Equipment Question: Suspension on SantaCruz Superlight
First post here. I'm fixing up my mother's 2002 Santa Cruz Superlight to sell on ebay because she never uses it. I've been having a good time cleaning it up and testing it before I sell it.
I'm a MB novice, so this is more of a basic "is this how its supposed to work question."
It has a Fox brand Float racing shock in the rear suspension. When I ride it, it is pretty much always in its fully compressed state. I thought this might be how it is supposed to work, but I'm noticing my pedals are dangerously close to the ground. The shock still damps a bit (seems like not enough) and its compression/expansion rate responds to adjustments on the little dial, but it just seems like it isn't working right. Shouldn't it remain in a pretty uncompressed state during normal pedaling and coasting and what not?
I've been loving this forum, you folks are a wealth of information and personality.
