Yeah they are oil/coil withe the air preload
Well im running mine at 10, if your not getting that much maybe try 15?
Maybe 10
Put mine to 0 yesterday and they were a lil squishy - but i could only get the same amount of travel from them
So i just put them back to 10

If theyre really that bad you could change the oil or spring :?

I actually thought mine were the 100mm ones but i actually now think theyre 80mm travel!

I reckon start low and increase it, I haven't felt the need to change it on my 66's on my commencal furious. But then again I'm probably not riding it enough

Here are a few pics of it nearly finished, just needs a bit of paint and the brake hose routed properly when I get some clamps.

Nice build mate, such a nice frame and can take all the abuse you can chuck at it! I found it had a bit of a twitchy arse end on it though when you're riding fast single track.

Looks sweet with the DJs on too!

Brings back fond memories of my old Dual (I sold her about 2/3 years ago, something I regret)

A pic of my old bike :cry:

cheers Gary, your old bike looks well set up too. Josh what seat would you recommend? I like The DMR saddles.

Maybe one like Gary_b's?

Just something a bit more slimline?

Have you ridden it yet? How do you find the crazy bob's?
