    Need help from Ladies riding Skareb Elites!

    Just received the last parts to build up my Wife's new bike. One question I've got...can any of you ladies who are riding a Skareb Elite tell me how much psi you're running? My Wife's about 125-130lbs right now and I'm just not sure how to set up the fork for her. Our first ride is Thursday and she's so excited to get back out after her pregnancy, that I want everything to be as good as possible. Thanks for the help!

    I have an '04 Skareb Super and am running about 110psi for my 125lbs (plus gear). I'm not sure if the Super and Elite use the same pressure range. What you can do is put a zip-tie on one leg and set pressure by the sag recommendations in the owner's manual. I'm actually running at the low end of the range because it felt too soft at the max sag.

    Have fun!

    Look where you want to go. This is as true in life as it is in mtbiking.
