    Query re front shock

    Hello All,

    Am new here - don't really know how this will go down, and whether anyone can help - but worth a shot!

    I weigh in at 110 kgs - and have recently put a White Brothers Magic 80, with the IMV valve [set-and-forget] on the front of my old DBR Axis TT...

    Had a squizz at the manual, which tells you more or less how to adjust the settings, but doesn't really help you out in terms of what would be the best setting for your weight.
    Now I realise that it's best to experiment - but this being my first decent shock, I don't really know what it should be doing... I've heard that getting the settings right can increase the performance of your fork by as much as 40% - which is obviously a big difference...

    I ride mostly jeep-track, occasional single-track with no real big drop-offs...

    Anyone familiar with the WB Magic 80?
    If you weigh more or less the same as me - maybe you could point me in the right direction!

    Thanks!

    You might try this in the mechanics and MB forums as well
