    Unsure of the positions to use on my CTD Rideloc remote

    Just got this bike today, a Scale 740, and there's no manual. I've looked both on Scotts site and Fox's site and there's not a damn manual anywhere. I'm not sure what position is for climb, trail and descend.

    I'm fairly sure if I thumb the black lever all the way up, thats climb. Hit the release once is trail and hit it again is descend. Can anyone verify this? I've looked up remotes as well, but mine looks different than all the ones I'm seeing.

    I just leave mine in the trail (middle) position 99% of the time. I only use the climb position if I'm out of the saddle climbing for a sustained period of time or sprinting to the finish line against someone.

    That's what I'm hearing from a lot of people.

    Makes me wonder if the CTD system is kind of a gimmick.

    Hi! I've just got my Scott Scale and I didn't quite get the Rideloc system.

    The "climb" position does not lock, is that normal?

    To be honest, the three positions don't feel very different from each other...

    (I 've just had the bike set up, so still didn't try it on the trail...)

    The climb position does't lock and the three positions don't feel that different.

    Is that so?

    Anyone?

    Check to see if it's rotated too far forward. If it is, it will hit the brake lever's frame, housing or reservoir and can't lock into position.

    at the shop I work at, we have found that the cable tension needs to be super taught to be able to engage the trail and climb. We have found that if the cable bolt (at the fork) is pinched with the rotating disk at full rest, it is very hard to get a setting that engages all three settings. We usually need to fiddle a bit with pre-rotating the lockout cap before setting the bolt to find all three positions with the lever.

    Climb mode should be close to full rigid, just a little twitch when pushed into, trail should be stiff at the top of the travel, but open up a bit once you push past the first 1-2 cm. Trail definitely feels different than descend when set up properly.

    I was searching the web to see if anyone else had issues related to Fox 32 Float and its climb mode that feels too soft and look what I've found:

    Fox float 29er fork with Decend, trail & climb - Should the fork lock out on climb?

    It really looks like it is a somewhat common issue...

    Mines broke and I have complete remove the whole system I can honestly say the front doesn't need the lock out if the air pressure is set right but on the rear shock I was missing it on the long climbs I have put more air in it but I would like to just convert it to the switch kind not sure if that's possible all you really need is the trail mode for climbing...any one ever tried converting it to a switch flip?

    I have a Aftermarket Factory Fox Float CTD w/ BV on mine...

    The Climb mode does increase the platform for pedaling efficiency but it's not all that firm, kinda feels like the shock gives in on bumps a lil easier than I'd want in Climb mode. I typically leave it in trail mode the rest of the time.

    I'd like to have a remote on the rear shock again though. The font, not so much depending on the fork. Mine kinda needs it because my Recon is not quite right on the damper side *sighs*.
