Apologies for being lazy (I did try and find them, honest!) but I wondered if someone could point me at the post with veejay's suspension settings in as I would like to try them.  :034: :440:

In "search" I just looked for "settings", and this is what came out! You must be VERY lazy!  :082:

I've been running these settings for a week or two now and they are a great improvement on the standard setup

The front is maybe a little too soft now though so I've just added one full turn on the preload to lessen the dive a bit

I've also turned the rebound damping back out two more clicks as the tyre sometimes skips on sharp bumps

Just did this last night so haven't tried it since

That's it   :046:

I did search on various things, one of which was suspension settings, so assume I just didn't look at all the threads. Sorry Barbancourt, but thanks for posting  :028:

  Hi Veejay. Just  picked up my cross tourer  yesterday after a short ride to box hill about 25 miles I changed my settings to your early settings I opted for.

      turned  the 14mm nut all  the way back with a very  small bit forwards .

      the screw  I moved all  the way forward  and came back  2  clicks 

     the rear damper  I Went all forward and  come  back 3 clicks

     The rebound damping after going full clock  wise  I came back a half turn anti clock.

    many thanks  for your suggestion's now ready for ride up to north Yorkshire next weekend
