    Fox 100X tuning

    My 100X rails on smooth flowing trails but is very harsh over small bumps. The treshold is set completly sensitive and I have tried several different psi and rebound. Is it a one or the other or can it be made to ride plusher? I should mention that I weigh 220 with gear.

    A little harsh

    I think the F100X by nature of using the Terralogic system is going to be less sensitive to small bumps, especially at higher speeds. Then again, what are you comparing it to. I think most shocks unless setup mushy and deep sag will not react to everything. You will give up platform for plushness, I think that's the compromise. Not sure if the F100x was ever meant to be a plush fork.

    I rebuilt my F100X with Enduro seals and new oil. The fork sure seems to work better than before, not to mention the stupid leak problem is gone on the right stanchion. I read in the mag about another aftermarket mod is from Push Industries, where they will go in and polish the brass terralogic weight and change seals etc. Supposed to make the fork work better.
    Question to a custom frame builder..."So what makes your bikes climb better?"....his answer, "Uh, your legs?"

    I read the same article, sounds interesting. How much do you weigh with gear and what psi, treshold, and rebound do you run? I find that the sag set up really does'nt apply. I weigh 220lbs with gear, can run 75psi, and get less than 15mm sag after sitting on the bike for 1 minute to allow the fork to bleed down.

    Set up

    I'm about 170-175 w/gear, I have 80 lbs psi currently, sagging about 15mm. Approx 12 clicks of rebound, which is about the middle of the adjustment. Depends on the trail, if I have a high speed long descent, I'll click out the rebound to about 5 from open.
