    Help with how to set up Romic ?

    Got my new 5 Spot but have no clue how to set up the Romic. I weight 180, can anyone help? By the way, bike is mostly xt with Talas RL, weighs about 27.5.

    you got a manual with that Romic shock?

    if now download one online at www.romicmfg.com
    1) check your sag to make sure you have the right spring
    2) set compression and rebound
    3) off you go!!

    This cite has also been set forth as helpful. [size=2]

    However, because I am such a doofus, I can't do any of it right. Can't even change my spring, etc. The Romic manual is only somewhat helpful. I have some questions too. Is there a torque setting for the bolts to attach the shock to the frame? Should I care about this? When installing a new spring, how/where do I start at zero preload? It says no more than three turns of preload, but where do I begin?
