    Front Shocks

    Hey, I have a set of Rock Shox Pilot shocks on my front wheel and on left fork there is a little knob on the left. Im guessing that its to soften/harden the shocks... would I be right in saying this and is it a case of fiddling with it to get a better feel out of it?

    Cheers..

    It is a preload adjuster. Yes play with it to get the feel you want.

    Cool.. mines a PilotC and its just got a knob up top of left fork saying "Preload" so, I fiddled, clockwise = harder, anti = obviously softer!!

    Is it advisable then for road rides to tighten the susp and really only loosen off when im actually riding along off-road cross country etc,..
