Ooh, is that new? I'd heard / read people were making their own, but it sounded a bit of a faff.


So is that this unit?

Wideopen - Marzocchi


It's not that part, that's a 20mm one, but last time I looked in the workshop we had some 10mm ones, maybe be your lbs to give wide open a call?

Noob question. Does this work inreverse? My NCR fork is 160mm. If I reduce the travel, does the ac distance reduce? I'd like that.
But it's probably easier to replace my riser bar with something flat.


If it's an NCR air fork then yes the 10mm travel spacer will reduce the a-c by 10mm but yes will fractionally steepen the head angle

What are your settings?
I'm only running 2 clicks more of LSR and LSC from the base tune on the CC site.
Just enough to keep the Bob away while keeping its awesome bottomless feel.


Got around to counting the clicks/turns the shock arrived set at, all from full open:
HSC 2.5 turns
LSC 12 clicks
HSR 1.75 turns
LSR 14 clicks

Compared to Base Tune:
HSC 2 turns
LSC 10 clicks
HSR 2 turns
LSR 14 clicks

Before writing these down I'd made one change - backing off the HSR a turn, giving 0.75 turns. Might take it back to Base Tune before doing any more fiddling... The faster HSR was heaps poppier (maybe a little much, but better than the way it arrived), and the idea that there's more plush available in the C circuits without getting silly is exciting.

It's tricky getting enough time to do repeat runs, I wonder how long till I feel like I've dialled it properly.

Very close settings to mine.

As much as I'd like more pop I'm keeping mine slower as to reduce the chance of getting bucked OTB.

Haven't ridden mine in weeks.
Stupid spring moisteez :hmmm:

Moist is fun, I made a fender to keep it out of the pivots - tyre spray is way too direct for my liking.

Moist does not mix with the clay and steep here.
No room for a rear fender on mine either.

:huh:

There's totes room for the fender I made - It will drop your tyre clearance by ~2mm.

I looked at some Cane Creek options. I'm not sure if I'm OCD or not, but I think if I had that many options I would never, ever leave it alone! I think the coil shock on mine has 3 HS, 6 LS and 6 rebound.

That's why they need a 3mm allen, to stop knob fiddlers getting their tune bent all out of shape.

I think I'd start writing my shock settings in vivid on the top tube. I would like to try a bike with one set up. The only person I knew with one did big huckz so it was like riding a rigid bike anyway.

The Cane Creek forum has a bunch of base tunes for all sorts of bikes.
Set it to that then adjust your air pressure and it should work for the majority of riders.
Just a tweak for personal preference :thumbsup:

Ha! I'm still keen to try a dropout swap if you want.
Wanna see how different they feel before dropping the coin or committing to a trade.

Happy to send mine down...
