    Autosag and extra weight

    When I purchased my 2013 Specialized Epic Comp recently, they set up the autosag for me in the shop. I was just wearing street clothes.

    When I ride, I have a full 100 oz hydro pak, with plenty of tools and tubes, so it's a bit added weight.

    Should I reset the autosag? The o-ring is sitting right at the end of the stroke. Is this okay?

    Thanks for your help.

    Reset it. It should be set with your riding weight. Also take note of the pressure and check after a few rides to make sure your not losing air. Easy to do. Pump it up, sit on the bike and push the valve

    Speaking of the mighty Autosag, I've never really bonded with the whole thing as I tend to keep my brain equipped Futureshock on the stiff side. The more I've become confident withe bike( Stumpy FSR) and left behind the concept of my xc Epic I've progressively lowered the shock pressure close to the sag given by the Autosag procedure.

    Question is : give it 300 PSI,push the button and hear the massive "pffssshhhh" and then what ? After the massive "pfssshh" is gone when do I have to release the button ? If I keep my finger in there the shock keeps losing air,at a minimum but it does,does it stop at some point ?

    When I put mine at 300, sit on it and then push the button, mine kinda like lifts me up.. I can't recall just holding it down a long time, but think it stops itself..

    If you hold the button down, the shock should stop losing air when it hits the 25% sag mark. The bike will feel like it jacks up a bit like described above. Press and HOLD the button or valve.... don't diddle with it, just hold it down.
    Fat guys need bikes too.

    Or you could bypass the autosag feature and do it the old fashion way. I trust my ruler more than I do that little red valve. Just saying...
