    DVO Fork setup for SS

    Just got a DVO Diamond for my Canfield N9 and looking for setup advice. I'm looking for a good compromise between climbing and absorption.

    I had a Fox Terralogic before so I'm used to it being very stiff on the climbs. I'm aware you can turn the LSC knob to stiffen up on climbs, but it's hard and annoying to do on our tight trails with sudden ups and downs.

    Admittedly I only have one ride on the bike, but I'm super busy at work and would like to accelerate my learning curve on the fork.

    One thought I have is to use slightly higher air pressure for my weight and then more clicks on the OTT.

    I'm about 175 geared up.

    Climbing is going to rely on LSC platform of some sort. You're going to give up some small bump compliance to gain support on climbs. The fastest way to figure it out is pick a place to set everything, ride it, and see what you like and don't like. When you find a place you don't like the small bump compliance at speed as well as you do like that climbing support, that should be your point of ideal compromise.

    Side note: I rode a DVO Diamond. It's a super, super nice fork. I wouldn't be able to live with it on my SS simply because of no bar mounted lock out option.

    Start with DVO base recommendations and tweak from there. It's a great fork and very tunable.

    I did start with the DVO specs for my weight. Initial impressions are very good. I'm looking for the best way minimize pedal bob on the climbs without losing too much of the suspension action of the fork everywhere else.

    Use the LSC knob as your trail/climb/descend control.
