    2011 genius 20, equalizer setup

    Hi all!,

    I have some troubles with my genius, in fact I'm thinking to sell the bike.

    I feel that the bike doesn't absorb properly.

    If I put the pressure indicated in the equalizer, the sag is more than 30% so I've tried to put more pressure in the + chamber (more than 5bars). But even matching the sag, I don't feel the 150mm.

    I've tried also to put less pressure in the - chamber according the flash tool in scott web page (soft setup) and match the sag again but it's the same.

    The worst thing is when I ride thogh a deep groove, it feels like a hard trail.

    I weight 75-80kg, and the rebound is at 7.
    I guess the problem is that the equalizer doesn't recover enought and some time with a little pothole it bottoms.
    But with a lower rebound, the bike eject me.

    I have tried a zesty for instance and the rear suspension was like butter.

    Any help?, is it a problem of setting or is the bike like this?
    Sometimes I think my former kona (of 100mm) had a better suspension.

    Thanks in advance

    I love my Genius 2010. She is plush. I run 20PSI over the recommended in chamber 1 and 10 below on chamber 2. My rebound is on 5 and sag is around 30%. Handles the chunk of the desert rocky mountains very well. Almost sounds like your twinlock is not adjusted correctly. Take it to the shop and ask for assistance if you havent yet.

    I don't know the rebound number but my positive air pressure is 350 psi and my negative is 250psi. seems to work for me. I am 6foot 1 and 215 lbs, than I get dressed.
