    2014 epic setup help

    I have a new expert carbon epic. just to make sure i'm setting it up right here is what i am far only bedding the brakes on the driveway with the nasty DC weather

    for the front rockshox brain fork...i weigh 195 lbs, air up to 125/150lbs and then adjust rebound and damping. there does not seem to be a release on this like there is on the rear

    for the rear, pump up to 300 or so and then hit the release valve while seated on the bike. it says cycle the shock but i dont want it too loose. then adjust rebound and damping.

    am i missing anything? what should i do setup wise to minimize pedal bob?

    make sure you set the brain on the rear to the softest setting before you do the autosag

    There is no 'release' button on the front fork. set the pressure to your weight. make sure you wear all your riding gear when setting up the rear autosag. pays to have someone else press it whilst you are positioned upright as wobbling will affect it. Also make sure you don't pump up the wrong valve. have heard of that happening before.

    For sag setup I would suggest that you put all dials to minimum - rebound, compression, brain fade.
