But it is still a far cry from 25/30 % imo.


Are you measuring the sag  or guestimating

Iíve just spent the last 45 mins starting all over again and following fix academy videos . I wasnít equalizing the pressure - so that has helped a bit. Thanks . But it is still a far cry from 25/30 % imo.

It may be the dismount as you say Steve.

However. Iíll take it out for a quick run and see how it goes.

Hope to se some of ye at the dig tomorrow.

John,
The hardest part of setting your sag is getting off the bike without upsetting the o-ring position i.e., compressing it further as you shift your weight to get off. Best option can be to have someone else measure it while youíre on the bike.

Another option, for total confidence in your suspension set up is to rent a ShockWiz for a day/weekend.

Hey,
Have you set the sag as per the manual? I.e. add air, equalize pressure, add more, check sag...etc.
I'd start from the start again just to be sure.

Also, I think Fox max pressure is 350 psi.

I tried adding some air pressure to my sag shock - but no matter how much I add, I appear to be still dropping 50%. Picture attached. Any suggestions? Iíve gone as high as my rock shock pump will allow (300).  Itís a foxdpx2

Found half the answer myself: GPS Accuracy is usually within 3m according to Garmin Support.

So the question left is: How good is it's compass or it's accuracy at knowing which dorection it's being pointed in? All I can find out about it so far is that it's a GPS Compass.

The 530 is the one I'd go for. The 830 is pretty much the same just has a touch screen!! Both are  very good compact computers!!

Had a better post (twice) but forum lost it because of image related issues  ::)  - not rewriting again  :D

It's the ability of the GPS offroad that I'm particularly interested in. Can it find it's way when there are no roads or Trailforks??
I've found a woods within cycling distance of where I live now, but there's no trails and even the fireroad looks like it doesn't get any use. I've tried to explore it using Google Maps, but it was almost useless.
