Ive almost got my dh bike dialed. I have one last issue I'm trying to figure out.
On some fast sweeping and NARROW turns, I have a tendency to rub my front tire on the inside of turns.
When I say narrow, think 1 to 1.5 feet wide. I try to keep the tire off the inside, and what happens is I over compensate. Not much better.
I have also spun out the bike 180 degrees on tight corners. Mostly when its loose and dusty.
Its like, the bike WANTS TO TURN on its own
On my last two runs at the bike park, I bumped up the LSC two clicks to keep the front higher. From 3 to 5. It seems to have solved my problem.
Will be doing further tests.
I think my spring rates are right on. I can probably tune down the LSC in the rear to let the bike sag a bit more.
I just need a tad bit less grip in the front, and more in the back. Trying to figure if the LSC on the fork is the best way to go about it.
The bike feels great everywhere else. Takes bumps and jumps with aplomb.
These things never happen on local runs. Just in the parks when going at terminal velocities. Any advice appreciated.
