Hi I have just purchased a new 2011 S Works Epic 26” fitted with a Specialized E100 fork which has a ‘Brain’ I am struggling to set this up however and can’t find anything on this forum to assist
I upgraded from a 2010 Epic which was fitted with a Reba that had a manual lockout.
The problem I am having with the E100 are:
• The Brain does not look the fork out when I stand up to climb a hill, it feels like I go past the threshold of the Brain and move into normal movement of the fork
• When corning the fork is locked out so on a bumpy course (as I rode yesterday) the front end of the bike basically skipped across the bumps and I had no grip as the fork was locked out. And it didn’t appear to move past the brain and get into normal operation
My initial thoughts are that I therefore need to back the brain off and make the fork react quicker to bumps but that is not going to help me when I want to climb out of the saddle.
Obviously with my old fork I could lock the fork sold for climbing and then open for flat and downhill
I am running the advised settings at the moment which gave me correct sag (Weight 180 lbs., 90PSI, 1 ˝ revolutions of rebound and brain is set to 2 clicks from full firm)
I remember reading a post about setting up this fork on a Stumpjumper but couldn’t find it and there was extensive comments about changing internals etc.
Any advice gratefully received
