    Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Comp

    hello
    i'm ridding on the FSR Comp 08 Large Size and my wight is 187 pound
    i really enjoy my bike except the bobing issue.
    when i'm riding on plain surface i notice my rear shock is working to hard and my speed is slow. when i tryed the giant trance X3 i did not notice the rear shock.
    My Q is:
    1. is there a tip i can use expect closing the rear shock to imporve my speed feeling?
    2. what is the PSI presure you recommand me to set in the rear shock and on the front shock (Fox 120 RL )
    3. mybe my riding sit angle i snot optimize



    thanks is advanced
    Ben

    Have you read the manual? If you don't have one, visit the Fox website (here's a link and another for the Triad) and download/view online the appropriate version for the shock and fork your bike has. It'll tell you how to check and correct the air pressure in your suspension and how to operate the lock-out or ProPedal function.

    Are you using the ProPedal setting when you are pedaling?

    For the record, I have a 09 Stumpjumper Comp (same bike basically) I weigh 235 lbs without gear and run my rear shock between 235 and 245 (depending on if I'm carrying a pack or not). I have also heard of others that run their shock PSI within 10 lbs of their body weight with this bike.

    For the front, I'm running between 80-85.

    Did you pickup a sag meter from your bikeshop when you bought the bike? If you dont have one the sag for the rear is around 10mm for 25% sag. Make sure you set you front sag too at 25% of total travel. When you set your sag front and back make sure you have your suspension in the open setting not propedal. While your at check your rebound settings, start in the middle setting then tune from their.
