see is to pull out a part of the linkage; I should miss something !!
With my only one side shock free, I tried to move the rear axle (up and down). The input force is unbelievably huge to make the whole linkage move. No doubt about the stiffness and the free maintenance ABC system, but concerning the stictions ???
For sure they will diseapered, but when? Does the break-in period is synonimous of end of life, play in the ABC pivots?
Does someone share the same experience? (I know the bike is really new!!)
One think I know now is : no question of tuning shock till the end of break-in period.
