    Roll call! shock and fork set up database!

    We already have a set up sticky thread, but the most helpfull info is missing from most posts. So lets have it. Give us your weight, what bike you ride, and what kind of rider you are, and then tell us what your suspension setting are. I'll styart I'm a 34 Y.O. expert xc racer with a carbon RX, and I'm running 100lbs in the rp23, and 79 in the fox 100 rlc fork. The fork is right in the middle on rebound, and the shock is only two or three clicks in. I'm happy with my fork setting, but still unsure of the rear, and the front end tends to drop when i leave the ground, which is no good.

    '03 Quasi-Moto, 5.9" travel config, est 35# as built
    Rider 225 bear-nekkid

    Fork: '07 Marzocchi 66 SL1 ATA, 140-180mm travel (175 in truth...)
    - 100 psi PAR, 50 psi SFA, 0 psi RC2
    - rebound centered
    - compression centered
    - oil as-shipped
    - sag 25% rider-only

    Shox: '07 Marzocchi Roco TST R
    - 700# steel coil (note that frame gives 3:1 leverage ratio)
    - bottom-out chamber as-shipped (don't know psi, will post when I have it)
    - rebound centered
    - TST in DS, but not yet trail-proven so future is undecided
    - sag 25% rider-only

    yes, I setup my sag a little "lean" so that when I have gear on it'll be betwixt 25- and 30%

    The Roco replaced an '03 Vanilla RC coil that really showed it's age once the 66SL was mounted. Totally an unproven quantity on the Quasi at the moment, but I'm optimistic based upon bouncing around the neighbor's yards and such. I really need a back yard like Evil Patrick though, then I'd know for sure.
