    Use standard settings, then soften them up as needed. Depends on how much you weigh really and how you ride.

    Check your owner's manual for suggested settings for your weight too.

    I had my bike set up at ERS... like the guys said when he decides to turn up... but well worth the wait. I was the same, boredering a spring change as I was only 74kg but we managed to dial it in, very glad I didnt tinker myself was a lot more than just softening it up, a lot of geometry calculated too and the results were awesome. One thing that surprised me was how badly set up the bike rolled out the factory, differences between the 2 front shock heights, pre-loads, virtually no give in the rear suspension but all is good now.
