    Just a tip: adjusting the air and the spring preload have NOTHING to do with the rebound.

    so why don't you adjust the REBOUND if it is not working the way you would like it to?

    Turn the rebound knob all the way in one direction - bounce up and down on bike

    too slow rebound, turn rebound knob all the way in other direction - bounce on bike

    too fast rebound, turn rebound knob till you find something you like

    Big Hucks = slow rebound (or you will get bucked)

    fast downhill = half-fast rebound (say half-fast quickly)

    Less air in the SPV chamber will speed up the rebound. The SPV dampers are connected to the rebound dampers. The Air in the piggyback is pushing the orifice down and the whole shut. Harder for oil to go through. Less air will help with the rebound...
