Fox 32 ctd 29 float 100mm

Postby sam1villa » Thu Dec 20, 2012 18:44 pm

hi guys im new to the forum and to the world of mountain biking so a little help would be much appreciated,
i recently purchased a cube ltd sl 29" i love the bike however im having issues with the amount of travel on "climb" setting which is supposed to be firm but unfortunately they are far from it.
i have set the SAG according to fox's website, the correct psi for my body weight should be 90 however the travel whilst attacking a hill is truely awfull i have been adding pressure and am now up to 110 psi this is the max i can find on their website i dont want to add anymore just in case.
would anybody have any hint/tips on this issue?
can a lockout be fitted to these forks??

thanks in advance

The pressures they suggest are just a guide - use what feels right to you. A good starting point is 25% sag when you are stood on the bike.

thanks supersonic, i think when i last measured the sag i was about 15% i want to go more and increase the pressure again but 110 psi seems rather a lot already.
any ideas how much pressure i could go without doing damage?

15% is very little - sounds like you need less pressure, not more.

The Climb does not totally lock out the fork, but increases the damping and firms it up - if you feel it is not working properly I would take it back.
