    Setting sag, very low pressure

    Hi just bought a new bike with sid world cup 120mm fork. The reccommended psi for my weight is 90 psi, but for me to get 25% sag i only need 60psi, is this too low? Will the fork loosen up abit with time?
    Thanks for any help.
    P.s. I followed the sram guide lines for setting the sag.

    Don't pay attention to suggested guidelines on SID forks. I run 95 psi in mine and it recommends 125.
    If the path ahead looks dangerous ------- it probably is!

    set your sag to what you need. I will say that 25% on a fork is often too much (15% is more normal in a saeted position). Also Yes the fork will loosen up but that should not effect oru sag much if at all.

    while its not the same fork I have a lyrik and based on their chart I should have about 115 psi in it and I have about 85 psi in it and I have about 20% sag while standing on the pedals (better position for setting up longer travel forks)
