Wondering if the hive mind can help...

Loving my GRiSO, but would appreciate a slightly plusher ride. The roads I ride (Somerset, Dorset, Devon) are a mix of good, bad, and downright ugly and the current settings are... well who knows? So I’m looking for a baseline. What’s a good starting point for a 15 stone bloke?

Thanks in advance!

I ended up winding the compression dampening on my Forks right out (minimum).  The difference was amazing.

Easy to try.  Remember to count the clicks so you can restore it to where it was if you don't like the new setting.

You could then try a similar approach to the rear.

Hi Jason,

Check out this thread [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I replaced the rear shock with a Hagon Stelvio with a 100kg spring, the front raised to one ring showing.
The bike is transformed, i'm 100kg in my gear. Ground clearance also improved.

Prior to this after 120 miles or so on the GRiSO, arse and lower back had taken enough punishment. After the change I've ridden over 300 miles in a day and had no issues.

There's a few of us meeting up next month in wales, check out the Cabals threads for details. At least 2 or 3 of us have changed the rear shock and set up the front. Welcome to join us or meet if you want a look see and chat.

Good luck!

Hi Jason,

Agree with Angus - it's the base shock performance that's the issue & then the spring & then the set up. I'm running rear Matris with 115nm/mm spring for my 77kgs and that works much plusher than stock.......I also have a 2nd hand sachs Stelvio shock which helps but that's not as good as Matris IMHO.

Front end is harder to sort and I've done same with backing out compression, minimal rebound & correct sag using pre-load....it's OKish

I'm 100kgs in my gear - actually probably 105kgs these days.............I had my standard suspension set up by Race Lab and it was definitely an improvement. Ultimately I sent the forks to K-tech who swapped out springs and for their 9kg units (tried 9.5kg initially but was still on the hard side) and I went with a Wilbers on the rear. My original set up as follows:

Hope that image comes through and helps.
