    Trek suspension setup calculator?

    Does anyone actually stick with the suggestions on the Trek website?

    The Trek website said I should use 100psi/7 clicks out for the fork and 260psi/2 clicks out.


    This not only left me using only about 50% of my travel, it is vastly different rebound speeds and almost bucked me off the bike because the rear rebounds so much faster. The fork and shock go in opposite directions for faster rebound (fork counter clockwise, shock clockwise). So its 3rd fastest for the shock and 8th slowest for the fork.


    Before the bike felt "right" I had to drop the fork pressure to 85, shock pressure to 200, and increase rebound to 2 clicks in (fastest rebound is all the way "out").

    I think the Trek settings are a base to help you get started. I would set the pressures to the correct amount of sag for your riding style then adjust the other adjustments slowly to get the best out of the suspension.

    X2. I am 230 and it shows 110/7 and 270/2. Rides rough, and little travel. Sag didn't add up. Using the 'ride and check oring method' I am on 85/8 and 250/2 and very happy. 2013 EX8, Float CTD with DRCV.

    I have a similar experience. It is better to set it up with sag in mind. With the recommended psi the fork especially is too stiff.
