    Yt Capra cf break in?

    Hi guys,
    Received a Capra cf finally. Beautiful bike.

    However, I'm less than impressed with the suspension. The bike climbs Great, however the fork seems to have a tremendous amount of stiction, and the rear, even at 40% sag, feels harsh. Maybe I'm not use to this new school geometry, but I don't feel as "in the bike" as I did on my 08 Norco fluid LT2, and all my fox and Marz forks and shocks felt way plusher than the new rock shock offering. The front and rear just don't suck it up. Running front and rear wide open, with mid rebound seting. I was expecting to be really blown away, but I'm just not getting the slack and back seat feel I had on the Norco. Geometry wise, they seemed pretty similar. I even went to a longer 50mm/6 degree stem.

    Do these rock shocks need a break in period?
    Thoughts?
    Thanks in advance.

    There certainly is a break in period for all suspension products. I would also do a oil change since that takes 5 minutes. Lastly while doing so, give the wipers a good amount of slick honey
