I don't think the numbers are based on a 85kg rider, I think the bike is sprung for a 85 kg rider.

If I set my SAG at higher numbers, all I am doing is shortening the available suspension travel for me. Personally, being a fat b@stard I would rather have more suspension travel else I will more than likely start bottoming out my suspension(I do not think this is a good thing to happen!!).

i paid to have my bike suspension professionally set up for my weight etc.. best money I've ever spent.  the electronic suspension on these machines requires setting up for the rider so it has a real base line to work from in order to work at its full potential.. it only cost me 50 at Weardale Racing..
he explained that he's dissapointed that the dealer doesnt spend a short time with each customer setting the sag and pre-load before they drive away.. 

this is just my experience and opinion.. dont shoot me down. it worked for me and the bike felt much more planted and plusher ride after the adjustments were made.

Was it you that took your bike to Ian after I mentioned it on here? I think a few others have been since and every single one of us that has been to see him has said the exact same thing.

It's also worth bearing in mind that the 50 he charges covers you for the entire time you own the bike, you can keep going back to have it adjusted, checked and tweaked for no additional charge

Had the running in service today - no issues found chassis wise. The only opinion offered from them is that DDC Road mode is very soft.  I still think some attention from a proper suspension technician would be a good idea.

Its been said that DDC modes only affect the rear shock. Would that make bike more susceptible to proper little wobble?

I don't believe that is accurate, but I can't provide any proof other than my personal feelings from riding. (too lazy to DL the manual again, lol)

That's funny....I thought you were the one that said that. At the time I replied I thought it affected the front as well but now I'm not so sure.

Guess I misunderstood.

No, I think you (or maybe me, lol) are confusing when I said the riding modes don't affect DDC.
