    Come on guys, I seriously need help with my Slider Plus...Please

    Ok, I bottomed it out yesterday on an easy 5' drop for some reason I need to find out. How much pressure do I need to have in it. I didn't know if I have it on a bad rebound setting(How do I know where a good place to set it is). Also, some guy told me a couple weeks ago that the Slider Plus had light springs and he was replacing his with heavier ones, and I didn't know if that could be the problem either. Kinda want to go ride today so any input would really be appreciated.
    When my mom tries to tell me what to do I tell her to SHUT HER HOLE BEFOR I KICK HER IN THE NUTS!

    The springs are probably too soft fot sure. Rebound won't do much for botoming. I would say you probably need to find out what springs you got and what springs you need.

    Sherman springs are uber-soft. Get an extra heavy one. Play with oil weight after that.

    1) What kinda springs am I looking for and where do I look for them. My LBS is all XC.
    2) What do I do to play with oil weight

    Your LBS should be able to just order the springs straight from Manitou. Just ask them and they can put in the order for it.

    is making a comeback.

    Turns out that five years of not mountain biking, really makes one strive to get back to it.

    With Manitou forks I don't think is good idea to play with the oil...just get a hevyer spring (heavy or extra heavy if you're over 190lbs)...that's all you need..
