    I think it really depends on your weight. But for what its worth I was running my at 35the my last run out and got the full travel, but it was way too soft but no real issues bottomingPut it back up to the 60psi they recommended for my weight and it feels stiffer gina take it downhilling this weekend so time will tell how it feels.

    This is on a solo air, and if I remember rightly the 2 step calls for high pressure

    Yeah 60 was what I running but moved down to 40 which feels much better but still feels like its ramping up just before 6" . 2 step portion still working at 40psi so ...I guess I can take all the air out and see if it bottoms when pushed down. If it does I think I will take out a bit more.

    Pretty sure this is accurate....the 2 step air recommendations are quite a bit higher than for solo air. I run my solo in the low 30s to 40 psi and feel even this is firm for a lot of terrain, but I get full travel on the bigger hits. (I weigh 150ish without gear)
