    Fox rear shock question

    Hi I have a fox wear shock and was wondering what setting most people leave their shock on

    I have the following settings

    locked out... my understanding is great for longer climbs like a fire road but not used in most general trial riding as the shock is not designed to be locked out when descending

    pro-pedal.. my understanding is great for most trials where your elevation is changing fairly regulatory with lots of ups and downs

    open- my understanding is if your going to be doing a lot of descending it's great but if the trial is up nd down it can be inefficient due to the suspension bob causing inefficiency.

    anyway on the trial the other day we were discussing what settings we use some of the other riders are always in the open setting and I always thought propedal would be the best for most riding.


    so what do you use? is my knowledge of the settings accurate ?

    It also really depends on the bike- on my Fisher I usually have it on PP but I know a few guys with Trek Fuel EXs that leave it open because the pivot design helps a ton with the pedal bob.

    Trials riding is way different than trail riding.
