    Any way to lower the minimum threshold on Mission Control damper?

    Hi all,

    I have a Lyrik 2 step and ride a lot of technical steeps with step downs. My descending skills are not the greatest and I find that engaging the threshold really helps keep the fork up in its travel and prevent endos. The trouble, of course, is that with the threshold engaged even set to the minimum, the bump absorption is waaay reduced so the bike handles poorly on the other parts of the descent.

    Is there any way to change the threshold range so that I can try to find the sweet spot in between threshold off with max LSC (not enough damping), and threshold on at minimum (too much damping)?

    I am aware that the long term fix is to improve my technique, I'm working on it

    Maybe you could add a higher viscosity oil to your damper to increase LSC even more. Traction must be terrible with that much LSC, though.

    The air spring has too much volume - get a coil Lyrik that offers more support.
