    New question here. 5th element shock setup recommendations?

    [cross-posted from superior olde skool forums]

    I just got a small 2003 iron horse pro with a 5th element rear shock. I've been scratching my head trying to get it set up with all the freakin' adjustments on it. Buddy of mine said, "just post to mtbr...someone'll help you out..." So there it is. BTW, I weigh in at a hefty 150lbs. -- just over 3x the weight of this monster rig.

    Below are the set-up tips from the Iron Horse/Mad Catz team mechanic:

    <<1. Both beginning and ending stroke adjusters all the way out.

    2. Air pressure was between 80-100psi depending on the volume adjuster.

    3. Volume adjuster was between 2-2 1/2 turns in from all the way out...2 turns in = 100ish psi or 2 1/2 turns in = 80ish psi

    4. rebound is rider/terrain preference. >>

    You will probably need a 350lb spring for your weight.
