    New question here. New Ibis Ripley Configuration Help

    I just received my new Ibis Ripley LS (gx build) and want some input on configuring the suspension and tire pressure.

    I weigh 190-195 and am 5'8".

    The bike has the Fox Float 34 Fork and Fox Float DPS.

    After reading the manual, I think I should set everything to:

    • Fox Float 34 Performance Series: 90
    • Fox Float 34 Performance Series Rebound: 5 clicks
    • Fox Float DPS Performance Series EVOL: 220


    Do those numbers seem right? Also, how exactly does the Rebound configuration work? Start all the way to the left and then listen for clicks moving clockwise?


    Rear tire: Maxxis Agressor 29x2.50wt
    Front tire: Maxxis Minion DHF 29x2.50wt

    I was thinking of starting out with 30psi. Does that sound right?


    Thanks!

    BTW I ordered it from Velorangutan and the transaction and price was awesome. Wes has been fantastic to deal with.

    I'm 200lbs and run 85psi fork w/4 clicks from open, 190psi rear 6-7 clicks rebound.

    I have the same tire setup on my Ripley w/942 wheelset. I'm running 17-18 front and 24-25 rear with no problems, never even close to a rim strike through fast rocky descents. Can probably go a little lower.

    Normally, rebound settings are specified from fully closed, that's turned fully clockwise, which provides the most damping. Count clicks from there to get the desired rebound damping. Higher fork pressure usually means more rebound damping is needed. For starting pressure, set sag, then vary a bit from there as preferred. There are many good youtubes on how to set up suspension.

    Sag is a good starting point as it takes in to account rider weight, leverage ratio (rear shock), weight distribution of the bike, and is independent of gauge accuracy.
    Do the math.
