    Spearfish shock pressure

    My wife has a 2013 Spearfish 1 with a Fox CTD and was just wondering what people were running for pressure. I am borrowing her bike for a race and am trying to get a better idea of what pressure I should be running. I weight 170, maybe 180 with gear. Currently running 120, kinda on the squishy side. Thanks.

    Spearfish shock pressure

    I run ~75% of my body weight. For xc racing I've run it near ~85%

    I have a 2012 Spearfish 2 with the Monarch shock (different shock but similar). I weigh 160 with gear and had it set around 120 psi for many months. I just recently went up to 140 psi because I was wanting a bit firmer ride.

    Use the little rubber ring on the shock to note how much of the shock you are using. This lets you know if you are using the full stroke or if you need to adjust.
